I've been having a lot of fun posting this series. Thanks to all who came by and read and shared their insights. I love me some feedback!
Today's post contain some of my very favorite scriptures of all.
If you're like me, you probably struggle from time to time with feelings of being unloveable. After all, we know ourselves better than anyone, and we know how imperfect we are.
A couple of years ago, I ran across this verse and it struck a chord with me:
Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies. Psalm 36:5
Think about it: when the astronauts went to the moon, did they report seeing the gates of heaven? In fact, has any space travel by man or telescope revealed where heaven is? Heaven is beyond thousands upon thousands of miles into space, perhaps billions upon billions, and God's love fills up all that space.
His love is enough to cover each and every one of us. It's big enough to totally surround us, to soak us through and through,
I've always heard if God tells you something twice, it is of special significance. This concept must be important to God because it is repeated two more times, almost word for word:
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 57:10
For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 108:4
Are you feeling loved yet?
Another scripture made a great impact on me:
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
Lavished means He went above and beyond the norm, totally pouring it over us, soaking us in His love.
The next time you feel you have tested God's limits by messing up one time too many, remember His love is more than enough. He has enough love to handle our childishness, our errors, our foolish ways. He's not waiting for you to be perfect, He loves you right now, just as you are.
His love is enough!
