Your love; O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. (Psalm 36:5)
Right from the beginning God’s love has reached, and from the beginning man has refused to understand. But love went on reaching, offering itself. Love offered the eternal… we wanted the immediate. Love offered deep joy… we wanted thrills. Love offered freedom… we wanted license. Love offered communion with God Himself… we wanted to worship at the shrine of our own minds. Love offered peace… we wanted approval for our wars.
Even yet, love went on reaching. And still today, after two thousand years, patiently, lovingly, Christ is reaching out to us today. Right through the chaos of our world, through the confusion of our minds. He is reaching… longing to share us… the very being of God.
His love still is longing, HIs love still is reaching, right past the shackles of my mind. And the Word of the Father became Mary’s little Son. And His love reached all the way to where I was.
His Love… Reaching
Written by Gloria Gaither
Dear Father God, Thank You for loving me enough to send Your Son to die for me. Thank You for a love that knows no measure. A love that is not bound by obligation. A love that is freely given and freely received. Thank You for this love that has truly transformed my life!
Loved by the Father,
