Can you believe November is right around the corner? Doesn’t it look like October spent a just a week with us? What did you do in October? Can you remember? How are you doing? This month is a great time to reflect on the past almost ten months and take stock. It is so easy to get lost in the busyness of life; to take our eyes off the Lord, without being aware of it. It is easy to be overwhelmed and consumed with the problems and difficulties that life sends our way. Sometimes it’s hard to understand the love of God; to accept the way He does what He does and acknowledge that His love for us is perfect and complete.
Yesterday, I read about the unexpected death of singer, Toby Mac’s son. On His Instagram post, he wrote these words, “we don’t follow God because we have some sort of under-the-table deal with Him, like we’ll follow you, if you bless us.” He continues with this, “we follow God because we love Him. It’s our honor”. This came less than two days after the death of his son. Wow! Such faith! I was inspired to pray for his wife, because I could not imagine the pain, this mama is experiencing right now.
During times of pain and distress, we need to remind ourselves that we are infinitely loved. My Great and wonderful God loves. He loves you, friends, with an unconditional and unwavering love. He loves you more than you can ever imagine. His love for you is beyond simple imagination. His thoughts about you far exceed anything conceivable. You can rely and depend on His love. You can rest assured that His plan for your life, has at its roots; it’s very foundation is based on His love. Psalm 139 is a great reminder of His love for us. Go ahead, read it for yourself, we have time! Here are few other places in scriptures, that tell of God’s love for us.
Life isn’t easy, and undeniably, we will all go through difficulties, but as Babbie Mason says in the chorus of her song, Trust His Heart’
God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When you don’t see His plan
When you can’t trace His hand
Trust His Heart
