How Do You Explain God’s Love

IMG_0687ocean

Could we with ink the ocean fill

And were the skies of parchment made

Were every stalk on earth a quill

And every man a scribe by trade

To write the love of God above

Would drain the ocean dry

Nor could the scroll contain the whole

Though stretched from sky to sky

O Love of God, how rich and pure

How marvelous and strong

It shall forever more endure

The saints and angels song

How Do You Explain Love

100_4525lilyred

How do you explain Love
to someone
who’s never known
nor seen it?

How do you explain Love
to thirsty
hearts bent to
receive it?

How do you explain love
to seekers
giving all
to find it?

“This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins”—1 John 4:10 NLB

“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart”—Jeremiah 29:13 NASB

“No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him”—John 1:18 NAS

Praying It Through

yellowrose.jpg

“Grandma, did you know you leave footprints every where you walk?” I looked down at the freshly vacuumed sand colored carpet in Hanna’s bedroom. My granddaughter’s words gripped my heart. She was watching my every move, even the footprints I left behind.

I thought of my grandmother. My greatest childhood memories are wrapped in the love and joy I felt when I went to her house. I was always greeted with a warm smile and big hug. Grandma’s laughter was contagious, her love unconditional. She was always there for me—to listen, pray and encourage. No wonder I loved going to her house.

Grandma often talked about “praying it through”.

One example is the way she dealt with the fear of flying when given the opportunity to fly to Israel. The overnight drive from South Alabama to New York City was her testing ground. Would she be able to get on that plane and trust the Lord to get her safely there and back?

She wasn’t quite sure. When the family stopped for breakfast the next morning, Grandma told them, “Enjoy your breakfast”. She wouldn’t eat. She had to pray this thing through. An hour later Grandma’s family found her with a big smile on her face. Her fears were gone, replaced by the peace that passes understanding. She was ready to fly.

My grandmother left a rich legacy of strong faith in God, fueled by her passion to pray through life’s challenges. Now it’s my time.

“Tell your children about it in the years to come, and let your children tell their children. Pass the story down from generation to generation”—Joel 1:3

You’re Not Alone

100_2057,jpg.walkwithme

Lay to rest ghosts’ lying shadows,

Put them away where they belong.

Embrace Truth of timeless ages,

God is Love and on His Throne.

 

Lay to rest life’s dis-appointments,

Put them away where they belong.

Embrace Love’s Divine appointments,

Walk with Me, you’re not alone.

A Song In The Night

100_2836.jpg.rosesong

Where is God my maker who gives songs in the night?
Job 35:10

I’d rather be in the valley of trials
with Jesus
than on the mountaintop
without Him.

He gives a song—
even when I can’t sing it.
He’s there,
watching
caring
singing over me—
And I’m held by strong chords
of God’s love.

Then when my spirit and soul
are renewed,
I pick up His song—
And sing it back to Him.
