God's love is the everyday protection from harm and danger.
God's love is the people you least expected to care but are more than willing to share.
God's love is the answer to a persistent prayer.
God's love is the realization that you are provided with the basic necessities in life, sometimes even more.
God's love is the assurance that no matter how difficult your problems may be, you are never alone.
God's love is the thing that keeps you going, gives you hope, and inspires you to live a life of service.
God's love saves, nourishes, nurtures, heals, empowers, sustains, moves, and transforms.
It is because of God's love that we are alive. Let it be because of God's love that we live.
There is serious disorder in the world today and we do not deny the fact that evil does exist. We may be in despair, but let us be assured of one thing: God loves us!
For Reassurance in Times of Desperation
God spoke to me today.
He broke through my childish doubts with words of comfort and assurance:
"Hang on there. Sit tight. Stick to My course for your life," He said.
"I will not let you down."
He reminded me of how He cared for the holy people of old,
how He watched over them and kept them through their
hours of suffering and uncertainty.
He reviewed my own life for me -
His living concern for me in the days of my youth.
He told me again of His commission for me
and the task He wanted me to do,
and His trust in me as His servant in this sorry world.
He repeated once again His promises to always stand by me,
to give me strength and support in the conflicts that lie ahead of me.
I know that God was with me today
just as surely as He was with the holy man of old.
I have nothing to be afraid of nor any reason to doubt the love
and the presence of my Lord.
(Adapted from Psalm 110)
A PRAYER THAT SAYS EVERYTHING:
Lord, You know all things, You can do all things, and You love me very much.
