more on love

I don't have much time to blog and I can't wait to make that time to share about Chicago but here's a quick thing to share:
I'm in this period of experiencing God's love for me and what exactly that means and looks like. I was reading today in John and once again, the Holy Spirit opened my heart to another realization about the endless amount of love the Lord offers me.

John 17:26
"I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the LOVE you have for ME (Jesus) may be IN THEM and that I myself may be in them."

It's ridiculous to try to even wrap my head around the amount of love God had for His son, Jesus. If the evidence of the cross wasn't enough to astound you in love, take what this verse is saying. The love that God has for Jesus is now able to be IN each and every one of us. That's a whole lot of lovin'. If Jesus is in you today, you are loved more than anyone, anything, or any idea could offer you. You are loved by the God of the universe. I am still being reminded of this daily.
