Love is easy, when you are touched.

And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. - Deuteronomy 6:5 (KJV)

Some have wondered how one can feel love for someone who can not be seen. It has also been expressed God doesn't expect us to manufacture loving feelings but to do loving act.

I believe God would not require us to manufacture feelings we don't possess and love is often a choice of action even when it is not felt emotionally, but today I was given a glimpse of how loving feelings arise in our hearts to our unseen Heavenly Father, not out of a effort to feel but a choice to worship.
Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. - Psalm 4:7 (KJV)

God has a gladness that goes beyond natural pleasurable events and experiences. When God touches the heart in such a way that makes it more glad than anything else, loving feelings are an automatic response.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. - Psalm 16:11 (KJV)
When one gets such fullness of joy in God and pleasures, better than anything else can give, loving feelings can not be stopped.

I am open to the possibility that God's command to love Him is actually a command to come to Him and let Him put His gladness into our hearts that will produce the love He desires.
