May these words bring comfort:

The Power of Love
Sammy Hynds Harrison
27 August 2012

At the time of the loss of a loved one, many hearts turn to prayer as they should. However, I would like to think for a moment about the power of love.

Were words left unspoken? You have the opportunity to say those words. Love is a connection between heaven and earth. When we lose a loved one, 2 Corinthians 5:8 reminds us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Their spirit goes to be with the Lord, but their love remains with us.

Their love may return to us in our dreams, when we look at a letter, picture, a personal item that you have in your possession, when you hear a song, see their favorite flower or color in a rainbow, a sunrise or sunset – the list is endless because Love is endless.

Love is the greatest power in the universe. It is more powerful than all of the arsenals of the worlds nations combined. It is more powerful than the rockets that carry men and spaceships into orbit or to another planet. The atomic bomb exploded, destroying and killing all in its path. When Love explodes it draws all of mankind together. It brings smiles and laughter rather than heartache and tears.

The more love is used, the stronger it grows. Love is so strong that in marriage, it turns two people into one. Love is instilled in the hearts of parents for a child before birth. That feeling is too great to be described. You don’t believe it could possibly be stronger until you hold that new life in your arms. That’s when you have a surge of love a thousand times greater than before birth.

Love stops war. In Matthew 5:44, Jesus Christ says, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” If you are busy loving your enemy, you don’t have time nor space for anger and hate.

Love is contagious. Anytime you are close to anyone who is filled with love, you catch it.

Love cannot be hoarded. It loses power if it is not used. Therefore the richest of men or women are the ones full of Love.

If anyone asks you to describe God, ask them to describe “Love” — For God is Love.
