Is Love Stranger Than Fiction?

Is Love Stranger Than Fiction?

I don’t believe in Cupid’s arrows –
Trusting in myths isn’t too smart;
But I believe that someone special
Has gently but firmly touched my heart.

I don’t believe in love at first sight –
I know true love takes time;
I do believe when God’s timing is right,
Two separate lives can make one rhyme.

I don’t believe that love is blind –
It’s only God’s truth that makes us see;
With eyes wide open, we’re bound to find
True love was made for eternity.

I don’t believe that loves comes easy –
True love requires the greatest sacrifice;
But when God’s Spirit sheds His love in our hearts,
Love is worth more than any price.

Set me as a seal on your heart,
For love is stronger than the bonds of death;
Like a flaming fire, it sets two lives ablaze;
True love can give meaning to every breath.

Many waters cannot quench love;
Even raging floods cannot drown it away;
For when our lives are transformed by God’s touch,
I know this treasure is here to stay.

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it:
if a man would give all the substance of his house for love,
it would utterly be contemned.
Song of Solomon 8:6-7

And hope maketh not ashamed;
because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts
by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Romans 5:5
