That depends on the context and why we may need further clarification. I know that 1 Cor 13 refers to God's love because the word love in 1 Cor 13 is the word ἀγάπη agape which is God's unconditional love.

So we may say "God's love is patient.. God's love is kind". etc.

In 1 Cor 13 for example, it only says love, but that this refers to God's love is known because it uses the word 'agape'.

So Ohio who said "But there is no reference to God's love in this section of I Cor 13" is clearly wrong since it uses the word 'agape'.

Now God's love and God himself are hard to separate. If we could separate them as you are trying to do, then we could say "I experienced God's love but I did not experience God". This is like saying "his arm touched me but he did not touch me". This does not make much sense. And remember the woman who touched Jesus's garment, and Jesus said "who touched Me".
