A Rain-Drop-Size Love that Needs Growing — 10 Comments

  1. I have spent a fair amount of time thinking about love, particularly my love for God and others. So much if what I do feels like duty much more than the overflow of a loving heart, and then I remember that love DOES. It’s not just a feeling.

    • Wise words, Michele. “Love DOES.” Love is a choice that tenders our hearts and forgives. It’s a big and deep thing! If there’s more to know of it, I surely want to experience it holisticly – in the doing and the feeling!

  2. Well said and what a reminder of how much greater He is than we can imagine or find words for. You’re right, our love is so small compared to His. But I also know that anyone (like you) who pursues Him as you do and sits with Him as you do will gain a greater sense of it than those who never pursue Him in friendship and deep intimacy.

  3. MAryleigh, this is just beautiful, and I thank you for every word. In these hard and contentious days we are living, may my love for the Lord increase so that my love for others will also. And for that to occur, we must “kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus.” I’ll be spending time in that portion today and joining you in prayer. Blessings!
