The Love of God

Something seemed to be very wrong with this when I posted it earlier, it was crashing my Outlook and Feedly, so I thought I’d try again.  I think it was the picture, so that’s all that’s changed.  Apologies for duplication or problems!  Maybe its a sign 🙂

I haven’t blogged for a while.

Life and it’s reality has rather got in the way.  I am having to absolutely evaluate my priorities, perhaps listen again to what God is calling me to where I am now.  I’m not sure I’ve reached any conclusions.  If anyone has any bright ideas, I’m happy to listen.

But today I read this:

May you experience God’s
   vast, infinite, indestructible, expansive love,
   that has been yours all along.
May you discover this love is as wide as the sky,
and as small as the cracks in your heart
   that no-one else knows about,
and may you know deep in your bones
   that you are welcome, invited and loved. Amen.

Brian Anderson, Down District Superintendent

It’s the prayer of the day from the Methodist Prayer  Handbook, so I must have read it eight times before!  But today it hit me right between the eyes.

God’s love – as wide as the sky
and as small as the cracks in your heart
that no one else knows about

That’s the kind of love I need.

Which I suppose, as ever, brings me to:

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

I only have a flickering torch, and there is plenty of rain – but the rainbow, the promise, the love is there.  Thanks God
