Love Bled and Woo’ed and brought me to my knees

Love Carried and Pulled with precious wounded pleas

Love Stood and Fought and won this broken heart

Love Healed and Sealed and tended to my needs

Love Called and Heard my narrow-minded plea’s

Love Awoke and Spoke to the deepest parts of pain

Love Sang and Danced as it wrote and called my name

Love Searched and Found this aimless wandering child

Love Is and Was and always Will be at my side

Love, Yeshua, Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah, Spirit, Guide

Love turns the water into wine, Love turns the tide

Love is the Mountain that draws my gaze

Love is the Answer, Love is the Seek

Love is what’s found when strong gives way to weak

Love is the mirror, reversing sin’s direction

Love reveals the Lamb of God‘s Perfection

Love is set upon my head like a crown

Love is the call…Lay down! Lay down!

Love is not callous and it hears the wounds of anger

Love stands tall in the battle fraught with danger

Love is the unseeable, relentless calm

Love is an elixir, Love is a balm

Love is the Catalyst of breaking that which it finds as hard

Love is the softening soul, the gentle hand of unblinding

Love is the awakening from the sleep that sought to steal

Love is the melody in the harmony that heals

Love is the relentless Lover

Love is the Unfathomable drive

Love will not stop – until it has His Bride

Love is the aching tender spot that reaches out for more

Love is the sweet surrender

Love is made complete in defeat

Love is found in the rending of loss

Love is all that’s left in the hands of weary

Love pushes all things through to their witless end

Love bends down and picks me up again

Love is the hands and feet that feed the hungry

Love looks beyond the mortal body and feeds the soul

Love is the liquid that quenches the thirst eternal

Love is the blood that’s thick enough to coat the unforgivable

Love is the bread, kneaded and pounded, rising up again

Love is the shape and form of an image-bearers’ likeness

Love is the internal tick of the motions of a time-frozen chat

Love is hidden and found, seen and unseen, heard and soundless breath

Love draws the attention of even the vilest, wrathful gaze

Love is a provisionary, probative, provocative, patient – Perceiver

Love is the startled awakening shake to the dreary dreamer

Love is the hope in the heartbreaking howl – undone

Love is the sight – first and last – in Kingdom come

Love is the beginning, Love is the end

Love is the binding tie between

Love is like a line drawn out without end

Love – to try to define it…is like reaching for a tide long ago washed up on a shore that sits at the bottom of the Sea

I could keep writing – trying to bring a conclusion to what Love is…but that’s just it…Love…just…is…was…and ever shall be…everything!
