God's Love

First of all I want to apologize for not posting lately. Things have been really busy in the past 3 weeks and we got way behind in a lot of stuff, but things have slowed down a lot so we should be getting back to normal soon;)

Have you ever stopped and just thought about how much God loves us?
I think we've heard it so much that we just don't really fully grasp how great His love is for us, we just have it stored away in our minds and don't ever take it out and realize just how amazing it is! He demonstrated His powerful love for us by sending His one and only Son to die for us sinners! (Romans 5:8). Christ left his throne in heaven to come and be the last and perfect sacrifice for our sins so that one day we might live with Him him heaven. Isn't that an amazing love?

Psalms 139:17 & 18 says "How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand." Doesn't that just about leave you speechless?! His thoughts of us are more in number than the sand? He has thought about you and more times than can be counted. He doesn't just think about the big famous people, the ones that win Nobel prizes, the ones that become president, or ones that live in mansions or drive fancy cars but He also thinks of you and me and all the other ordinary everyday people and He loves us just as much.

John 13:34 says "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you" How can we possibly love each with love as great as God loves us with? It's impossible for us to but we have to try and try as hard as we can, and we when we fail we just have try again and try even harder.

If there's ever a time when you feel discouraged or worthless just think of all God has done for you and much He loves you. He has thought of you more time than can be counted.

Thank you so much for sharing these thoughts! I am going through Psalms 139 right now and have been greatly blessed by the knowledge of God's love and knowledge of me.

Thanks again for your encouragement!

Thank you for the reminder. It is amazing to realize that God can have countless thoughts about each of his children all at the same time. :)
