Sometimes I am overwhelmed at the love I feel for my own children. Sometimes it just hurts I love them so much.
I can remember after my first child was born, I would look at my daughter and I couldn’t picture loving anyone else like I loved her. Every part of her was precious to me. She made my heart so full that I just couldn’t imagine how I could love any other human being as much.
My heart could not possibly have that much love within it!
Well, I needn’t have worried because even in the womb I fell in love with my son. And holding him in my arms, I was amazed at how much bigger my heart felt because I loved two little human beings so incredibly much.
You would think I would have known better, but I felt that exact same fear when I got pregnant with baby number three. “I already love two there’s no way I can handle three!” Again, God graciously showed me I was wrong, my heart had plenty of room to fall in love with another child.
And there is no doubt in my mind that should God have blessed us with twenty children, there would be plenty of room in my heart to love each one.
That’s the amazing thing about love – whether it’s for one person or twenty it fills your heart but there’s always room for more.
Do you realize, Believer, you alone fill the heart of your Father in heaven. Just one of us is enough to make His heart ache, He loves us more than we can even fathom. But so amazing is our God and His love that He has more than enough room for all of us. He has more than enough love to go around.
Believer, this morning may you feel the love of God.
Whether you are having a good week or a rough one,
whether you feel like you deserve it or not.
May the truth that there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, that nothing can separate you from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord, may this fill your heart to overflowing, just like love for you overflows the heart of your Father in heaven.
