Let Me Count the Ways to Write About Love

by Julie Lavender @JLavenderWrites

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways …. 

February is the month of all-things love. If you’re looking for a new writing idea, say, for a blog post or newsletter, essay or short story, or future, I think you’ll LOVE some of the ideas below. 

The Word

For obvious love-inspired ideas, look no further than the One who first loved us. Pick one of these verses as the focal point of your writing and write a devotion that points to the Heavenly Father. 

* John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

* Romans 5:8 – But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

* 1 John 3:1 – See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God, and so we are. 

* 1 John 4:16 – So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 

* 1 John 4:19 – We love because he first loved us.

* Zephaniah 3:17 – The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
