A to Z of Gratitude–Letter L


L is for love.

The love God had for me because he sacrificed His own Son for my sins.

The love He had for me as my adopted Father.

The love He gave me when I finally met my husband.

The love He gave me again when I became a mother four times.

The love He continues to show me in various ways.

Knowing that He is with me at all time – good and bad.

Without love I would be nothing.


There is are popular verses in the Bible about LOVE.   Check out 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Someone once challenged us to replace LOVE in these verses by our name.   When you do so you quickly realize that there is no way that we can be like that.   Then replace the word LOVE by God.    Think about it.   He is LOVE.   He is all these things.  He can do it….
