Love So Sweet

Characteristics of Love!  Click the link: Love

 

Its sweet like the nectarof the garden flower,

its soothing like the buzzing

of a bumble bee,imagesZO0FS1WZ

its warm like the rays

of the morning sun,

its the search of a love so pure

which keeps me on the run.
its the pulse in my vein,

the thoughts in my brain,

in every breath that I take,

the smile my lips make,

its in the twinkle of my eye,

till the day I die.
its the dream in my sleep,

its springs freshest leaf;

a love so rare like this

will always be with me for keeps.
its the warmth of my blood,

as my feelings flood,

as says my heart’s beat,

its depth touches the ocean’s feet.
even if its heart searing pain,

with nothing to gain,

I will feel it as the tear on my cheek,

and without words my soul will speak.
a feeling so sincere,

a bond so strong,

I know my soul will never guide me wrong.
I will wait till my last sunset,

till my heart slows down with a dull ache,

till my eyes are wet,

till I meet my soul’s mate,

yes, I will wait.

Sweet Valentine

Sweet Valentine, Sweet Love of mine
I give my all and my heart to Thee
So precious are You to me, LORD
Your Love is all I know and see

Never have I known a man
To love me more sweetly and true

aThan You, my beloved Savior
In all You ever say and do

Truly you are the Love of my life
You are the One for Whom I sing
Great is the joy, the peace, the comfort
That every day to me You bring

Stay with me, my Beloved
I plead that You never leave my side
Betrothed I am, with all Your Church
To be Your pure and beloved Bride

You died for me, my Love
On Calvary You poured out Your all
How can I but answer and follow
When You, my Lord, do call?

Bind my heart to Yours, my Jesus
Grant that You and I may never part
For to know You is to know love
So I give You my all and my heart

On this Day of Saint Valentine
I celebrate You and the love You give
Wondrous it is to be in love with You
To be one with You is to truly live

May each one know you, dear Lord
May each one experience Your love sweet
May each one find You and Your Heart
May I express Your love to each one I meet

Life Eternal and Love Unceasing
Both I have found in You, the Son
You are to me everything, yes, all things
You are my meaning, my passion and my One

So a song of Valentine I sing to You
My heart beats for You as I sing rhyme
I have found my eternal and my true Love
Yes, He will be with me until the end of time.

Meditation and Separation

Whatsoever parteth the hoof and cheweth the cud.  Leviticus 11:3 (R. V.)

The animals, in which these two characteristics met, were reckoned clean, and therefore fit for food. It is certain that the minute particularity of these words has some further reference than to the diet of Israel, important though that was, or to accentuate with every meal the necessity of their being a separate people. We, at least, may gather this lesson, that in our daily experience we must combine meditation and separation.

Meditation. – The cattle do not simply browse on the pastures, but they lie down to chew the cud. It is not enough to peruse our allotted Scripture portion; we must ruminate upon it, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, and scripture with scripture. The Holy Ghost will take of the things of Christ and show them unto us, and He will bring all things to our remembrance.

Separation. – “Whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God.” “The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” We have not meditated to good purpose unless we have felt its keen edge. Detachment from the world must follow on true attachment to Christ. Love to Naomi will draw Ruth from Moab across the Jordan.

The two must be combined. – The swine divideth the hoof, but cheweth not the cud, and was therefore unclean. A man may profess to love his Bible, but the supreme test is his daily separation from evil. On the other hand, our daily life ought to emanate, not from without, which is Pharisaism, but from within, where we chew the cud of holy meditation.

Harmless As A Dove

“Be like the dove” (Jer. xlviii. 28).

Harmless as a dove, is Christ’s interpretation of the beautiful emblem. And so the Spirit of God is purity itself. He cannot dwell in an unclean heart. He cannot abide in the natural mind. It was said of the anointing of old, “On man’s flesh it shall not be poured.”

The purity which the Holy Spirit brings is like the white and spotless little plant which grows up out of the heap of manure, or the black soil, without one grain of impurity adhering to its crystalline surface, spotless as an angel’s wing.

So the Holy Spirit gives a purity of heart which gives its own protection, for it is essentially unlike the evil things which grow around it. It may be surrounded on every side with evil, but it is uncontaminated and pure because its very nature is essentially holy and divine. Like the plumage of the dove, it cannot be soiled, but comes forth from the miry pool unstained and unsullied by the dark waters, because it is protected by the oily covering which sheds off every defilement and makes it proof against the touch of every stain.

Days Of Heaven On Earth

Nature’s harshness has melted away and she is now beaming with the smile of spring, and everything around us whispers of the gentleness of God. This beautiful fruit is in lovely harmony with the gentle month of which it is the keynote. May the Holy Spirit lead us these days into His purity, quietness and gentleness, subduing every coarse, rude, harsh and unholy habit. May He make us like Him-of whom it is said, He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets (Matthew 12:19)

The man who is truly filled with Jesus will always be a gentleman. The woman who is baptized of the Holy Spirit will have the instincts of a perfect lady, although lowborn and untutored in the schools of earthly refinement. Let us receive and reflect the gentleness of Christ until the world will say of us, as the polished infidel Chesterfield once said of the saintly Fenelon, “if I had remained in his house another day, I should have had to become a Christian.”

Lord, help us today to so yield to the gentle Dove-Spirit that our lives shall be as His life.

A. B. Simpson

The fruit of the Spirit is . . . gentleness—Galatians 5:22

Pure Gold

th-13

“For the Lord your God is testing you to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your [mind and ] heart and with your entire being.” Deuteronomy 13:3 Amplified

It is in the heat of the flame that separates the impurities from pure gold.

Although we don’t necessarily find times of testing enjoyable, these times determine what we are truly made of in the process.

The fire takes nothing from the property of the gold, nor decreases its value. Similarly, testing times are used to purify our hearts. Testing times also help us see how much we have learned and grown in our walk with God.

There is a familiar quote that says, “When a teacher is teaching he/she talks, but when a teacher is testing he/she is silent.”The same holds true with the God. He is always in the midst of every test we face, and even though He may be silent, His silence doesn’t mean that He is absent.

During our trials, the Lord is our endurance. He is our strength during difficulties, patience during times of testing, and peace during tribulation.

Yes, it may be hot during the process of purification, but we will come forth as pure gold.
