Word Filled Wednesday





My friends, God is the ultimate definition of love. Love has no color, no nationality, no gender, and does not play favorites. Love does one thing, and does it perfectly, loves. God loves us beyond measure, and He shows us daily how to love others. His heart's desire, is for us to allow Him to be used to be a vessel, that He can freely pour out His love upon each day, and then pour that love into empty, needy vessels.
Are you a willingly vessel, or a needy vessel my friend? God's wellspring of love, never runs dries.

I like the fact that whether we're a willing or needy vessel there's always a fresh supply awaiting us when we stay connected to the source from which Love flows. Happy WFW, Denise!

I used to frequently (and still do occasionally) substitute God's name for Love in the 1 Corinthians 13 verses. God is patient, God is kind . . .

It helped me understand more fully just how perfectly God loves us. He is perfect love.
