Overwhelming Love

I have walked with my Savior for the last 37 years of my life. In the process, I have discovered much about His likes and dislikes, His personality and His ways.  But today, as I am overtaken with the holiness of His presence, I feel like I haven’t even begun to know Him.

I have seen Him displayed in the beauty of magnificent trees, the power of the ocean, the kindness of my friends, the giggles of my children.

I have known His touch upon my heart, His joy deep in my gut, His comfort when everything fell apart, and His tangible grace blanketing my very life. Yet the more I walk with Him, the less I seem to comprehend the majesty of who He is.

He surprises me over and over. He loves me to overwhelming.

I never felt so small than when I caught a glimpse of Him today.  In the swiftness of the blink of an eye, I sensed Him in the midst, and I buckled under the weight of His love.

I fall to my knees, and I can hardly breathe. He loves me to overwhelming.

And right there in this moment, I want nothing more than embracing eternity and forever be with Him.

  2. YES! I think you and I have a lot in common in some of this. However, would so love to “see” Him flash past. For some strange reason, after my 46 years with Him, just this past short stretch of time … a few months only, I think … my brain is flooded with “is this real?” or “are you sure what you believe is true?”. I don’t remember being in this phase of spiritual life. What it boils down to is that all I can do is Trust Him and plead the Blood over my mind, heart, soul, and spirit. And move forward. And I will.
