At every moment God’s love is present with us. There are times when we may feel that presence so powerfully that our expression of that love overflows to others, and at other times, we may feel another’s expression of love touch us. And yet sometimes it may seem difficult to feel that love.
During those times, the Bible’s guidance is such a powerful help. “God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (I John 4:16). As we learn to dwell in that love—to keep our thoughts filled with Love—we cannot help feeling Love’s powerful embrace. It may take persistence, but the blessings are enormous.
When my husband and I were first married, it seemed that his family had some questions about his choice of a wife, one of which was my religion, Christian Science. I knew that talking about it wouldn’t really help, but living it was of prime importance. My husband’s father had been killed during World War II, leaving his young wife with four children to raise. Because of this tragedy, my mother-in-law lost her faith in God and decided that the family would no longer attend church. She was a very strong woman and seemed to put up a shield, which is understandable.
