Too Much Love?

Last night, my son Vincent and I went to the grocery store to get a few things. I always enjoy spending one on one moments with my children. It's during those times that they know they have my complete and undivided attention. I so enjoy telling them and showing them how much I love them.

So, last night on the way back from FoodLand, I'm talking to Vincent and I ask him, "do you know how much Daddy loves?" He responded back very quickly with a huge smile, "you love me too much, Daddy!" I looked back at him and said, "if that were only possible."

I think that's similar to heart of God. He has blessed us in such immense ways, shown His love for us in ways that we just cannot fathom, yet with God, there is no such thing as TOO MUCH LOVE. His very essence is love. 1 John 4:8 reminds us that GOD IS LOVE.

I pray that you are reminded today that no matter what, God, your Heavenly Father, loves you so much. So much in fact, in our own human understanding, it seems like to much. "If that were only possible." I'm so glad it's not!
