Love Overcomes

Love, like a river, will cut a new path when it meets an obstacle. (Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 19th century English poet)

If you watch a swift-flowing river over the years, you can see how it has cut away the banks and even the rocks and stones that it encounters. What a forceful power flowing water can be. Browning’s observation reminds us of the power that fervent love can demonstrate, breaking down resistance and often creating new, lasting relationships.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart (Proverbs 3:3).
