We've recently celebrated Father's Day to honor our earthly fathers. It's good to honor them. Many of us have had happy experiences with a loving father. Unfortunately, for some, that is not the case. The good news is our heavenly Father loves us with a perfect love, no matter what our experience has been with an earthly father. His love surpasses that of even the most loving earthly father.
At a time when I was trying to comprehend God's love, its tranforming and transcending power, I wrote this poem.
Love is the link
The binding force
Transcending the physical
Even life and death
Binding man to man
And God to man
Elevating man to the highest and noblest of human experiences
Nourishing the soul
Extending beyond the flesh and this world
Allowing man but a glimpse
Of the glory which shall be revealed
"For God is love" (1 John 4:8).
Words can't express it. The apostle Paul wanted us to understand God's great love. He wrote, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom. 8:38-39).
Let's consider God's love for us today and pray He reveals to us how much He loves us.
