And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him (1 John 4:16).
I know a little bit about the love God has for us because I gave birth to two babies. I spent the nine months of preparation in awe of the miracle happening in me. Let’s face it, each birth is a miracle. Science cannot explain how that baby is formed. They know the stem cell, the original cell in the fetus, has everything in it that baby will need throughout its life. How that happens, science doesn’t know. When those two babies emerged from me, my love has never been stronger than what I had, and have, for them. I believe that love is also a miracle. Even today, when my babies have babies of their own, and one is a grandmother (making me a great grandmother!), if evil came barreling down on any one of them, I would shove them out of the way, and take the impact myself.
God loved us so much that He sent His Son to take the impact for us. Another miracle is that every day His blood takes the impact for us. I believe in his love for us. Because I believe it, I expect it, and because I expect it, I receive it, and because I receive it, sometimes I am so inundated with His love I can barely move. That’s another thing we cannot explain. How is it that when His Presence moves on us, we are so overwhelmed we fall in the Spirit, or we are glued to our chairs, or we cannot speak? It’s His unexplainable love!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
