Love is Deeper than Religion

Hello Friends!
Today, as I was preparing embellishments for my new items, my heart began to ache for those who do not know the love of Christ.  This love is really indescribable...unfathomable...just beyond our understanding. Yet, is so warm and real. When you take the time to sit at the feet of the Lord, this love wraps around your soul and holds you so tightly. You can imagine staying in this "state" and never returning to your daily do's, don'ts, worries and such.  
That LOVE cannot be contained. 
Feeling something so glorious must be shared.   

This feeling is deeper than your convictions, fears and religious beliefs. It is BIGGER than your thoughts....When you are basking in His Love, you want to share it with others, because you know that they cannot imagine the security and well-being that comes with His love. And, when you feel this love, you know that you are growing in your walk with the Lord. You realize that your religion, politics and values are so very little compared to the Bigness of His love.  You realize that these things are barriers and walls that hold you back from loving others.  Because, truly, who can say that they are walking with Jesus, but hates another person due to his/her different religion, politics or beliefs? Would Jesus hate them? Is that the kind of Jesus we serve? One who hates others? No. That is not what we feel and our souls cry-out when we harbor ignorance in our hearts, so we know that these beliefs are not of Christ, but of us. Let us take more and more time to sit at His feet 
and gather-in His love. 
After all, isn't that what our walk with Him is about...LOVE...? 

Our walk is about Him and and if we keep Him at the forefront of our thoughts, words and deeds, there is no room for ignorance and hate. Your religion, your values, your politics...become more and more insignificant as you continue to walk more often, more closely, more boldly and more openly with Jesus.

Scripture

~ 1 Corinthians 13:13 ~
Now these three remain:

faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
