Love for Us

Since moving and being placed in Colorado, I have seen God’s unconditional, remarkable, unexpected yet purposeful love for me… here’s some examples: 

He spoke and beauty was created…for you to enjoy Psalm 65:6-8 Who creates the mountains by His strength, being clothed with power, Who stills the roaring of the seas,
The roaring of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples, So they who dwell at the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs [the evidence of Your presence].
You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy. Amos 4:13 amp For behold, He who forms the mountains and creates the wind, And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes the dawn into darkness, And treads on the heights of the earth—The Lord God of hosts is His name.

He has called me to be a mom and I was able to enjoy time with my daughter, Carrissa, in CO before she moved to London; He has a calling for you too. Jer. 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. fam

He covers you…we paid cash (literally counted out pennies) for our house cause I wasn’t thinking ahead and packed the checks.  Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 

He knows your heart, who you are and what you were created for…I love to dance and within a month of moving here I went to a fantastic and challenging dance class for adults.  Eph. 2:10 amp  For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].

He calls me His beloved from a book I got at a garage sale called the Sacred Journey, which tells of God’s love for me and how “the key to growing in God is receiving the revelation of His love Eph. 3:18.  The fourfold dimension of this love brings the fullness of Jesus into our lives.  We will never grow in God apart from a context of being enjoyed by Him.  Worship must flow from a heart captured by this love.”  His love was so great He gave up everything to win your heart.  Romans 8:37 amp Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us].

He gives more and more grace, which came through my family as I have at times spoken in anger out of fear when we were going up Pikes Peak or at the top of The Crags and worried that the kids would fall off a cliff or even when I am faced with another year of homeschooling & trying to listen to God’s direction and get frustrated.  . He is ready and very willing to give you the grace you need when you ask.  1 Cor. 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me, James 4:6a But He gives more grace. 

He gives freedom to be creative in my new home with blank walls to place art work, knick knacks to position or to engage in the joy painting.  He is a daddy God that loves to give.  Matt. 7:9-11  Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. freedom

(I did not paint this gorgeous wall, ha ha, it was at downtown Manitou Springs)

He has given me the ability to push myself and run in this mountain elevation and enjoy the beauty and quietness.  He has made you unique with special abilities.  Psalm 139:15 amp My frame was not hidden from You, When I was being formed in secret, And intricately and skillfully formed [as if embroidered with many colors] in the depths of the earth. running

He has that same pursuing love for you too; just look around and you’ll see it. ❤
