February 14, 2011: The King of Love Our Shepherd Is

~ by Mary Galvano

Love sweet love. Isn’t it wonderful to know that we have the King of love as our Lord and Savior? God can be whatever He chooses, but love is His name. He rules the world with love.

But let us remember love doesn’t always mean the fuzzy feelings that we get with a romance or the cuddling of a cute puppy dog. It is much more than that. It is a decision, a responsibility. It isn’t always easy. In fact, it can be difficult at times. When we choose to love, we choose to surrender ourselves to whatever comes our way. Love is strong, though, and can get us through anything.

Our love isn’t perfect either. God’s love is perfect. He created it! We mere mortals have all different kinds of love; love of a brother or sister, love of our parents, love of our spouse, love of our favorite pet, but God loves us equally and unconditionally. Not one of us is loved differently. He loves each of us as if we were the only person on Earth. The creation of life itself is an example of His great love for us. Can you even fathom all this without getting goose bumps?

Knowing the love God has for us makes life worth living. The love of God gets us through the most trying times. It also gives us the most exuberating joy. Love is awesome. It makes me want to sing from the mountaintop! Just like the song says, “Since Love is Lord over heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?”

Happy Valentine’s! May the Love of God be with you all.
