fresh from the Word

Psalm 63:3  Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise You.

There are more moments, than not, that I feel the love towards me, from the people in my life, always lacks something.  How awful, it seems to me, to feel such a thing.  Should I feel that way when my logical mind KNOWS they love me?

However, human love is imperfect.  It leaves you wanting - no matter how great someone loves you {which is difficult for me to comprehend}.

God's love fulfills.
God's love satisfies.
God's love is better than life.
It is perfect.

When I find myself seeking love from a human source, as my main source, I need to turn to God and seek it from Him.  As I nurture my relationship with the Lord, my "need" for human love disappears.

A wise woman once said to me, "Because you are loved with a perfect love, you don't need love."

May you and I choose to seek that truth today, and always.


Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year - it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul. -Unknown
