It's been a reflective journey for me, looking back on what the Lord has been teaching me the past several years. I believe it was 3 years ago on our anniversary that my husband bought us some windchimes that sound like church bells. They are actually called "Corinthian Bells".
They were so symbolic to me of what God was doing in us as a married couple. It caused me to reflect alot on love and each time I would hear the bells ring It would remind me that love is a language that ALL can hear. And I knew the Spirit was speaking to me that if we keep the faith that was entrusted to us, and don't give up hoping in His promises, that love will be perfected in us...
Paul ended the 12th chapter of the book of Corinthians with these words: But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way. Chapter 13 begins with :If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. This is why I spoke of love as beautiful music. It makes sense to me that if Paul says- not having love, is like noise that makes you want to cover your ears, then possessing love would be like a sweet melody. EVERYONE can hear such a melody! The world is hungering for love -true love, the kind that does not fail.
|Love never fails; the giver -or the recipient|
