Have you ever just felt the breath of God touching the sky? The brush strokes and colours arranged so perfectly like it was meant to be that way. A light breeze blowing through your hair touching your face. You breathe it in and soak up the smell of flowers in the air. Birds chirping in perfect harmony to everything else surrounding you.

Some days I feel like that especially when I’m surrounded by nature. I remind myself that God is like the wind. I may not see Him but I can feel His presence. So when the wind blows and I’m standing outside I close my eyes, open my arms and soak it up. Feeling like the wind wraps His hands around me and I smile. Knowingly. God has so much love for us. We can’t even begin to imagine…

How great, how wide, how deep is Gods love for me and you?

I think David has a pretty good description of God’s love. Maybe you might take it as your love song from the King.

PSALM 136
1Give thanks to the Lord , for he is good. His love endures forever.
2Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.
3Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
4to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.
5who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever.
6who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever.
7who made the great lights- His love endures forever.
8the sun to govern the day, His love endures forever.
9the moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.
10to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever.
11and brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever.
12with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever.
13to him who divided the Red Sea asunder His love endures forever.
14and brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever.
15but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever.
16to him who led his people through the desert, His love endures forever.
17who struck down great kings, His love endures forever.
18and killed mighty kings- His love endures forever.
19Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever.
20and Og king of Bashan- His love endures forever.
21and gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever.
22an inheritance to his servant Israel; His love endures forever.
23to the One who remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever.
24and freed us from our enemies, His love endures forever.
25and who gives food to every creature. His love endures forever.
26Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

Here are some more scripture verses I hold onto:

Zepheniah 3 ; 17The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

Jeremiah 31:3The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.

Song of Solomon2:4He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.

Today my prayer for you is to be reminded just how much God loves you. The next time you feel the wind, open your arms wide and let Him embrace you.

Sweet dreams!!

With Love Always
