The Essence of God

This morning, i renewed the listing for my yellow key chain on my Etsy shop. As i looked at the picture of this key chain, i felt like i'd just gotten a good morning hug from God.

God's love is so astounding that words could never do it justice & it could never by measured. The #1 reason why each of us were born is because God loves us. We were all created by Him to love & be loved. The very essence of God is love.

I find it so sad though, that some people can't grasp the reality of God's love & all that it has to offer. Some people just don't believe in something they can not see. They haven't recognized the experiences of what God can do. Therefore, they don't embrace God's love which would allow them to grow in it & truly enjoy it.

Throughout part of my life, i was not in a relationship with God. I am sorry for that. But through His love, He never took me for granted & kept me safe when i was taking Him for granted. I didn't realize that i could truly have hope in my life. And i was definitely unaware that my life could have a genuine purpose & meaning.

Did you realize that throughout the Bible, God tells us all about Himself? But the most important thing that He wants us to know is how tremendously awesome His love is for each & every one of us!

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid, you are all worth more that many sparrows."
Luke 12:6-7 (NIV)

Can you imagine how many hairs there are on your head? Could you count them? God can. How amazing is that!!! He loves us so much that hi even know how many hairs we have on our head!!!

Heavenly Father,
I thank You & praise You for Your love. I ask that you be with each & every one who is uncertain of Your love. Please open their hearts & minds to recognize & experience Your love. Show them how to embrace it, nurture it, & grow in it. In Jesus name, i do give You all the praise & all the glory. Amen.


  1. What an amazing reminder ... Yes, God is always there, even when we're not "walking" with Him. He is ready to accept us and all our faults at any time that we are ready to accept Him. He loves unconditional and He keeps His promises ... and sometimes the unseen is scary, but it's like driving in the fog - you don't always know what's around the next bend, but you keep going anyways. Have a great day!

  2. Thanks for your comments Lori! So VERY true!!! <3 <><
