day 31 – everything love

Wow! We’ve spent a month together looking at God’s love and even now I know there is so much more to it than we’ve covered.  I guess that’s like anything as we grow in the understanding of God, there always seems to be more to Him.  We may come back to this topic  ...

day 30 – love drawn

It’s almost the end of the month and so I thought it was time to watch one of the chalk arts being drawn while listening to the beautiful Kari Jobe… (switch over to the blog if you’re reading this on email so that you can see the video) God’s love is truly far greater  ...

day 29 – the legend of love

Everyone loves a legend. There is something enthralling about fascinating historical stories filled with challenges, adventure, love and hope.  Parts of a legend may seem almost impossible to be true, but our hearts know they could be and we cry out to believe they are. God wrote His story down  ...

day 28 – patient love

Have you ever wondered why God is taking so long coming back a second time? He loves us, that’s why.  He loves us with a very patient love. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone  ...

day 27 – sacrificial love

When we love someone it always comes with a price.  The price differs depending on our circumstances and the circumstances of the one we love.  The greater the love and the more valuable the relationship, the more we seem willing to pay. It’s true that the blessings of loving someone  ...

day 26 – sabbath love

God, through His grace, created us to rest. He rested in creation, and likewise commanded the Israelites in Exodus 20 to work for six days and to rest on the seventh.  God instituted the Sabbath as a part of His love for us. So how do we find this rest, how do we “do” a Sabbath? My  ...

day 25 – identifying love

God has so many names in the bible.  Some of them you may be familiar with in the Hebrew form, for example, El Shaddai, Adonai, Jehovah-Jireh.  Others you may know in English, like Ancient of Days, Bright Morning Star, I Am, Alpha & Omega. All names are very significant throughout bible.   ...

day 24 – intricate love

It’s not often I can lay in the grass, but today I did.  I lay silently on the edge of the botanic gardens watching the world God created. When you actually stop and look with unrushed eyes they begin to open.  Details you hadn’t noticed before suddenly appear and everything I could  ...

day 23 – embedded love

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.  If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.  John 15:9-10 Have you ever realised that we have a choice to remain in Christ’s love?  Christ  ...

day 22 – listening love

When you speak and someone turns away not listening, how does that make you feel?  What about when you speak and someone draws near, desperate to hear more, paying attention to your every word? It’s so different, isn’t it?  It encourages us, makes us want to speak more and open our  ...
