The Flowing Tide of Love

Love and its flowing tide is big and powerful. I hate my dependence on it and want to break free from its hold on me yet without it I could not survive.

I’ve learned about losing love in the flow of the seasons’ changing tide when, in a place of dark despair, I have reached out to it and it’s not been there.

Ah, but then, a nudge, a whisper, a touch – a word of comfort from another in their own need reaches out to me and the connection floods our souls with what we thought we’d lost.

It fills us with a new beginning, a new path to walk that brings us back into the light, the light of life, always to the light of love.

Love is the only thing that matters, love is what lasts forever because it outlives us time and time again.

When I think of friends who are gone they still live because I loved them, love them still, and when they left they took that love with them.

Love can never die.

Is this what you mean by eternal life Lord? That those who believe will never die?

Then Jesus said: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will live, even though they die, and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.’ (John 11:25,26)

God is LOVE.

LOVE never dies.
