More Love…

All throughout my life… I’d hear the comment, “your father loves you so much. He takes so much pride in you. He is so happy when he talks about you”…

And then… When he died… Well it’s like the comments about my father’s love for me were solidified…

Because again… Well I heard, “your dad talked about you all the time. You could really tell he loved you a lot”…

And those comments… Those statements… Those truths that I heard so many times… Well they struck me this morning…

My dad wasn’t someone who ever really said, “I love you”… Actually it was a very rare occasion when he did…

But his actions always spoke loud and were very clear…

And I think this is how I feel about God…

People who are close to me… Even those who don’t really know me… Well they constantly say, “God must really love you. Look at how blessed you are”… Or, “God just keeps telling me He loves you so much”….

But like my relationship with my earthly father… Well I didn’t and haven’t really accepted that love the way I should…

Because to me… Well this is just life…

But I believe God is trying to show me something… And it’s merely to accept the love He has and continues to pour out onto me… The love that is so evident to those around me… The love that makes me and my life with Him all that it is…

So that I can truly gain this truth that His love for me is so real… So honest and always so available…
