The Period Says It All

God is Love. Period.
~Ashley Judd

So simple, yet so profound - God IS Love.  

The whole of The Gospel is wrapped up in those three little words.

The whole of life is also.

We all seek love; needing it as much as our lungs needs air. We need to BE loved and we need to be able to GIVE love.

God IS Love.  He cannot do, or be, anything outside of Himself. Every prayer He answers and even those yet to be answered, He does from the motive of pure, unadulterated love toward us. 

Shakespeare said, "To thine own self be true".  Do we expect any less from God?  He must be true to Himself - to Love even, what we consider, the vilest of human beings.

Can we even comprehend it?

God is Love. Period.

Love that is absolutely complete - wanting nothing, except to give.

Love that is so strong as to defy any interference from natural, human, or demonic forces.

Love that is genuine - above and beyond our romantic notions of love.

Love that is so inhuman that it is a conquering force - literally.

Love that is so encompassing that it encircles our lives with a force field of protection.

Love that is so life transforming to those who welcome it, that a human soul can be reborn anew, akin to a caterpiller becoming a butterfly.

Love that is so deep that no pit that hell can hold man in can hide from It's Light.

Love so wide that it spreads beyond east and west, north and south. If we were to go into the next galaxy, Love would still search us out.

Love so releasing that every human soul - with all their deep emotinal scars, dysfunctions, anger, bondage's, and depravity - can be set free, leaving the soul in peace that surpasses all understanding.

Love so non-threatening, that it forces Itself on no one.

Love we try to emulate in our human finiteness, but is absolutely impossible without Love's Grace.

If God is Love, then God is Gracious. Period.

Need to be loved today?  Need a little grace so you can love others? Love and Grace are yours, freely given; just open your arms, open your heart, and ask.  Period.

Because of Him and Unto Him,

Marco, welcome to my blog! I'm really blessed that you stopped by, took the time to read and comment. Thank you.

On the right hand side, under EXCERPTS FROM MY MEMOIR, there is a story about Joe's Mom. The first story is about his cousin, Linda, which I'm sure you met when you were young. I just thought you'd enjoy reading about Mom.

Thanks again, Maco. I'm glad you liked the post.
