Falling For You
It is almost October and the leaves are beginning to change color.
The switch to weather in the 50′s has been a bit of an adjustment for me, but I am so excited for Fall. I have not experienced many (Falls) in my life, but I love it. The trees are so beautiful and the air is so crisp. I love that we are still able to be outside, perhaps cuddling up in a blanket, or by a fire. Last fall I was introduced to the Salted Caramel Mocha at Starbucks and fell in love.
But as I think about Autumn, watch the leaves beginning to fall and hear the different quotes about fall-love, I have been thinking a lot about God’s love. Every time I hear a sermon or read about God’s love for us, it blows me away. When I think about my love for God, I cannot say I have the same reaction. Just like in any relationship, our relationship with God is an investment. Investing our hope, trust, and love in God, is the safest, surest and most rewarding place.
I have challenged myself to fall in love again. Sometimes I get tired of hearing the typical sermons and my heart is complacent towards the love of God. I pray that God will stir up my heart and rekindle my passion and love for Him. I want to fall for Him all over again and continue to do so for the rest of my life. He is my first love and the reason for love. He warms my heart and soul more than any blanket, fire or Salted Caramel Mocha ever could.
“And I pray Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is.”
