How Much Greater

There are times when I look at my children and my love swells up within me, overtaking all else. Weariness, frustration, discouragement. Man, I love these little people!

And then I remember my Heavenly Father. And how much more He loves them. Incredible. The affection and love He has for them.

Then I'm reminded that it's how He loves me. Mind blowing. I know I need a deeper revelation of His Love.

Then I see a video like this on
another blog and I'm messed up for the rest of the day. Which is what I want. To be ruined by His love.

How much greater He loves us! Carrying us when we cannot carry ourselves. Giving us His strength when we have nothing to give. Surpassing any earthly father's love and devotion.

Abba Father, I am once again in awe of Your love for Your children. Thank You for loving me and never leaving or forsaking me. Thank You for Your faithfulness and steadfastness even when I do not show the same qualities. Thank You for continuing to give to me when I have not felt that I had anything to give to You. Change my heart and help me, Father, to be a reflection of Your love. To love others with Your perfect love.

Participating in GratiTuesday at Heavenly Homemakers on 11/25 because I am so grateful for His amazing, unending love.

Yes....that video is incredible! I see clearly how much love he has for his son. God loves us even more than that.
Amazing huh?
