Thoughts of God

When I think about who I am, in comparison to who He is, it overwhelms me.

I’m so undeserving of His love and kindness, yet He pours these things into me freely.

He’ll withhold no good thing from me. As an earthly father to his child, He knows just what I need before I can even utter the words.

And like a mother senses the hunger of her little baby, without it having to speak a word, so does the Lord know just what I need.

At times, I haven’t had much, but I’ve never been in lack.

And whenever I feel down in my spirit, He sees me from on High, and stoops down low, to scoop me up in His arms. And it’s there,  where He encourages me. And it’s there where I find comfort.

He lets me know that I matter. He assures me that He cares, and reminds me that He will never leave me nor forsake me.

When I think about His goodness, and His mercy and His grace, I can’t help but stand in awe of His perfect love.

Who wouldn’t want to serve a God like this?

He is great, but I am small. He is strong, but I am weak. He is wise, yet I stand in ignorance of many things. How wonderful it is,  to have the assurance, that I can accomplish all things through Him!

His love for me is so great, that I don’t suppose I will ever be able to fully comprehend it. But I’ll gladly accept it, and praise Him for it.

I so pray that He delights in me, as I very much delight in Him.

Sometimes, it’s all so very hard to take in. Yet it’s a wonderful, and an amazing thing, to realize, that the God of all creation,

Who spoke light into existence and gave the sea its boundaries, Who beautifully paints the sky each day and tells the wind which direction to go,

Who strategically placed the sun and all the heavenly bodies above the Earth,

and perfectly stitched together, the intricately woven leaf of the tree….

…loves me.

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?”(Psalms 8.4 KJV)

  1. I love how humble you are and how great you recognize that God is! It always amazes me, too, that the Creator of the Universe thought the world needed one of me.
