How Deep the Father’s Love
I do trust God.
Do I doubt? Yes. Does my faith waver? At times. Does discouragement darken my soul? More than I’d like it to. Do I question? I have lots of questions.
But I do trust Him.
When I think about how much God loves me, how great His love for me is, when I let my mind settle on how madly in love God is with me and how much He desires relationship and fellowship with me, how deep His goodness runs and overflows and envelops me, how can I not trust Him?
I love my children, boy do I love them. Sometimes my heart actually aches with love. I love being with them, laughing with them, eating with them, talking with them, watching them grow and explore this world. I delight in their very presence and want nothing but good for them.
Now, if I can love my kids that way, me, imperfect as I am, how much more does God love me, how much does His heart ache with love for me?
Thinking about that, realizing that, meditating on that . . . how can I not trust Him?
Catching even a glimpse of God’s love for me, I feel completely secure in His hands.
. . . I also feel completely humbled that the Most High, the Almighty, the Sovereign Ruler, the Creator, would love me so perfectly, so deeply, so passionately. He loves me. Me!
Think about that today.
