It is a day when the world celebrates love. We went to get groceries this morning and I can't even tell you how many men I saw walking out with big, beautiful bouquets of flowers and chocolates to give to the ones they love. Which is so sweet.
But as love amongst one another is celebrated, something that often goes overlooked is the most important and strongest source of love in existence! God's love for us should be celebrated more than anything. Without him, there would be no love at all, because He is love.
God loves us immensely more than anyone else ever could and that love for us never dies or fades or leaves us. This verse so beautifully reminds me of how much we rely on God's love for us, and how much I know I do each day. It is so humbling to stop and think of how much we need God's love, where we would be without it, and how gifted we are to be personally known and loved by the Creator of the universe!
In thinking about this, I ponder on the amazing thousands and thousands of ways God's shows His love for us... through our family members' love, our friends, those who He placed in our lives to love and encourage us, the blessings in each day, the way He allows things to fall into place in His plan for us, the way He is working in our lives right now, and even through meadows, sunsets, the animals, waterfalls, mountains, the glorious sceneries that He loves us through in that He allows us to enjoy all of the beauty He created. Each and every blessing that we think to be small or simple is God's expression of love.
God's incredible love for us is greater than we are ever capable of imagining, the deepest love there is. How honored we are to be able to rely on His love and live each day to see the way He shows us how much He loves us.
Have a great weekend!!
