God’s Love

happy-mothers-day

It is one of the most humbling yet empowering experiences ever to truly open our hearts and receive God’s love for us.  Sending His Son to us on Christmas day so long ago is ultimate proof of God’s love.

Why do our hearts break?  Because we have loved.  We love so much that our hearts feel that they could burst.  After Christian passed away, I felt my heart break.  Anyone who has lost a loved one or who has been separated from someone they love knows this pain.

When we accept God’s love for us, our hearts fill and when they break, perhaps this is how our love can flow out of our hearts to others.  We love others and ourselves with the love God gives to us so abundantly.  How would we live our lives if we truly accepted God’s love?  How much more would we be willing to serve others?  How much more would we invest in our God given talents and eventually use them to bless others?

God loves us for who we are.  God loves us despite our mistakes and failures.

The greatest gift we can receive this Christmas and every single day of our lives is God’s love.  The greatest gift we can give back is our hearts.
