What kind of love is this? The One most- high, the one- most pure, reached down to the lowest most sinful to make him new. The Creator chose to become part of the Creation. He chose to die to pay the price of sin so we could taste the beauty of His presence. Eternity will allow the redeemed to discover the marvel of such wondrously, deep love.
A love so deep; the deepest ocean is like a puddle when compared.
A love so wide, the universe cannot have room to spare.
A joy that’s description has never known words to fully teach;
That eon of times ahead and past cannot its limit reach.
A heart so big; a plan so marvelous and grand,
That no mortal ever was, is, or is to be, fully understands.
What is man, that God would place upon him the gift of His love?
Why would He look upon him with such favor from above?
So grand; He planned to make sinful man as clean as His own Son.
And desires to join them forever with Him as one.
It’s almost too much for minds to comprehend;
The fact He also calls to be His friend.
A love so wondrous; He allows man to be of it all a part.
Even grander, He decided to reside within their hearts.
Such a marvel to try to understand
But the wise offer their life to become all He has planned.
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an
everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
I wonder how I handled life without God’s help. I now know I do not carry life’s burdens all by myself. Whatever I face God is on my side and He is always as close as a prayer. He is my strength and a very present help in time of trouble.
Handled With God
Climbing a mountain or riding waves hard and high;
That both takes great effort cannot be denied.
In your life both are true;
But the secret to success is who is traveling with you.
With God’s strength, faith, and peace reigning within;
The journey goes much better with Him.
The mountain of circumstances; with the walls of depression and fear,
With faith in God’s help the mountain may just disappear.
Those terrible waves of life; with things seemingly out of control,
With its turmoil and chaos that overtakes the soul;
All are handled with more grace with God at your side.
In fact upon His Word you can safely ride.
Then when the storms rage and you seek God’s face,
When He says “Peace be still” the raging’s threat is erased..
Do your best in any situation. Rejoice you do not travel life alone.
Trust your God and Savior to safely bring you home.
And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
