"God's love pouring into our hearts." When we entrust our lives to Jesus; when we ask Jesus to show us how we can become more like him, our lives change in wonderful ways. That's what the author (unknown) of this Forward Day by Day reflection in June of 2019 is talking about. I thought you would enjoy it.
Blessings, love, and hugs from a safe distance,
John 16:15. All that the Father has is mine.
For this reason I said he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
When I think of the Creator of the universe holding me in in one hand, and pouring love into me with the other hand, everything else seems trivial. Sure, I have bad moments and go through difficult times, but I have God's love actually pouring into my heart. We each have God's love pouring into our hearts, and that provides all the hope we need. This love-fueled hope gives us character founded in love, and gives us strength to endure suffering. In his seminal work, "The Problem of Pain," C.S. Lewis wrote, "We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too), but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest "well pleased."
"Social distancing will not stop love."
