The Love of God

The love of God . . . . . .

This is something I have always struggled to understand. I've read scripture that describes this, but never has it seemed to sink in - until this morning.

I am at a camp with my youth group and I am learning so much. In my quite times God has been bombarding me with his love and the scripture that speaks his love to me. I want to share with you my journal from this morning. I pray that God's love will dig into your heart!

"You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace." Song of Songs 4:9

Lord, your words are so beautiful. God you eloquently describe and portray your love for me in a way that I have never known. Jesus, I am beginning to understand the depth of your love. I have never been loved like this and this is just the beginning. Lord, I want you to be the ove of my life, my protector. I wan our love to be more intimate than anything I have ever known! I ask that your love that is shown to me is so evident! I pray that when you are loving me, I would know it is you without a doubt. And Jesus I don't want to keep that love to myself. I want to be so over-flowing with your love that it is passed on to others.

(this is my prayer, let it be yours too)
I love you Lord
and I lift my voice [heart, love]
to worship you
oh my soul, rejoice!
take joy MY KING
in what you hear
may it be a sweet sound
in your ear.
