Love that Heals

Linking up with Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday  and Laura at  Brag on Fridays

"I'm floating like mercury around the earth. My footprints shine with stardust. All because I love you. All because You love me." Maya Angelou

Feeling loved makes everything in life so much easier and fun. There was a time I couldn't feel it. When someone said they loved me......I pushed them away. It hurt too much. 

But when He loved me.....I couldn't resist. His love scaled my wall.....broke through all the shame and angst that had kept me living on life's edge. His love......gentle and powerful made the difference. 

He didn't care that I put up a fight and resisted....It didn't matter that I tried to push Him back. He stayed.....and loved and healed and freed what nothing else had ever been able to do. 

The gentleness of His love made all the difference

  Happy Valentines Day Guys!

He is proud of who you are and he has faith in who you’ll become.

Yes!
I have to disagree a bit with Whitney's song lyrics.
..."The Greatest Love of All" isn't necessarily learning to love ourselves .... but realizing He loves us unconditionally and always.
Wonderful post!

I am SO glad that His love is the kind that we can rest in. Thanks for sharing this, Nikki. Listening to Michael W. Smith right now...

You are so right... God's love is gentle and powerful...

The song says, when you want to walk away, he is asking you to stay.

I never heard this song before, but it is beautiful, like all other Michael W Smith's songs!

Thanks for the way your share so honestly. It has such a healing effect on me.

Happy Valentine's Day, too!

Love

Jesus is the Source of our Love, Joy, Peace, Healing and all that is good. There is no one who could love me like Jesus. I thank Him for meeting me at the crossroads of my life many years ago, and for changing me from the inside out. He is still working in my life and for that I thank Him. Praise the Lord for great things He has done in our lives. I thank Jesus for you my dear Sister in Christ. God Bless you for all you share.
Happy Valentines Day to you Nikki.
Hugs, Dianne :)

Oh how I can relate ...I grew up feeling unloved ...and longed to know true love ... I found it or actually it came to me, Jesus Christ....truly I am now loved !
