Word-Filled Wednesday : I have loved you with an everlasting love

























The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying,
Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love:
therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
Jeremiah 31:3

Nothing is more powerful to engage our affection than to find that we are beloved! Expression of kindness and love are usually pleasing and acceptable unto us irrespective of who expresses it to us.

But to have the love of One Who is altogether lovely, to know that the glorious Majesty of heaven hath any regard unto us, how must this astonish and delight us, how must it overcome our spirits and melt our hearts, and put our whole soul into a flame!

Thank God for His everlasting and immeasurable love for us! It will take me a lifetime to try and comprehend it, and even then I may not fully understand it!

May you continue to know God's everlasting love and goodness in many wonderful ways daily :)

For more Word-Filled Wednesday participants, do
visit Amy at The 160 Acre Woods. It will be a very blessed and encouraging experience for you.

Thank you for stopping by. Thanks for your prayers and encouragements. Hope you have a blessed day!

Beautiful post. I was thrown off for a moment though with Word-Filled Wednesday on Tuesday. For a second I thought I missed my homeschool meeting yesterday... but it's still Tuesday and it's tonight. :)

Have a blessed day!

A wonderful posting Nancie! There are so very many aspects of our Lord God that are awesome. To focus on His Love, does melt our hearts. There is a hymn "Amazing Love, how can it be that Thou my God has died for me!" I can never sing the entire hymn without crying; thinking about His amazing love & sacrifice! Thank you Nancie for sharing about His love!

Bless you Nancie...for this gorgeous rose and Word from Jeremiah! How true your own words that HIS LOVE so everlasting is so incomprenhensible for us to fathom! Such loving and encouraging thoughts! I'm so glad HE LOVES YOU and me (and all our blogger friends)! From reading these words after your excellent message on Monday, I can tell that GOD is expressing His love and handing you this rose and His sweet fragrance of refreshment!
Enjoy and keep your pace!Much love
the Father has given unto us! Thank You Lord for drawing Nancie and I(and others who hear Your Word)closer to You with loving kindness! Thank You Lord for Your everlasting, unconditional love!

It is a beautiful thought of being loved by anyone. But I have found no greater love than the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and God our Father.
