Yesterday I saw an incredible view driving east across the bridge to my neighborhood. In my rearview mirror the evening sunset brought beautiful orange hues in the clouds with sun rays streaming out behind them. It appeared gorgeous to me.
Papa said He painted it for me. (Yes, I consider myself one of those people who like to call Father God “Papa” or “Daddy.”) All of those beautiful colors and designs were delightfully strewn on His canvas in the sky.
This morning I held my kitty — actually he clamored onto my desk proceeding to knock things off as I tried to focus on work, then I held him. As a result, I closely looked at his fur. It’s fascinating how an animal’s fur looks like one color up to an imaginary “line” then changes to another. And it’s all done by tiny little strands. Each delicate fiber may have different colors on it, but when it’s all put together, very distinct markings materialize on a beautiful feline! It’s amazing!
Papa creates some wonderfully amazing things, don’t you think?
And you are one of those things.
You are a wonderfully amazing person whom He chose to create. Why? Because He loves you unimaginably.
Can you imagine every sunrise, every sunset, every furry creature, rainbow, canyon, babbling brook, ocean wave, bird and song you’ve ever seen and heard all rolled into one human being? Mankind demonstrates the epitome of His goodness! (Gen.1:31)
I believe there is nothing in this world to truly describe how much He loves us. That song Indescribable encapsulates much of this thought. However, I think His love goes beyond indescribable. His love is unimaginable — it’s more than, “we cannot describe it,” we can’t even imagine it!
It’s all of nature, its beauty and wonder; all of mathematics and science, its finite calculations and laws; all of literature, its prose, rhythm, and story; all of art and music, its depth, textures, emotions, and patterns. God’s love includes all of this and so much more! It’s beyond our imagination and comprehension!
And to whom does He desire to bestow this love upon? You and me.
Glorious sunsets. Furry kitties. I love both of these things and Papa God knows this.
Think about all the things you love. Turn that love around towards you and go beyond it. Way beyond it. God loves you unimaginably. Receive it.
