Spiritual Sunday "The Power of Love"

 Spiritual Sundays are hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. To join in...post and add your name at http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com   

"I have found.....that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love." Mother Teresa

Love.....I never knew what it was....not until He touched me. And even then....I resisted...and fought....doing everything to push Him away. But He wouldn't go. He wouldn't leave. He stayed. He waited....until I was ready...to calm down....to trust that He would never leave....to always be in my corner....in the good times....and bad. It's strange about love....it hurts at first when you're not used to it. It hurts so much...that even though you hunger for it....you're afraid to feel its pain...

His love is something I had never experienced. It changed me. It changed the way I looked at the world....and even the way I looked at myself. His love is real. One hundred percent real. I'm proof.....and because He hung in with me.....never giving up.....never letting go....I want to be like Him....I want to walk in that kind of love too.  

 I say love is a flower....and you its only seed....

What a wonderfully-appropriate video! 'Have to confess that I never fully immersed myself in the lyrics before today. My world's a better place tonight for having done so - thank you!

I agree with Renee... I could not get this week's SS link to work. You may want to repost. I found you via last week's. I wouldn't miss your Spiritual Sunday post for anything!
Blessings, dear one.

I'm glad He is willing to wait on us. Sometimes it hard to even trust God.

I deleted two links. The one left seems to work OK. I absolutely love this song. My daughter listened to it over and over and over again when she was a teenager back in the 80s. I learned to love it then, and it brings back wonderful memories now. I love how He never gave up on you and you learned to love as he loved you. I love how you're sharing it with us now.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Sarah, have you read "Hound of Heaven?" It reminds me a lot of you. I think you would relate to it if you have not read it.

What lovely praise and worship music and such a powerful testimony of His love for us and how He wants us to love others. It's not easy, but so worth it! Thank you for a lovely visit :)

Karen said...

Amen! 100% real...nothing fake or artificial about the love of God!

Felisol said...

I love the song. Also the quote of Mother Theresa.
Most of all I love our Bible who over and over again confirms "God is love."

Just Be Real said...

Sarah, a beautiful song and what you wrote from Mother Theresa. I know you quote her a lot. Blessings to you dear one, JBR.

Stephani said...

Beautiful thoughts on love. Thanks for sharing.

Anita Johnson said...

I'm so glad you found LOVE through Jesus Christ...it's sort of hard to grasp the depth of a love like that. "Amazing love, how can it be, that you my King should die for me!"

That's beautiful.

Lynda Young said...

His Love is the only perfect Love. And through Him we can share that love with others.
Blessings,
