{ " His Great Love " }

I have been thinking a lot about love lately. The way we love others, the way others love us. Then most importantly of all, the way God loves us. Do you ever just stop to remember how much God loves His children? No one is ever going to love us as much as He does. He gave His Son for us, that is how much He loves us. That is an incredible amount of love. We can't even fathom that love.

At church yesterday we sang a hymn called, "The Love of God".
It has been one of my favorites for quite some time, and it is a great reminder of the fact that we really can't measure God's love. It is just so unfathomable...

The whole hymn can be found here at Cyber Hymnal.
My favorite verse is the very last verse;

"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."

Some of my favorite verses on God's unfathomable, incredible love are from Psalm 36. 

5) Your lovingkindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 6) Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep. O LORD, You preserve man and beast. 7) How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. ~ Psalm 36:5-7

I hope this short blurb was encouraging to someone today. 

I know it encourages me greatly to be reminded of how much God loves me!
