Dose of Hope: Loved

God's Word straight up says we are loved more than we can comprehend. {praylivecreate.com} #scripture #Bible #quotes

It might sound like we’ve heard this before, but bear with me for a second. When it comes to talking about how much God loves us, do we really let it sink in? I’ll be the first to admit in this space that as I inch into my 32nd year of living, I’m just starting to believe it as fully as I wish I would have for every second of my life up to this point. And I know I still have a long way to go.

As Scripture straight up says, I don’t even know if I’m able to comprehend. But letting it sink deep into our hearts and souls and skin and bones is definitely the best thing we could ever do for ourselves. We are chosen. We belong. And we’re loved with an everlasting love.

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. – Ephesians 3:18-19 (NLT)

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)

Long ago the Lord said to Israel:
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
    With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself. – Jeremiah 31:3 (NLT)

  1. Love this post + the message within it. I’ve been really struggling with fully turning things over to God lately. I remind myself 100x a day to turn it over to him + rely on His understand/plan, not my own. I think one of the issues with this is that it’s hard to accept how loved we are by Him. Thank you for the beautiful reminder ❤

    1. I hear you! I think the reason He has to say it so often is that it’s so hard for us to comprehend. We see this broken world falling apart all around us, and it’s so easy to take our eyes off of the big picture and remember that God loved us so much that He sacrificed Himself so that all of us could inherit a better future with Him. It’s mind blowing and I have a hard time reaaally accepting it, too!
