March 13, Today’s thought — God Asks

Mar 8 bulbs 014

The Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is also to be feared above all gods.
I Chronicles 16:25

“Can anything make me stop loving you?” God asks.
Watch me speak your language,
sleep on your earth,
and feel your hurts.

Behold the maker of sight and sound
as he sneezes, coughs, and blows his nose.

You wonder if I understand how you feel?

Look into the dancing eyes of the kid in Nazareth;
that’s God walking to school.

Ponder the toddler at Mary’s table;
that’s God spilling his milk.

“You wonder how long my love will last?
Find your answer on a splintered cross, on a craggy hill.
That’s me you see up there,
your maker, your God, nail-stabbed and bleeding.
Covered in spit and sin-soaked.

That’s your sin I’m feeling.
That’s your death I’m dying.
That’s your resurrection I’m living.
That’s how much I love you.”

Accept God’s Love . . .Today
