An Embrace Everlasting

31
“I love you so much!” I told the Lord recently, as though He hasn’t heard this over and again from me. But this time was a little different, for I had something to add. “I wish I could give you a great big God hug!”

Of course my arms would never be wide enough, but I suppose it’s the thought that counts, right? Not only would my arms not be wide enough, but how could I ever give God a big enough hug to describe the degree to which I love Him?

As I wrote these thoughts to the Lord in my “God’s Notebook”, I then looked at hugs from another angle. I considered how desperately I had sought for years a man to love me, a man to hold me, a man for me to love and hold in return. Oh, how indescribably desperate I was to be held by a man!

“All those years I wanted a man to hold me,” I told the Lord, “If I had only known.” If I had only known what?

If I had only known how great is God’s love, and if I had only known how extraordinary His embrace!

“Now that I’m held by you,” I continued writing to the Lord, “Nothing compares to your everlasting embrace.”

I spent decades seeking the perfect man to love and be loved by. Never in a million years could I have imagined who that perfect one was, and is, and always will be! Nor could I imagine the height and depth and the width of His love for me – nor my love for Him!

Looking for an everlasting embrace? Run into His arms. . .

14For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15from whom every familyc in heaven and on earth is named,16that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21 ESV underlining added
