Love’s Wellspring

Here is an excerpt from the tenth chapter of my new release, "The Signature of God":

"The fact that we're here proves God loves us. From a human standpoint, there’s no logical reason for our existence on earth. In fact, if we were to calculate or examine things from a scientific point of view, the probability that we would exist is practically nonexistent. Yet, God chose to create the universe, form the earth, fill the earth, and bring human beings and animals to inhabit it with the precision, detail, artistry, genius, innovation, and foresight that only He could. And here we are—proof that we’re part of His plan. God made each one of us individually and knows us through and through.

In Romans 11:36 (NLT), the Bible tells us, 'For everything comes from Him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.' God created everything, including us, for His glory and to reveal His love. We talked in earlier chapters about how 'God made mankind in his own image' (Genesis 1:27) and how each one of us is 'fearfully and wonderfully made' (Psalm 139:14). As His image-bearers, we reflect His glory and point to His existence. We are living, breathing examples of His great love and acceptance."

Love's Wellspring

The unselfish, unconditional love continually flows outward and overwhelms me.

This love is the purest in the world.

It is given with no expectation.

I know the love of God because of you.

To know that I am because of you is enough.

When I feel unworthy, you are there encouraging.

My unsureness vanishes at your touch.

If you are goodness, then I must be the same.

This bond surely cannot break.

Won't I recognize you transformed?

Doesn't the eye know it's hand?

Will I know your mother and her mother, too?

It is all connected.

Love is more than the sum of the parts.

Eternal, enduring, knowing no end—

Love is the wellspring from God's heart.
