While on vacation at the beach, sitting in the motor home early one the morning, I heard a a nearby camper yell out, "I love you more!" to her family members as they were leaving. It made me smile. My kid's grandma Dianne always said the exact same thing to them at the end of a visit or a phone conversation, "I love you more!"
I began to think about our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ's love for us. It is always more! More than we can imagine. More than we can take in at one time. More than we deserve. More than enough to satisfy our emptiness, loneliness, hurt, anger, addictions, sin and brokenness.
Are you seeking His love each day? Are you spending time in the morning allowing God's love to fill the gaping holes in your life?
Pray and ask for your Savior's help. Ask God to show you His love. Ask Him to help you before the temptations, before the breakdowns, before the anger. Ask Him to help you "put on the whole armor of God." (Ephesians 6:11-17.) He wants to show you how His love will conquer all you're dealing with, whatever it may be...it's not too big for the Creator of the Universe. Start today by seeking to gain a relationship with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Be filled with the overflowing love that He has for you...HE LOVES YOU MORE!!!
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
