gaze-on-jesus:

Nothing is more necessary than finding God and falling in love and deeper into Him. Love decides. Love decides everything. What you are in love with decides what you live for. Fall in love with the One who fills your lungs with this breath and all these people and this sky and all this light, all this glorious light. You have to fall in love because this will get you up and keep you going every day.

Ann Voskamp

God is Love. Thus at the root of all being is the very essence of God: Love. To fall in love with God is to be united with Him. To be embraced by Him. To be in Him.

We can rise before the dawning. We can kneel to the lowest of levels. We can even hold the hand of one dying. Yet without Love we will give nothing. We will sacrifice nothing. And we will not receive a blessing from God. Our actions will be found wanting.
