Love Notes 3

My latest  scripture focus was on Psalm 63:3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. I have been "chewing" on this scripture for months.  In light of everything going on in the world today, the chaos, sickness, hatefulness, deceit, loss, etc., it has been challenging at times to give God all of the praise He so rightly deserves.  Because His steadfast love is better than life.....     His love supercedes all of the turmoil around us and is a healing balm for our hearts.   And so.... even in the midst of chaos, anger, sickness, death, etc., I must remember that His love is always available to me and is truly better than life.  He is worthy of praise no matter what.   * I try my best to have the photos match the original artworks as exactly as possible, but colors may vary from monitor to monitor.  ** All images on this website are © by Michelle McSpadden, and may not be copied or used in any way without expressed written permission

Love...is caring, kind, truthful, patient, hopeful, and endures as Paul expounds in 1 Corithians 13 verse 4 - 7: Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritab

I got a little behind on my podcasts and then discovered that the microphone that I use doesn't work very well, so I will share Project Love/PROject Love info via blogposts for a while.   The most recent scripture I focused on was John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. This scripture is probably the most quoted bible verse of all time. For some people, it is the summation of the gospel in just a sentence. For me, in the last few weeks that I have been contemplating this particular scripture, it has that meaning and more during this season of my life. For me, God didn't just love....He so loved. Loved more than anybody could or would. I could say that He simply loved me by filling my lungs with air, but even more than just having life, He wanted me to have life beyond this earthly existence. He so loves me. He so loves me that He doesn't want me to perish. He doe
