Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.
- Song of Songs 8:7 (NIV)
King Solomon wrote the above scripture. He is reputed as being the wisest king. Although, with 700 wives and 300 concubines, I think out loud, “Somebody should have schooled that man.”
Be that as it may, Solomon loved much, and was reconciled to, for, and by God’s love.
Love is many things.
Love is impenetrable. It withstands gale winds, white squalls, and turbulent storms. It survives.
Love is unshakable. It’s not defeated by time, distance, nor space. Even in separation, it survives.
Love is priceless. It establishes its own patina, its worth beyond our understanding, and it survives.
Love’s only competition is death. Yet, it survives.
Love fades, but while it withers and dries, it is being born again. It survives.
My God, how awesome is the power of love – for it can survive all things.
So, on this day, I urge us all to pray for love, that we may learn to love better and use it as a channel to make those around us better themselves.

Grant new mercies and grace on this day of thanksgiving and praise for Love.
For Love that satisfies, please sustain and allow its increase.
For Love that eludes, quiet the restless heart until love makes its way home.
For Love that is lost, let there be no suffering in the midst of pain.
For love that is forsaken, send your Holy Spirit to mend the broken-hearted and wipe away every tear.
And for love that masquerades, and “ain’t love at all”, open eyes, close hearts, move in confidence, evict doubt and shut it all the way down.
May God Bless you and grant the desires of your heart. Happy Valentine’s Day!
