When I think about how much you have done to pursue me, pursue us- this broken, defiled, beautiful human race- when I think about how you felt so much anguish that you sweated drops of blood, when I think how your name was drug through the mud and how people abused you and still mock you, when I think about how little time we give to you and how much time we give to ourselves, when I think about how much I still don’t grasp how much you sacrificed out of love me, I want to fall to my face and and kiss your feet. You are incredible. You are a loving and gracious God that feels our sorrow and enters our pain…all for the sake of love. You are so very good. I am a such a sinful person, I am so sorry. Thank you so much for all you’ve done and all you keep doing. You are “awe”-some.
May my heart never forget the depth of your love. Remind me when I am cold. Be my portion and my shield. Let me not forget all you gave, just so you could be with me.
I love you, my Savior, Amen!
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
