That song that goes “how deep is your love?”
To be honest, sometimes not so deep. Right?
Sometimes we don’t wanna love. Sometimes our family gets a little too on our nerves, we’re absolutely exhausted from a long day and feel like we’re not “going anywhere,” we’re stressed to the max and have a million things on our minds.
I feel like we let our boyfriend/girlfriend down, I didn’t do nearly as well on that exam as I could have, I didn’t make as much money as I thought I would.
I don’t want to disappoint my family, I feel like I’m a bad brother, I don’t feel as social as I used to.
Thoughts like this can absolutely consume us.
Thoughts like this can easily become all we hear, the norm, what we listen to.
Thoughts like this are not true.
Because maybe we failed that test, but God never failed.
Maybe we’re not the greatest lovers, but that’s because only One person is.
Maybe we’re stressed to the max and at our capacities, but God says I’ve never had a limited capacity.
Maybe He’s saying, right now, Give it to my, my son/daughter. I’m right here, and I already love you more than you’ll know on this earth.
So, to the brother, sister, father, mother, student, teacher, chef, athlete, businessman, daughter, son that feels beyond loving, or far from God–
No matter how far back you’ve stepped from Him, His never ending love has never been far from you.
