Love

March 19, 2012

Today I found myself gazing out my 3rd floor window and witnessed a moment that left me wrecked. ( you might want to read  Live Alive to understand this blog post ) I watched as two young men pulled into the cemetery, both walked toward the plot and once they reached it one very reverently went to one knee and motioned the Father, Son, Holy Spirit cross across his chest. The other young man appeared inconsolable. He barely made it to the plot before he turned around and walked back to the car. His friend realizing that he had retreated to the car hurried his moment along and very calmly walked back to the car.

I assumed that would be it until the guy standing at the car darted back to the plot. When he reached it he collapsed to his knees and wept bitterly. He spoke at the plot for a while, and all I thought was whoever this person was was dearly missed and appeared to  have been very loved.

In that moment I felt the Lord whisper, ” I love you like that. I miss you all the time and I when you walked away I sought after you…I was on my knees for you…”

I  guess the Lord knows I am a visual learner. It’s amazing how time and time again He seeks after the ones He loves. So thankful that He never gave up on me, and that His love and will for me is irrevocable. Seems like the last two weeks have been filled with moments like this – constantly reminding me how loved I am by my creator.

I have been listening to this song by Bethel and the lyrics say that,

How great your love is for me, How Great is your Love…you could love me more in a moment than other lovers could in a lifetime.

How true that is.

Not sure what your walking through or if you feel overwhelmed with life. But find solace today in knowing He is for you and that He loves you that much…

Charise

“But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.” 1 Cor. 13:13 Message

    Just read this and bought tears to my eyes… I actually googled closer by Steffany Frizell because I wanted to use the lyrics for my blog and write about how it correlates to marraige and found this. Thank you for it!
