The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Love is Life…

When we get to Heaven, come find me in the library at the University of the Universe…
I’ll be studying two things: 

Love, and music…

“Love is oneness– oh, how sweet
   To obey this law,
The unlovely we may meet
  Need our love the more.
Make us one, O love, we plead
With men’s sorrow and their need.

We are one in needing love,
  (Let us true love show)
Only love’s sun from above
  Makes our spirits grow.
‘Love us!’ this is our heart’s need,
‘Let us love’ –and live indeed!

We are also one in this, 
  We must love or die,
Loving others is true bliss,
  Self-love is a lie!
Love of self is inward strive, 
Love turned outward is true life.

Let us love and fruitful be,
  Love is God’s own breath,
Love will kindle love and see
  New life born from death.
Nowhere is a heaven more sweet
Than where loving spirits meet.”

  1. That book is amazing, is it not? The King of Love is more than beautiful! And His power to save to the uttermost even the most wretched…
    And to see the individual love and attention He gives each of His lambs. As if they were the only one in the whole wide world to love…

  2. "That book" and three others have done more to make me love being a Christian than… almost anything else.

  3. Who is the book by? It sounds like a wonderful book, and I might like to get my hands on one! 🙂 I love good books and I love to read inspiring things.

  4. It is by Hannah Hurnard… Actually, the second in a set of two.
