The Love of God
See what great love the father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
1 John 3:1
I’m overwhelmed with feeling God’s love today and want to share my thoughts and feelings with all who are interested in reading. God’s love is so good, my heart is exploding feeling it. I wish I could find the right words to describe it, but none seem to fit the glory of His great love.
I use to wonder what falling in love with God meant, or what it should feel like. I never had been in love, so all I knew it looked like was a scene from the latest romantic comedy in the movies. Recently experiencing the closest thing to falling in love and heartbreak, I learned that not every romance ends with happily ever after. Which is what is so wonderful about God’s love, its not a human love, it is not flawed, it has no selfish intent, He’s not in it for any selfish gain. He loves us because He is love himself. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”-John 3:16.
I rejoice every morning for God’s love, because I am reminded that I am healed and capable of sleeping. He saved me from the torment of fear and insomnia, you can read my testimony here. This overwhelms me with joy and faith for healing for others. Miracles are real and God is a good good father. There are so many reasons to love Him, He is everything my heart desires, and I am satisfied.
Don’t get me wrong, I still want to fall in love with a man and get married, but I feel so fortunate for this time that I have with God and God alone. My emotions are not competing with another to love. All my attention, all my focus is devoted to my God and the love that I have for Him.
How did I get to the point of feeling this overwhelming love? Well it was a journey, and it took seeking, knocking, and asking. I don’t believe that God orchestrates troubles to bring us closer to Him, but I do believe He uses EVERYTHING for good. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”-Romans 8:28. In my darkest moments of sleeplessness and desperation, I cried out to God for help. No He didn’t answer with a roaring voice, nor did He magically help me fall back asleep, but what He did do is direct me to truth about Him, about the reality of miracles; healing, deliverance, and peace that is beyond all understanding. And through all of this I received my healing, and with it all the blessings I could ask for from my heavenly father.
I hope this brings some encouragement to those reading, especially any single ladies in waiting… enjoy this time with your creator, the provider of all good things. He is wonderful, take the time to get to know Him :)
