Goodnight to the Day
“Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.” William Goldman The Princess Bride
We hear the words, GOD IS LOVE... but do we accept it with an open heart and hands? Aren't most of us wanting acceptance and love? Do you believe it? What could you do on a universe of beaches all filled with God's love? His love is overpowering. His love is amazing. His love is forever.
ALL WE NEED IS LOVE:
God's love is steadfast and unchanging.
We can trust in God's love.
We can rest in God's love.
God's love is revealed to us through Jesus Christ
Our salvation is an expression of God's Love.
God's love is poured into us through the Holy Spirit
Our ability to love is enabled through God's love.
God's love compels us to love one another.
We can have confidence in God's love.
We need to remind ourselves daily, and throughout the day and evening, that God is pure and total Love. So often we doubt the love of God because of experiences in our lives. Broken relationships, hurts from others that we thought loved us, some of our own bad choices in life... all can leave us with a negative feeling of being unworthy of love... human or God's.
I am more of a tree mountain water girl... but I have to say, standing on the beach watching the sun rise or sun set, depending on Atlantic or Pacific, the pure power of God can be seen and felt in the rise and fall of the ocean... and in the majesty of the colors in the sky. It is here you can actually feel his presence of power and love.
"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." Zephaniah 3:17
