A beautiful prize

A beautiful prize

img_2325

For God so loved He gave…..true love gives.
Love gives, lust takes.
In a world of takers, dare to be different.

No chocolate confection
Will replenish the desire for pure affection

There is not a bouquet
To appease the pure way

No card can say
What a heart desires in one day

But coupled with love and purity
These each enhance love’s security

So look for the real, lasting and kind
Because love is beautiful, on purpose, and never unkind!

“Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:13‬ ‭TPT

 

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you Shalom.

 

Until next time, thanks for listening with me.
