HeartStrings for Valentines Day

Cupid’s Arrow

Write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!

 

This is today’s daily post. I don’t really believe in Cupid. Some little fat dude with wings and arrows that shoots at you. Nope. Not real. I believe that love comes from God and He is the one who shows us what it is and what it isn’t. And there is no bow and arrow to make it all happen, lol!  HeartStrings – they pull at you from beyond. Love never dies. God’s love for us, and our love for each other lives on. We are loved, and we are not alone.

Love gives

Love forgives

Love never dies

 

If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such [a]as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).

Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not love (God’s love in me), I gain nothing.

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. (1 Corinthians 13: 1-8 AMP)

 

HEARTSTRINGS

I miss you like
The stars miss the sun
Walk down memory lane
I know I’ll run
Into you there

I hear your voice
Echoing my name
I wander in the wind
And wonder if you’re still the same
I come undone
I come undone
Your Heartstrings capture me

Smell the sea, feel the sun
See the stars touch the night
Your Heartstrings capture me
Oh I come undone
I come undone

Linger longer
Rearrange my mind
Please make room for you to stay
As the days slip so quietly away
I come undone
I come undone

I hear your voice
Echoing my name
I wander in the wind
And wonder if you are still the same
Your Heartstrings capture me
I come undone
I come undone

Peace waves
Hope stays
Love lives forever
Love lives forever
Love lives forever

Love Wins

Love Wins

Copyright 2014 Diana Rasmussen

Stock with love

Always gonna be the haters
those who point and laugh
Bullies want to put you down
to get you to doubt
Who I am on the inside
Is more than you see on the outside
Even when I fall,
I’ll rise 7 times stronger
You can’t keep me down, I’ll last longer
Hate may fight in the night
But in the end, love wins
They have hearts of stone, cold as ice
They beat you down with
Angry words that cut like knives
they are all just lies
Who I am on the inside
Is more than you see on the outside
Even when I fall,
I’ll rise 7 times stronger
You can’t keep me down, I’ll last longer
Hate may fight in the night
But in the end, love wins
I am perfect in God’s eyes
Chosen, marked, and loved
That’s all that I need
it’s good enough for me
Love wins

 

 

GOD’S WORD FOR YOU:

The Way of Love

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

(1 Corinthians 13:1-7 The Message (MSG))

 

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,

Thank you for reminding us today that Love Wins!  Despite all the trials, tribulations, and sandpaper people we run into – love wins.  Thank you Lord that your love is the greatest force ever created in the universe.  Help us to walk in love towards You. Let us love our neighbors as we love ourselves. And let us love ourselves as You love us, in Jesus Name.
