An Amazing Love

Seattle is wonderful place to experience God’s creation. Within driving distance we have the mountains, the forest, and the ocean to explore.

I live just outside the city, and during my commute home from work, I have the opportunity to drive through the countryside. My path takes me up a steep and winding hill, which is covered by tree limbs extending from both sides, forming an arch across the road. When the sun is shining (and it does shine here) the rays filter through the leaves above.

As I continue on my route home, the view of the mountains come into sight. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such beauty.

Have you ever been in place where the view has been breathtaking? Have you ever taken many photos, hoping to capture all that your eyes are seeing? Only to find that no matter how hard you try, the photos never do justice to what you’ve experienced?

It’s impossible to capture the true essence or grandeur of such places. Photos are one dimensional, while your experience in the moment encompasses all your senses. You can feel the warmth from the sun on your cheek and the refreshing coolness from a light breeze. You can smell the sweet scent of wildflowers and hear the call of a blue jay.

I think it’s similar to experiencing God’s love.

You may have a concept of what you think God’s love is from reading or hearing other people share their thoughts and beliefs.

Your idea of God’s love may look one dimensional, like a photograph placed in a frame and placed on a mantel.

Or you may not believe it exists.

Until we embrace and experience the fullness of God’s love can we understand all that it encompasses.

His love is grander than any mountain, deeper than any ocean, and richer than the earth giving life to a forest.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or not done.
He loves you.
He’s never stopped.
And He never will.

Let God’s love surround and awe you with its beauty.
