God’s love

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for our brethren

I John 3:16

Some days God’s love just bubbles over in my soul. And the joy flows out in tears of gratitude. My life is more wonderful today than I could ever have imagined. His love is not cryptic. Not something you have to figure out. It feels just like love. It feels just like kindness. It feels just like the greatest being we can never understand has our backs in ways we can never understand. But we feel covered. We feel light. We feel like we’re floating and we don’t know why.

Circumstances haven’t changed.

Sometimes they’re downright drastic.

Sometimes they seem unconquerable

And yet

God’s love

God’s love gives us a feeling of victory in spite of the battle

God’s love gives us a sense of security in spite of the imbalance

God’s love gives us a knowing of completion in spite of the incompleteness

God’s love
