Everlasting Love

 

The Lord has spoken to you in the past saying “I have loved you with an everlasting love: I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again.                                    Jeremiah 31:3-4

 

 

The Angels look so beautiful blowing in the wind and there was a real stillness peace at the church today as I was watching them blow around in the gentle cold wind.

Available in the porch ready to hang on the tree there are hearts to hang with “You are loved “on them.

Take one of the hearts. As you hold it remember the name of someone who needs to be restored, physically, mentally, or spiritually.

Ask God to wrap them in his everlasting love. Now place your heart on the tree in the church yard .

This God called love reaches us into the deepest parts of us, definitively answering questions that continues to haunt us …..what does God really think of me? Would he still really love me if he know me? Am I good enough, strong enough, smart enough ….for his love penetrates the wall we thought was protecting us … the great sadness, the darkest part of us ….the broken pieces of our heart that have diminished us. The great “I am” is coming to take all of our ” I am nots” and redefining them in his divine embrace …

This song Pieces says it all …

PIECES

unreserved, unrestrained

your love is wild

your love is wild for me

it isn’t shy, it’s unashamed

your love is proud

to be seen with me

You don’t give your heart in pieces

you don’t hide your love to tease us

uncontrolled, uncontained

your love is a fire

burning bright for me

its not a spark

it’s not just a flame

your love is a light

That all the world to see

You don’t give your heart in pieces

you don’t hide your love to tease us

Your love is not fractured

its not a trouble mind

it isn’t anxious

it’s not the restless kind

your love not passive

it’s never disengaged

it’s always present

it hangs on every word we say .

love keeps its promises

it keeps its word

it honours what’s scared

cause it’s vows are good

Your love’s not broken

it’s not insecure our love’s not selfish your love is pure.

( song Pieces by Bethel music )

News in the village

In these times we can feel lonely and have no one to talk to.

As you walk round the village and notice empty spaces and empty benches or may be sitting alone at home isolated with no one to talk to.

We can get caught up with fear and lack of hope.

But God asks us to be courageous and know that we are not alone since he, our Lord our God is always with you.

Deuteronomy 31 v 6

Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me: for I am desolate and afflicted  Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and distressed .

Psalm 25 v16
