I had a really cool conversation with a friend last night & we were talking about having a deep & close walk with God. As we were talking, I was thinking about the immensity of God’s love for us. Sometimes I think we have a hard time recognizing God’s love for us because we are accustomed to experiencing human love, which has lots of flaws, shortcomings & distortions. I think that God’s love for us is of such infinite, pure & outrageous quality that we often neglect to observe & certainly experience His love because we are so used to the human distorted love that is commonly expressed in our world.
Most certainly God does express His love to us through various relationships we have, but we must be careful not the confuse the person for the Source. God is perfect love & He loves us perfectly even though we are unable to comprehend His love. Perhaps part of why we sometimes struggle with God’s love is because we try to understand it with our mind rather than also letting ourselves experience His love with our hearts. And one of the most grand adventures that I have experienced so far, is letting God love others through me – now that’s better than snowboarding, paragliding in China, watching nests of flying fish in Africa or anything else 🙂
