But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ ... (Ephesians 2:4-5)
God's love just amazes me sometimes. everything i know about Him just screams LOVE! sometimes His love is easy to understand and i know i take it for granted. but other times i struggle with how He can love this world - including me. it's my human brain that cannot fathom how great... how far and wide... how endless His love really is.
i consider myself a "love" person. i really try to love at all times. as you can imagine, that's not easy. and i fall short more times than i hit the goal. but i keep on working towards that goal of sharing the love God has given me with those He puts on my path.
Lord, thank you for loving me. thank you for showing me what love is supposed to look like. please continue to help me love even when it's not easy, or pretty, or convenient. i don't ever want to take your love for granted and i acknowledge that i can only love others because you showed me how.
