“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have the power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:17-18
There are no words to describe the depths of God’s love for us. His love is more powerful than any of us could every fully know. His love is strong, yet tender. He is the mighty creator of the universe, yet he knows each one of us by name. He wants to walk hand in hand with us through this journey called life. The best way I know to describe His Love is to share how it has impacted my own life.
First, His love saved me.
His love rescued me from a life of loneliness and despair; of heartache and pain. He filled every need and every void with His love.
And then, through His love, He sent me an angel; someone to spend my life with. Someone to walk with me down the ever winding road of life. Yes, just when I was at the peak of despair He sent me the love of my life… my husband.
His love pulled me from a sad place and replaced my mourning with joy.
When the world around me felt utterly hopeless His love gave me peace. His love was the crutch that held me tall when I was broken. His love was the wind I could soar through when I was strong.
As a child His love was a constant reminder of my purpose… the purpose He had in store for me. Growing up He whispered sweet promises into my ear about the many wonderful things He had planned for my life. And as an adult, His love has begun to transform that purpose into reality, empowering me to step forward with boldness as I pursue my dreams.
It’s because of His love that I can call myself a mother and a wife. It’s because of his unfailing love that I can rest knowing regardless of life’s ups and downs and twists and turns I have nothing to fear because He is always with me… He will never leave me nor forsake me… because He loves me.
Want to know the most beautiful part of all?
Even with all this love He gives to me… He is never, ever filled to the max… His love extends to each and every one of us more than we can even fathom.
God loves you.
God created you.
God has a very special and unique plan for your life…
There is nothing any one of us can do or say that would cause Him to love us any more or any less. No matter the mistakes we make in life, God’s love and mercies are new every morning… He is quick to forgive us… all we need to do is ask.
Run to Him in times of trouble. There is no need to fear…
Allow Him to overwhelm you with His love and saturate you with His peace. Release your cares to Him so that you can be free of the burdens and weight of life’s many pressures.
God’s love is real! His love is alive! Let go of your pain and relinquish control of your heart to Him. His love is amazing… His love is more than enough.
His love will fill every crack and every crevice in your life. Open your heart to Him and allow His love to overflow into your every vein! Release the pain, release the worry, release the fears, release the condemnation! Listen as He calls out to you with arms open wide…run into his mighty embrace. He is your father. You are his precious child. Run to Him now and allow Him to “make it all better” which is what I say to my children when they come to me with a boo-boo, “It’s OK… mommy’s here… it’s all better now”. Allow God to speak those sweet words from His heart, the heart of a Father, right into your spirit, “It’s OK, Daddy’s here… everything is going to be OK… I love you.”
Father, we come to you today with outstretched arms as we surrender our lives to you. We thank you for your love. Your unfailing love that covers a multitude of sins. We ask now that you wash us through the blood of Jesus and cleanse us from the filth of this world. Come into our hearts and forgive us our sins. Wrap your loving arms around us as we receive your love today. We claim now that “Jesus is Lord” of our life… we thank you for your mercies and blessings, in Jesus Mighty Name, amen!
Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28 niv)… ah, rest… what a beautiful gift from God… because He loves us.
Have you experienced God’s Love? Maybe you did just now for the first time or the first time in a long time. Please share your experience… I would LOVE to hear from YOU!
