Your Love – He’s So Fine

DAILY PROMPT – He/She is So Fine

What was it that drew you to your significant other?

People said we would never make it.  We have both been married before – both had spouses who were not faithful. Both had given up on ever finding anyone to be with. Both had given up on love a long time ago. It hurt too much.

God had other plans…we have been together 7 years now. What a testimony of what God can do. Thank you Jesus!

This picture is from about 6-7 years ago, when we first met.

And all those doubters and nay-sayers can just shut up already!

YOUR LOVE

©2013 by Diana Rasmussen (6/16/2012 – Fathers Day- for Bob)

 

Your love is patient, Your love is kind

Your love is faithful, Your love is true

Your love is compassionate , Your love is extravagant

Your love never ends, It changes everything

 

Your love is long, Your love is wide

Your love is deep, Your love is high

 

Your love is forgiveness, Your love is grace

Your love is peaceful, Your love is safe

Your love is hopeful, Your love is honest

Your love never ends, It changes everything

 

Your love is long, Your love is wide

Your love is deep, Your love is high

 

1 Corinthians 13:4-14
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!  But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.

 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love

When Death Dies

“When Death Dies”

by Gungor

Like the waters flooding the desert
Like the sunrise showing all things

Where it comes flowers grow
Lions sleep, gravestones roll

Where death dies all things live
Where it comes poor men feast
Kings fall down to their knees
When death dies all things live
All things live

Like a woman searching and finding love
Like an ocean buried and bursting forth

Where it comes flowers grow
Lions sleep, gravestones roll

Where death dies all things come alive
Where it comes water’s clean
Children fed
All believe
When death dies all things live
All things live

There is a nice symmetry in this: Death initially came by a man, and resurrection from death came by a man. Everybody dies in Adam; everybody comes alive in Christ. But we have to wait our turn: Christ is first, then those with him at his Coming, the grand consummation when, after crushing the opposition, he hands over his kingdom to God the Father. He won’t let up until the last enemy is down—and the very last enemy is death! (1 Corinthians 15:21-26 MSG)

CHANGED – In the Twinkling of an Eye

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHANGE

I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.  Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:50-52 NIV)
