The Real Deal


Love that is real, oh, don’t we all want that?   Not Hollywood movies. Not flowers and candy. Not even candlelit dinners. Don’t get me wrong, love is wonderful, but those examples are more about romance…and romance is fickle.

The love that God has for us is real love, that love that is unbreakable, undeniable, inescapable, and irreversible.

Love that is steady as a rock, and strong as the cross. 


I pulled this post from my archives….a reminder of all the ways that He loves…..

God Is So Good…And I Am So Loved

The journal is setting on the kitchen counter.

It is a simple, blue spiral notebook…the kind one sees at back to school sales at Wal-mart.

In itself, is nothing special, and  yet, it full of the most special.

Each word and phrase penned from a thankful heart.

Every word a reminder, of gifts so freely given to me.

Simple things, ordinary things, daily things…

How often, before the journal, did I gloss over the everyday moments,

not really see them for what they are?

God is so good…and I am so loved.

He shows me this a million times over.

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. Matthew 7:11 NLT
