“We love Him, because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 Print E-mail

“Behold, thou art fair, my love” (Song of Solomon 4:1).  “The love of my soul” (Jer.12:7).  Every saved soul is Christ’s love… Then, poor tempted soul, when thou art assaulted and afflicted with temptations and the hidings of His face, yet think on these two words, “My love,” still.  - BUNYAN

Oh Lord, when I turn to Thee with all the desire of my soul, I am emptied of myself, and for me there is no more any labour nor any burden, and my life is filled with Thee, and Thou dwellest in me, and givest me to drink of Thy love, so that I forget all pain.  – ST. AUGUSTINE

Loved, with all the love that fills the heavens
With eternal song,
Weep not, weary heart – how short the sorrow
And the love – how long!

The love of God, oh, if you only knew how it compensates for the indifference of our fellow-creatures!  – GOLD DUST
