And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ~Ephesians 3:17-19
I have been thinking about love a lot lately. I am engaged and getting married and am very much in love. But I can’t help but notice how overwhelmingly present the love of God is in my life! His love is amazing. We are so loved. To think about how good it feels to be loved by another human, and then think about how much more Christ loves me is overwhelming. It’s indescribable really.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
I’m so blessed to be where I am in my life right now. Even though this is the busiest and most demanding season of my life yet, I can’t help but appreciate all that is happening around me.
I am loved.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Today, just think about how loved you are. Realize that no matter how bleak your situation may be today, or whether or not you actually feel like you are loved…the truth is that you are. Christ loves you more than you could even comprehend. And his love is eternally at capacity; meaning he could not love you any more or any less than he does right at this very moment! That’s a neat thought. Even though we fail him, mock, and betray him, he loves us. Forever he loves us.
Think about how loved you really are today.
It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
