Explaining God’s Love

As I gazed up at the mountains, I was awed by their majesty; I bowed my head and asked myself, “Why should He care for me? I am not great like the mountains that tower so high above, What is there about me that God can find to love?” “Father, I am not strong like the wind that makes your tall trees sway, I cannot sing sweetly like your birds; will you love me anyway? But most of all, I am simply me, and often have cause to fear, In spite of all my weaknesses, do you promise to be near?” With eyes closed tight against my tears, I wished He could hear me pray. Then I felt His Spirit tell me, “Child, look up, I have something to say. “You are simply you, the spirit I love, a part of my great plan. I put you here to learn of life and to return to me again.” “You are more beautiful to me than the loveliest mountain I made, And your strength exceeds that of the wind’s, so do not be afraid. I love you not for what you are, but for what I know you will be. A smile touched my lips – I knew it was true, my Father had always been there Giving me comfort and blessings and love and my own special talents to share. So I do my best to make Him proud. I am not afraid, for you see, He loves me not for what I am, but for what He knows I will be. — Author Unknown Meditation: We love Him because He first loved us. – 1 John 4:19 You will succeed in Jesus Name!
