Love is a beautiful thing and when we experience it, there's nothing like it! As infants, our first love is usually the bond between our Mother and Father, or guardian. It then may proceed to our siblings, grandparents and extended family. As we grow older, we develop the love of friendships and best friends. Then one day, we may fall in love with that "Special" man, which may lead to that "Big Event."
The wedding vows are exchanged and married life begins... "Oh, the joy of this Special Day! Love just couldn't be any better than this," some may say. Love is truly a beautiful thing to experience, but everyone may not have this scenario. Unfortunately, life has a way of causing us to have different encounters and outcomes that may result in feeling unloved.
Well, today is a new day and I know about a "Special Love" that we can all experience. This love is "indescribable!" This love is too extraordinary for description! This love is so great and extreme! This love is none other than the "Love of God." If you're feeling unloved or just need some love, know that God is here for you.
To be loved is wonderful, but to be loved by God is Magnificent! There's something about the love of God that's just Indescribable, but it's so real! Knowing that Almighty God loves and cares about us is so comforting. His love can lift us up to a positive and peaceful mindset and that's where He wants us to be.
How do I know that God loves us? Well, I have experienced it myself and I personally know, there's none like it! I also know that God loves us because it's found in His Word. In John 3:16, it states, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God loves us so much that he gave His Son! How precious are your children to you? Are you willing to give them up? God's love is not just for now, but His love covers our future, as well! Now that's LOVE!
Human love is great, but sometimes, people can disappoint and not keep their word, but not God! He loves us unconditionally and He will never let us down. In Jeremiah 29:11, it states, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." God loves us so much and His thoughts and plans for us are only good. He wants us to always have victory in every area of our lives. In Romans 8:37, it states, "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us."
This Agape, God-kind of Love, is “Authentic Love” and God wants us to have the confidence in knowing that we are so loved and special to Him. So, today, let the past be the past and start anew! Let’s turn our hearts to God and trust in Him. For God is love and He loves us so much! He is ready for all of us, to experience His Indescribable Love!" Now this is truly the kind of love where we can say, "It can't get any better than this!” Glory to God!
