Welcome to Jay’s blog, Stars on Earth.
I’m so thankful to God for your life because God has kept you this far and has shown you mercy and grace through every phase in your life and especially through the past months of this year…and oh, last month!
The fact that you’re reading this means that you’re alive and it means a lot to me.
Love is a very strong chord which binds 2 parties together.
God is love Himself in existence. Love breathed into us and we came alive. Love called us His own. Love came down when we didn’t understand to prove Himself to us and everyday Love still comes after us.
I really don’t know how to talk about this. God’s love is amazing! Too much for words. Always overwhelming…
Personally, I’ve tried to comprehend it, it always ends in tears; I’m always in sweet awe. The best part of it is that when I think I’m shocked about the way He expressed His love at one point, He does it again! Again, again and again! Better and better! He never leaves me without a sweet reminder.
Cory Asbury attempted to talk about it in his song “Reckless Love” when he said;
“Oh, it chases me down, fights till I’m found, leaves the 99”.
“I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still you give yourself away”
“There’s no shadow You won’t light up, mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down, lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me”
This song hits me so differently every time – different shades and dimensions of God’s love!
This experience might be strange to some persons because like I said earlier, love is a chord binding 2 parties. It’s like a seesaw; no matter how much love is given by one party, the other party doesn’t really benefit from it until he looks up and gravitates forward to receive it.
Love is so vast and beautiful and indeed conquers all things, but love cannot be fully expressed or enjoyed until it is recognised and accepted.
Most times we find it difficult to accept God’s love because it looks impossible, it sounds so surreal, we feel like it can’t be; like we’re unworthy and just too far away, but that is exactly what love is! We will never truly be worthy to receive true love because it is unconditional. The least we can do is accept it. In accepting it comes the grace to live up to it.
God’s love for me, the way I’ve felt it, is really big. I know it because no matter how deep in the ditch I get, no matter how dark I become, no matter how tiny my broken pieces may be, when I look up to Him, everything starts coming back together, suddenly there is this light that makes it all seem possible.
Also, the way He gently leads me to doing the right thing, without breaking my back or throwing my trash in my face, always melts my knees to surrender.
It’s like magic to me, and it is the greatest benefit I have; that I know that no matter what happens, I will always, always have a safe place and there will always be a way out. Little wonder Solomon in all his greatness concluded;
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and they are safe.” (Prov. 18:10)
The righteous here are those who have accepted God’s love as a result taken on Christ’s righteousness as theirs.
My lover’s love for me can’t be summarized, so as time goes on, I’d share bits and bits of it in form of various experiences I have, here on my blog.
Let me share the audio of the song “Reckless love” with you. You can download it directly HERE!😊
For now, I really want to know; when you think of God’s love, what do you remember?
What does God’s love mean to you?
