Love in abundance can be found
if you know where to look
Do you want to be loved?
We all do. As singles, we often believe that our whole life would fall into place if only we could find the right person to love us.
But love doesn't start with another person. It starts with the Holy Spirit, living inside you. If you haven't felt that love yet, it's because you haven't sought it there.
This is not narcissistic love of yourself. It's love of God, who lives inside you, a believer. When we love God, he teaches us how to love him and how to love others. It also means he will teach you to love yourself, in a healthy way.
Maybe you don't think you're lovable. But you're wrong. God loves you. By surrendering yourself to his love and taking the risk to love others, you take on an attractiveness that has nothing to do with hair, figure, cosmetics or clothes.
Read some of these love quotes. Reflect on them. Know with absolute certainty tonight that you are loved.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
If you would be loved, love and be lovable.
Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.
Love listens to the other person and searches for clues on ways to serve, bless and lift up that person.
Why love if losing hurts so much? We love to know that we are not alone.
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love.
A man needs respect like a woman needs love.
For those who abandon themselves to it, God's love contains every good thing, and if you long for it with all your heart and soul it will be yours.
Jean-Pierre De Caussade
There is something wrong about the man whose wife and children do not greet him affectionately on his homecoming.
The melting of our hearts by love is God's way of getting at us.
I know that somewhere in the Universe exists my perfect soulmate -- but looking for her is much more difficult than just staying at home and ordering another pizza.
You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.
The first duty of love is to listen.
Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat.
Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
The more you love God, the more you obey Him--by loving others, behaving with integrity, giving sacrificially. The more you obey God, the more you love God. Love begets obedience, which begets love until they become the same thing.
God wants our affections to turn outward toward our neighbor rather than inward upon ourselves. He is trying to get our minds off ourselves and onto the Kingdom.
Tell God right now that this is the one thing you want above all: the gift of loving him completely. Tell him you will never let him go until he blesses you thus. Tell him that even in eternity you will not let him go until you are 100 percent love. And then you will never want to let him go.
God knows everything, He cares about everything, He can manage everything, and He loves us. What more could we ask?
