Song: Your Love Is DeepArtist: Jami Smith
Album: Wash Over Me
Your love is deep,
Your love is high,
Your love is long,
Your love is wide.
It's a simple lesson, really. God's love for us is deeper, higher, longer, and wider than anything we can imagine. No matter how many times we screw up... no matter how many errors we make... no matter how undeserving we may be... God loves us... each and every one of us.
One of my favorite kids' stories is Guess How Much I Love You by Sam Bratney.
Little Nut Brown Hare: I love you all the way up to the moon! (Nothing could be farther than the moon!)
Big Nut Brown Hare: I love you all the way up the moon........ and back.
Now, if you have the book at home, re-read it... but substitute YOUR NAME for Little Nut Brown Hare and GOD for Big Nut Brown Hare. Just like the words in Jami Smith's song, no matter how big, or deep, or high, or wide your love is for God, HIS love is bigger, deeper, higher, and wider. You are enveloped in His love... all the way to the moon... and back.
Have a blessed day,

I also really like Big Stuf's (one "f") version on iTunes - that's the one I play a lot! :)
