A letter to Those searching for Love

Dear All who have been let down by human love,

It is so amazing how temporary human love is. How we obsess so much over it. How powerful it can be in one moment, then gone in the next. How fragile it is. And often times we choose it over God’s love, which is unbearably much more powerful, fulfilling, and everlasting. It never fades, not even the slightest bit. His love never gives up, but always perseveres. It always forgives. When we have God and His love, we do not need anything else. In fact, His love is better than the life we live, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. His love out does it all. If only we could understand more! To know God and to feel Him! To be drenched and filled with His love. We have all been searching for that true love, when He’s been knocking on the doors of our hearts all along. Maybe it is time to answer the door and find out what real True Love is.

Sincerely,  Ally ❤

P.S.- I would totally recommend reading 1 John 4, it is my favorite passage and beautifully defines love.

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.-Psalm 63:3

But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.-Psalm86:15

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.-1John 4:8

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.-1 Corinthians 13:4-8

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.-1 John 4:18-19

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.   For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.   Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.-John 3:16-18
