They are more than you can count and originate from core truth of who He is- LOVE.
“We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”
1 John 4:16 NLT
After an cool afternoon at the waters edge at the beach this summer, I turned toward the parking lot and prepared to trudge through the expanse of sand between the two. It seemed like a million miles to me because walking through sand is not easy (or enjoyable when your loaded down with all your stuff).
As I walked through the countless grains of sand and felt them give under my feet, I thought of Psalm 139: 17-18:
“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!”
More than you can imagine,
deeper than you can understand,
higher than you can reach,
farther ahead than you can plan,
filled with more love than you think is possible, God is thinking about you.
He knows you.
He knows all your weaknesses, brokenness and faults- and loves you completely.
Put your trust in Jesus and be brave today.
God knows what is going on and how to love you through it.
