In the Darkness, His Love Reaches Out

There are times when my mind can't, or won't, wrap itself around a piece of truth. This morning the clouds of "down" refuse to let the light come through.

What little I can grasp convinces me that I don't know the full extent to the implications of this morning's verse; that I don't fully appreciate, nor does my mind calculate, what real love means.

Jesus said: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind'. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself'" —Matthew 22:37-39.

The tears course down my cheeks as I reach out to understand. My "want to" depends completely on His willingness to embrace me and show me what real love is.


  1. I don't think we will EVER understand fully His love for us. EVER. It can only humble us, and make us desire to love Him, and others, with all we have.
