A Love That Seeks

By: Gabriela Yareliz

This morning, I was reading about how God loves and pursues us. The way He romances our souls and goes after us.

“Marriage stands for the creation of unity among two people who were once separated in every way before love reached out and found the other– the way God reached out and found us, and covenanted with us, and loved us, and despite who we are, despite what we’re like, still loves us.” Fervent, by Priscilla Shrier, pg. 76

“Sometimes love isn’t firecrackers. Sometimes love just comes softly.” Janette Oke

“I never, till now, had a friend who could give me repose; all have disturbed me, and, whether for pleasure or pain, it was still disturbance. But peace overflows from your heart into mine.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne, letter to Sophia Hawthorne

“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die. And when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again…” Phillip Pullman

“In true love, we don’t play hide and seek.. Instead we seek one another!” 💙🙏 @KushaAlagband

God is the ultimate seeker. He never gives up. He keeps going until He finds us. He conquered death and has our names engraved on His palms. He infuses peace in our souls. He is love; and love is patient and kind. It never fails.
