Food for thought…God’s perfect love


Written by my friend Courtney:

I love the sound of water as it washes over rocks. We stumbled upon this beautiful view on our way to the middle of nowhere in Maine,…literally :0 There it was to our right as we were driving. I asked to stop and see it and my friends were kind to oblige me. There is just this massive sense of power and awe that rises up in me when I hear running water. I remember when I finally saw video footage of the tsunami in Asia. The utter devastation and raw power of the water to level, carry and literally uproot whatever stood in it’s way was astounding to me. Gods love for us is a lot like water. It fills every space inside us. It seeks to saturate whatever it touches. God’s love for you and me goes beyond our ability to grasp. If I could only know and understand just how much He is for me I know that then the doubts that taunt me would fall from my heart and mind with a fresh glimpse of

Christ’s overwhelming Love. Song of Songs 8:7 “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.” There isn’t any physical thing that can separate you from the Love of God. He’s devoted. Delighted. Determined to have you for His own! So, Lord, we pray right now that you would reign supreme. Teach us your love. Help us to live your love. Help us to remember that to truly love means,sometimes…speaking the truth that no one wants to hear.
