When you become a parent you get a closer glimpse of how firece the love of God is for his children.
Nursing my baby I look down at his butterfly lashes, closed peacefully as he suckles. He is tender, tiny, helpless- just like we are under Go’ds care. He clings to me, trusting wholly my embrace to comfort him, to provide security and warmth. He knows I will meet his every need.
I love him fierce.
God wants us to be like little children. To trust like a newborn longs for his mother. We are wee creations compared to Him, the Almighty.
He longs for us fiercely and tneerly to run into his embrace. How crazy is that, to know that the God of the universe, Creator of everything loves you and me?
He aches for us to lean in and hear His heartbeat and let Him be our ultimate comfort source and resting place.
He loves us fierce.
He loves me. He loves you. Like a newborn, seek Him in the late hours of the night and under the warm sunshine of day. Rest in His peae. Let his warm breath and gentle voice be your everything, speak to your being.
Let Him be the reason you live.
