Somewhere along the line, a bond fractured, or at least twisted into a malfunctioning tangle. You regret it, but cannot seem to fix it. If this sounds achingly familiar to you just now, then take courage for God knows how to help the brokenhearted. Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would come to give "beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness" (Isaiah 61:3, NKJV). God gave Himself to show us an unimaginable kind of love. In 13 Weeks to Love, author and speaker Jennifer Jill Schwirzer shows how to live God's love and how doing so fulfills the purpose for which He created us. God is love and we, as His image bearers, posses the capacity for love. Because love is fundamental to life itself and because it's all we'll really care about in the end, let's care about it now. Let's make it our first study, our science, our song
