Wonderful Love

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
– Romans 5:8 KJV

Study Questions:

  1. In what ways does knowing God’s no-matter-what love change how you relate to Him?
    It changes everything! How could it not, Lord! It is mind blowing that You know everything about me… good and bad… better than I know myself… and STILL love me… NO MATTER WHAT!! Unconditional love is like no other love I have ever known! And I fall more and more in love with You every single second!!
    Thank You for loving me!!
    I absolutely love You the same way…. NO MATTER WHAT!! ❤
  2. How does God’s love for you change your love for others?
    Lord, Your love does wonderful things for all of us, whether we know it or not! I am grateful that You have allowed me to come to know it, and thankful that the Holy Spirit allowed my heart to believe it! Before Your wonderful love, I was scared of people, weary of people, untrusting of people, and growing further and further away from them. My poetry used to reflect just how painful I thought love was… referring to jagged knives, shattering glass, deep daggers, graves for the innocent… romanticizing death… and writing love letters to suicide.
    You created in me a love for others through the love I had for You and Your word. It began out of duty to Your word, and a sense of obligation to someone I loved so much. And to know that Jesus loved them so much that He died for them. You loved them so much that You allowed Your Son to make that painful sacrifice. Eventually I loved them too.
    Now I have a world full of church family and friends. I even have family on WordPress that mean so much to me. It breaks my heart to know so many are suffering right through so many trials. I especially think of our dear Caz! Lord, please bring her healing! Bring her good doctors and nurses! Bring her needed supplies and funds. Bring her comforting friends that she can trust to be there with her and for her… at the hospital and at home.
    Bring all my friends healing, comfort, finances, wisdom, direction, peace, health, employment, family, and the many things You have laid on their heart. And thank You for when You bring them to mind, as You did this day on the Parkway to make a video for them to ride along with me in one of our favorite places that I am always mentioning to them. I don’t even mind that I felt like I talked too much. My friends want to spend that time with me, and I want to spend that time with them!
    I praise Your Holy name for the day we will all be together to praise You forever! I love You and them!!! NO MATTER WHAT!
    Thank You for the Friend we all have in Jesus! ❤

  1. 🙂 You are such a blessing Sister 🙂 I love you too 🙂 Teach with love and not fighting 🙂 🙂 You went just far enough Sister 🙂 Lots of sweet, pure, godly wisdom 🙂 Non judgmental but full of conviction just as we should be 🙂 Praise the LORD for you sister, and for blessing you and continuing to use you for His good will 🙂 I am sorry I didn’t comment sooner. I wasn’t able to watch the video the first, second, or third time I tried but I am so happy you left the that comment. It reminded me to try, try again and this time hallelujah it let me watch it. It was perfect timing as God always is 🙂

    1. PTL! It was such a blessing to feel like you were riding along with me! 🙂 God was so generous to allow me to remember, and have the new smart phone to record. 🙂 ❤
      I understand about the difficulty in viewing the videos or loading pages. I am just glad you were able to see it a little bit! I'll try to work on a better one next time. That car's design doesn't allow for good vision through any of the windows, but it is the car God gave us. I consider it His car. But He will help me to get more footage sometime. 🙂 Looking forward to you riding with me again soon! 🙂 🙂
      Me and God love treasure time with you, Margaret! 🙂 ❤

  2. Oh Gail, you have such a kind, beautiful soul. Thank you SO much for including me in your thoughts here. I’m so glad I ‘met’ you in the blogging world. You’re my family and I wouldn’t have got this far without you. Thank you also for taking us on that car ride – how cool to see where you’re going! It looks lovely there on the first part of the drive, all the green grass and trees to either side of the road. It really is gorgeous there. I think you did amazingly remembering so many names, wow! Free library passes for the arboretum sounds good, have you been there before?

    And I’m so sorry about Anthony. A/C sounds like a likely culprit. Mildew and mould can be so dangerous without us necessarily knowing it or being able to spot where it is. I hope you can get a replacement unit that’s a good price, and be careful if it’s heavy. LOVE you Gail! xxxxxx

    1. Dear Caz, I have been trying for 2 days to get a response through to you! I had a long one typed and clicked send, and everything went wrong. Apparently our connection disappeared! 😦 It goes in and out.
      I was so touched by your kind words. God is kind to allow such sweet friendship. I love having you ride along. It was a beautiful day. And yes the arboretum is beautiful too, even in the winter!
      I often think of you and how hard a time you have. It is a gift to pray for you, dear friend. I pray you are having a better day filled with blessings. And I pray this message makes it through.
      Anthoni’s new AC helped immediately! He said he felt like he was breathing in fresh air. ❤
      Me and God love you, Caz! We treasure you!

    1. You make me think of the several different verses in the New Testament that say, “I thank my God for every remembrance of you, making mention of you in my prayer.” ❤ ❤
      Me and God cherish every moment with you, Maxine! 🙂
