Falling in Love with God

God, your love is amazing.
Thank you for showing to me….the many facets of your love for me.
   You knew me and loved me before I was even born.
   You loved me from the moment of my first breath.
   You loved me in my sin.
   You loved me and gave your Son for me.
   You loved me in Christ.
   You loved me in all my waywardness.
   You loved me in all my clumsy attempts to please you.
   You loved me like a rock.
   You loved me steadfastly.
   You loved me like a lion, calling me back to your side.
      You love me still.
      You will love me ever.
Thank you for your unfathomable love,
     from before the foundation of the world until now.
Teach me to love you more truly.
In Jesus’ name, amen.

Bob Hostetler, Pastor and author from Ohio, from Falling in Love with God


Romans 8:38-39

For I am sure that
  neither death nor life,
  nor angels nor rulers,
  nor things present
  nor things to come,
  nor powers,
  nor height nor depth,
  nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
