See what great love...
The tears of course flowed even more, then. I know that I am loved, amazingly enough, by the God of the universe but that night, I experienced the love of my heavenly Father, again, in a way I hadn't for a while.
1 John 1.3 (NLT) says, "See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children..." In the NIV the word 'lavish' is used to describe how God loves us. Lavish means "to expend or give in great amounts or without limit". This is how God loves me. This is how God loves Adira. This is how God loves you!
As I write this, I am reminded that I have been praying that I would experience more of God's love, praying for myself and others Paul's prayer for the Ephesians (Eph 3.14-21). God is answering.
How have you experienced God's love lately?
