How Great the Father's Love for US

Friday 9th May 2008 - Seventh week of Eastertide

For as the heavens are as high above the earth, so strong is His love for those who fear Him.

We have had a week of reading Jesus' priestly prayer for us at the Last Supper. We heard Him say again and again the love God the Father has for Him He also has for us. Today's psalm, a self-portrait of God, the strength and vastness of that love.

God's love for me is incomprehensible in its hugeness. All I can do is simply soak it up, like lying on the beach on a summer's day soaking up the warmth of the sun.
The knowledge of God's love changes my whole world-view. This morning it is cold and raining outside and I will soon be riding through that to work. And yet I am so filled with joy! God loves me! Nothing can take that joy from me.

Thank you Father for loving me so much. Let me be a channel of Your love to others today.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
