God is always thinking about me, He always does.
I had a teenage crush during school days. I felt happy whenever I saw him. He was my crush until college. I always thought of him, imagining.
The same thing when I had a boyfriend, now my husband. I would think of him even before I go to sleep. I am so in love with my husband that I could not wait to wake up so I can talk to him.
I never thought that the feeling I had with my crush and my husband will surpass the love of God. There is a God that is more in love with me. Wherever I go or whatever I do, he thinks of me. Even when I go to sleep, he still thinks of me. “God is in love with me”
As a Mother, when you put your baby to sleep, in the morning you can’t wait for your baby to wake up because you are excited to see your baby’s eye, you want to give what you have prepared for the baby either meal or take her/him for a bath, you want to cuddle and you’re excited to play together.
The same thing with God, as his child, when I woke up he is excited to see me, to hear my voice praising him. To thank him, to worship him. He is excited to show me what he had prepared for the day. He is excited to show me the people whom I will meet, and what he will teach me for the day. He is excited to be with me each day.
When you love a person, you will think of ways not to offend him/her. You will not do the things that will upset him/her.
The same way how you express your love to God. If you know God, you will not offend the God who is in love with you right?
I can’t escape God’s knowledge of me. Nor even from his presence. Even his power and sovereignty. Even the darkness will not be dark to him. And when I woke up, I am still with him, even I don’t know what happened while I was sleeping.
What interests me is that all the days ordained for me were written in his book before one of them came to be (Psalm 139:16). So those people I met, failures and success in my life and those will happen he is aware of it (wow).
Every time I tell my husband I love you, he will ask me how much? So I will answer him so much or 100% or this much or that’s why I married you.
But when I ask God…. Lord how much you love me? He answered me like this, I love you so much that I gave you my one and only son to save you (John 3:16). Then God shows me how wide and long and high and deep is his love to me (Ephesians 3:18) and this love surpasses knowledge (Ephesians 3:19).
God’s love to me is wide – when I went hiking, and I was able to be on top of the mountain overlooking the marvelous creation of God. I can see it only as far as my eyes reached. But God’s love is wide, so wide that reaches beyond. Even in it he widely loves me.
God’s love to me is long - You know when you wait for a husband or to graduate from school or your kids to grow old you will say it’s too long. But God’s love is long. He waited for me even it takes longer. Even in a great distance from heaven to earth, that’s is not long for him.
God’s love to me is deep – I cannot imagine how deep the ocean, what kinds of living creature there is. And even the core of the earth so is the love of God to me, it’s at the core of his heart.
God’s love to me is high – high that reaches the galaxy the entire universe and beyond.
When you were separated from a relationship after long years of togetherness because it won’t work out anymore or you have fallen out of love, you got broken hearted. Sometimes it’s hard to move on. All the promises were gone. Separation sometimes the hardest at the first time.
So I ask God, are you also going to separate from me? And his answer, my child, neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate my love to you, that is in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:38-39).
What else can I ask for? I am a child of God and no one can separate me from the love of Christ. Wherever I go, whatever I do, whoever will be against me or however I will answer, whenever I will take action… God knows it. There is no place on this earth I can hide from him. Why do I need to be bothered with this world? I have a God that loves me regardless of who I am. If he will take me today, he loves me. If he extends my life, he loves me. If he gives me challenges, he loves me. If he allows things to happen, he loves me. That’s how He is in Love with me.
My Father in Heaven, who created the heaven and earth, I give my gratitude and thank you for loving me that much. Because of you I learned how to forgive and appreciate life. Because of you, I have peace in my heart. Because of you, I discover the purpose of my life. Because of you, I am free.
"Thank the Lord! Praise his name! Tell the world about His wondrous love. How mighty He is!" Isaiah 12:4
