By Our Love

God has given me such a passion to see the women in my church and community find excitement in getting together to grow in Scripture and encouragement. This song just really fits what I see when I look into our not-to-distant future.

The second verse reads:

Sisters, we were made for kindness We can pierce the darkness as He shines through us... We will come reaching, with a song of healing... And they will know us by our love!

Isn't this so true! Every one of us has something special that allows God's light to shine uniquely through us! I love the imagery of singing a song of healing over the women in my life!

The chorus says:

The time is now; Come Church arise... Love with His hands See with His eyes... Bind it around you, Let it never leave you, And they will know us by our love...

Our church seems to have been in a holding pattern over the last few months. I feel the stirring of God's Spirit. It's starting to rise up to cause a movement, and I am so excited to see what He is going to do!  The time really is now, and I am so excited to be a part of it!

Have a great weekend and stop by and say hi to Amy

this song is so great I believe it is so right we often get overwhelmed with what we do may we always remember why we do what we do because of what he did for us first

Can I just say thank you for posting this song? I never heard it before now and I'm already saving it to my favorites on YouTube. The words are so perfect and I love her voice.

"They will know us by our love."

That is exactly what the Bible says. But is that what the world actually sees in Christians?

I am so encouraged to read your post today. Knowing that young women are studying the Scriptures and drawing closer to the Lord is music to my ears. So many times, I wish that I had drawn closer to Him and walked with Him earlier in my life. I was a bit of a prodigal for years but I came back and now have a hunger for things of God.

Bless you and thank you for the encouragement you provided to me this day.
