Love Loves



Love loves
and we cannot turn it down
We may turn away from it
Utter excuses of unworthiness
Feeling justified then
in our rejection of it,
or our disappointment in it
But love loves
in spite of us
...we cannot turn it down

This is why Jesus came
to teach us how to love
Then imperfection
can put on perfection
not because of who we are
But because of who He is
Thereby
Love loves
and we cannot turn it down

In spite of what we think
or do
or say
or think we ought to think
or do
 or say
Love loves
and we may turn away from it
But
we cannot turn it down

We would always be unworthy
but for Jesus
His love allows us to say 'yes'
in spite of ourselves...
in our weaknesses,
In our brokenness
in shortcomings,
in our gross need
of forgiveness
He so loves us
as we ought to love one another
We cannot turn it down

In spite of our unworthiness
We can say 'yes'
'Yes' to His strength,
'Yes' to His healing,
'Yes' to His fulness
'Yes' to His grace
Because the Father of Love
Is perfect
Filling with worth
our flawed imitations
of Love

 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.…1 John 4:9-11

Since someone handed words of appreciation and love back to me with a 'no thank-you', siting shortcomings and weaknesses as reasons, I have been pondering Love.
If we wait until we are without weakness or imperfection then no one could love or be loved
until Heaven!
