His Love is Extravagant

First a repost, and then an update 2 years later.

On February 14th 2009 I wrote,

I’ll start out by saying Happy Valentines Day! I hope you cherish this day spending it with the ones you love.

Now to my point of this blog….Are you dateless on this valentines? That is definetly not a bad thing I promise. Use this day to spend time with family if they will be around. If not take time to meet with your God. He loves you more than anyone else you could spend your day with. Maybe you could take that time and pray for your future husband. You know he is already out there so why don’t you just pray for him that he will keep his eyes on God, and things like that. Enjoy this day, maybe its a pretty day outside go enjoy it 🙂

God loves you 🙂

Here it is Almost February 14th 2011.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone.  Well Valentines Day eve that is. I find myself now, incredibly happy. Happy with the love I have been blessed with in this life. Love, Family, and Friendship are all so incredibly important to me.

On this lovely valentines day I have been blessed with first of all, a God who loves me. I can’t help but drown in his love. While i know my mother loves me, along with my father, and other people in my life. There will NEVER be someone who loves me as Christ loves me. I’m so dirty, yet he loves me. I can’t get the words to this beautiful song by Casting Crowns out of my head,

Your love is extravagant
Your friendship, it is intimate
I feel I’m moving to the rhythm of Your grace
Your fragrance is intoxicating in the secret place
Your love is extravagant

Spread wide in the arms of Christ there’s a love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known; You considered me a friend
Spread wide in the arms of Christ there’s a love that covers sin
No greater love have I ever known; You considered me a friend
Capture my heart again

How beautiful. and what a beautiful relationship we share with our God. I’m so thankful that He chose to love me. I could take this time to write about my family, my friends, and Matt. But that’s not what I want. I’m so overwhelmed by God’s love right now it’s all I want to focus on. Look at the words. He has the most extravagant love, and gives us the most intimate friendship we will ever have. He chose to send his son to DIE for me. Who would I choose to do that for? I’m not sure if anyone. I’m overwhelmed by his love, and I don’t think I can truly convey it right now. But take time out of your day tomorrow away from time with your valentine, and focus on the GREATEST gift of love ever given. Christ ❤
