one thousand gifts {#1214-1251}

“I have loved You with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued My faithfulness to You.”

{Jeremiah 31:3}

The love of God just blows me away. The Creator of the universe knows me the best, yet He loves me the most. He knows everything about me. He sees all my stinky, wretched, sinfulness. He sees the ugliest parts of my heart. YET He loves me anyway. What lavish love. And I continue to count the endless ways He proves His love for me.
