I Am In Awe! ~ May 23

I Am In Awe!

I saw this brilliant light, my life flashed before my eyes! (Actually, I had to call for a re-run.)

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.  Psalm 63:3

Nothing can equal the love of God. We can have everything this world has to offer, and still we will have nothing if we do not have God’s love in our hearts. I’ve been there.

Yes, I have been in that place where I thought if I could just make a little more money, have a nicer car and home, then I’d be happy. But after I had a better job, more money, a nicer car, and a bigger house, I still wasn’t happy. And so I strived to make even more money and have more things—better things. Still…. it never seemed enough.

But one day, I started loving God. I don’t have a fabulous salvation story to share with you; it just seemed to happen. No, not overnight, not in a sudden flash of insight or faith, and not due to some horrific accident, illness, or life-changing event. I’d known God all my life; I just hadn’t realized how much He loved me. When that one fact started to slowly sink in, I began to change. And I continue to change almost daily.

As I write this encouragement, I realize I am the clay, and God is shaping me into a form that will be of use to Him. I am in awe of His love for me, and with my words which pour onto these pages, I glorify Him. His love overwhelms me.

    I choked up reading this one!! Beautiful, sweetheart! Everyone around the breakfast table was touched as well. I’m missing you terribly and can’t wait to see you soon.
