#LoveIs God

Dear February, it's your first Sunday this year.

The first Sunday since we started the #LoveIs and #LoveIsNot campaign.

Well, since nobody else has gone spiritual with this, that unenviable task falls to me.

Unenviable, not because talking about God is not “cool”, but because I have to present what I believe is true without looking cliché.

Thankfully, though, if my pastor is right, I won't be writing this alone, in fact, I won't be writing this at all.

I'll just be a pencil(a digital one, anyway) in the hand of the First Writer, the one whose words framed the either Universe (or Multiverse if you're a Sci-Fi kinda guy).

Now, you may or may not believe in God. That's fine. This isn't a theological or doctrinal debate. Those arguments are mostly stupid anyway (Some people think saying “I'm right, you will rot in hell if you don't believe me” is how you win an argument😒).

I'm talking about Love. The most powerful force in this world.

Strong enough to block the Killing Curse (Harry Potter fans🙌), drag Wally West from the Speed Force(Flash🏃) and save us all from Death(Real Life😉).

We don't even have to get too spiritual to see just how powerful Love is.

Ever watched one of those “Act of Kindness” videos where a man does something nice for a kid and the butterfly effect eventually makes it so his good deed gets back to him?

Or have you ever had a kind word spoken to you?

It always has some Godly effect, right?

This reminds me of a poem I heard in JSS1. It was written in 1845 by Julia Carney. It goes:

Little drops of water,
little grains of sand,
make the mighty ocean
and the beauteous land.

And the little moments,
humble though they may be,
make the mighty ages
of eternity.

Little deeds of kindness,
little words of love,
make our earth an Eden,
like the heaven above.
