A Quick Trip – Friday


Still in Ohio…will be back far too soon. So, here’s another repost. God bless!




???????????????????????????????My grandson Percy turned two in February. Since learning to talk, there is one phrase that has remained the same. It hasn’t changed. There is no variation.


“Percy, I love you!” This statement could be spoken by any number of people in this little man’s life, but his reply is always the same. “Too.”


Percy’s love for those of us in his life can be seen in his smile, his excitement, his determination to be held, his jubilation, his bright eyes, his energy…these things are seen when he walks into a room and locks eyes with someone he loves.


I can see these same traits in God’s love for mankind (and for me personally). I read it throughout His Word. I see it in creation. I notice it when I’m in communion with Him.  I know it when His grace covers me. I rely on it when I feel unlovely.


Today I offer you verses that speak of God’s love for us. Enjoy the riches of His love. Bask in the fact that you are loved. There is nothing like it!


“Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.” (Psalm 17:7 – NIV)


“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” (Psalm 36:5 – NIV)


“I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” (Psalm 52:8b – NIV)


“For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.” (Psalm 100:5 – NIV)


“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 – NIV)


“And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” (Romans 5:5 – NIV)


“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17b-19 – NIV)


“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1a – NIV)


“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.” (1 John 4:7a – NIV)


“Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.” (Jude 1:21 – NIV)


Because of God’s love for us, we in turn love Him. Perhaps these are verses you can repeat to God to tell Him of the love you have for Him!


“I love you, O Lord, my strength.” (Psalm 18:1 – NIV)


“I love the house where you live, O Lord, the place where your glory dwells.” (Psalm 26:8 – NIV)


“I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.” (Psalm 116:1 – NIV)


These verses are not an exhaustive list of the what is contained in God’s Word, but it’s a start. Dig deep. Look for the passages about God’s love and see if you too will agree that God’s love is indeed better than life!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
