He IS Love

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him."
1 John 14:16
The following little snippet of song came to me
as I was pondering the scripture above.
I realized that our past experience has clouded our thinking,
and that what we understand is often a distorted image of love.

Wash over us, Lord
Cleanse all our thoughts of love
Whatever we think it is
Whatever we thought it was
Wash it all away
So that we may know
The true and perfect love
That comes from You alone!

Ah, my flickering firefly!! Such a wonderful post!!

Yes, our God is love--full of unconditional love for us--and I am so grateful for this.

I do agree with you that our past experiences with love can cast a distorted vision of what love truly is. We need to erase those old tapes running around in our heads and replace them with new tapes from God--You are loved, you are worthy, you are valuable to me, and yes, you are forgiven.

Thank you, Jesus, for going to the cross for me, for all of us.
