You do not give Yourself in pieces. You do not hide Yourself to tease us. Your love is not fractioned, it is unrestrained. Your love is wild for us! 

Yesterday, I recounted these words (from ‘Pieces’ by Amanda Cook) with a friend of mine and she perfectly summarized all our musings when she said, “I love how He loves.” Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, was right. We need power to understand how wide and long and high and deep the love of Christ is, and to know that this love surpasses knowledge. To know that He loves me even when I feel unlovable, that He is right beside me on days I cry myself to sleep, that He calls me His daughter every day despite my faults and failures; that is mind blowing in itself! 

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. -1 John 4:16(NIV)
Lord, what love is this that you gave your life for me?Sometimes, when in doubt I ask, “Does anyone really love me?” or “How can I bring myself to love this person after all they have done to me?” Do remind me that You are love and I ought to love recklessly like you do.’ No one can truly love without having first experienced God’s love. Let us then stop looking for love in people and worldly things where we cannot fully find it. Let us get it from the source Himself. His love never fails, never gives up and never runs out on us.
