THE HEALING FOUNTAIN OF LOVE

ďThy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.Ē

Psalm 36: 5, 7, 9, 10 King James Version

Have you ever seen a fountain that was so beautiful and looked so refreshing that you wanted to get in it? I have been tempted many times to get in a fountain but I knew that it wasnít allowed. O dear friends, we have a healing fountain of love that is not only available for us but it is also permissible for us to get in it. The name of this healing fountain of love is Jesus. He is waiting with a tender heart and with His arms open wide for us to plunge into His healing fountain of love.

Jesus, whose tender heart is our healing fountain of love, is the most beautiful fountain we will ever see. He is dazzling and aglow with colorful lights of sweetness, kindness, honesty, joy, peace, happiness, forgiveness, tenderness, understanding, compassion, unconditional love, and protection and caring. His heart is so full of unconditional love that every person in the world could jump into His fountain and there would still be more room.

Jesus is our healing fountain of love and we are to be like Him in the way we treat one another. The things we say and the things we do should encourage people, not discourage them. We are not perfect and we will never be perfect while we are on this earth but as we allow Jesus to change us into loving people we will have a desire to be kind to people. There will be times when we will fail and we will hurt people just as they fail and hurt us. However, if our hearts are right before God then He will understand when we say and do things that we donít mean to say and do. He will understand that they were said in the heat of an argument and we really didnít mean to be critical, sarcastic and unkind. He will once again encourage us to be more loving and kind. If we will remember that Jesus is loving and kind to us when we hurt Him, I think it will make it easier to be loving and kind to people when they hurt us.

If youíre weary with the hurts and struggles of life and you have heartaches that are weighing you down with discouragement and defeat, I urge you to jump into the healing fountain of love and allow Jesus to refresh you with His healing love, tenderness and understanding.

Thank God for our healing fountain of love, our precious Saviour. He not only saves us from our sins; He saves us from the hurts and heartaches of this life. What a friend we have in Jesus! There is no other friend like Him. No one loves us like Jesus Loves us. Thank You, Jesus for loving us no matter how many times we fail You. You are wonderful and I love You with all of my heart.
