Random Thoughts About 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 them onto me freely. 

He will withhold no good thing from me. At times I haven’t had much, yet I’ve never been in lack.

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 her baby’s hunger, so does the Lord know just what I need. 

And whenever I feel down in my spirit, He sees me from up High and He stoops down low and scoops me up in His arms.

And it is there in His arms where He encourages me. And it is there in His presence 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, mercy, and 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 am ignorant of many things.

How wonderful it is to have the assurance that I can do all things through Him! His love for me is so great, that I don’t suppose I’ll ever be able to comprehend it.

But I’ll gladly accept it and I’ll praise Him for it. I do hope that He delights in me as I very much delight in Him.

Sometimes, it’s hard to take in—but it’s a wonderful and an amazing thing to realize this: that the God of all creation, Who spoke light into existence and gave the sea its boundaries,

Who paints the sky each day and tells the wind which direction to go, Who strategically placed the sun, the moon, and all the heavenly bodies above the Earth, 

and intricately stitched every 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)
