SingleVision March 2011 Newsletter Revision

Greetings!  

 

Love is All You'll Find

In the beautiful devotional book called Grace For the Moment by
Max Lucado, there is a wonderful entry entitled "Love Is All You'll Find."  With great assurance, Lucado talks about the character of God and what he offers us in relationship with him.

Have you ever had a day when you felt no love or concern from others, and maybe you really needed that care?  I have had a terrible crick in my neck all day, and it developed into a severe headache.  One of my friends massaged my neck and gave advice for taking care of it when I got home.  Several friends noticed I was in pain and inquired how I was.  Another friend arranged to take me home, and she and her husband returned my car to me after
choir practice.
I remembered what Max Lucado said when he talked about God's love.  He said love is what we'll find when we probe every aspect of God.  Before every decision he made, and after every story he told, there was love.  God is love, 
and he teaches us how to love others as well.  Like my sweet friends today, love was a precious gift given. I have not been able to accomplish what I needed to do today, but I have received God's love, and that's all I need to find.

God bless you,

Marcy
