HOW CAN IT BE?

Many of us have sat under years of teaching on the scriptures. Personally I love going deep but depth and knowledge in itself is powerless to change us. We can know all things and yet believe the worst about ourselves and others. In these last months...in the midst of troubles and trials...my thoughts have been consistently brought back to what has been my anchor in such times. My truth is everyone's truth. My truth is the absolute unconditional love my God has for me. I can quickly beat myself up but then I am reminded how God feels about me...His love for me and then my destructive thoughts fall to pieces. I hear the words of Romans 8:38-39 being spoken to me..."For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Who can make sense of such a love, how can it be? I must simply in faith and with trust accept and receive His absolute unconditional love for me. As the words of the song sing out..."His love is deep, His love is wide and it covers us. His love is fierce, His love is strong and it is glorious. His love is sweet, His love is wild." Deep, wide, fierce, strong, wild yet sweet. How can it be?

God is accused of many things by His children. Not understanding His love can certainly take us down many self defeating patterns of thoughts and behaviours. Simply...we are so limited in our capacity to purely understand His love for us. How are we to accept such a love in its fullness? For me...I have settled in my heart that God is God and what God says is always true. If He says it...then so it is. I must agree with Him whether I understand or not. I have made peace with Isaiah 55:9 where God tells me..."For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." In the acceptance of these words I believe in His love for me and I take hope and encouragement in the words He speaks two verses later..."So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
