How Wide, How Long, How High, How Deep.

I am stuck on these verses.
Swimming in them and trying to fully accept its truth!

“When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 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 is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭14-20‬ NLT)”

God really spoke to me through these verses and I pray He speaks to you as well.

Just pray over yourself using these verses and accept the love of our Father. Thank Him for it.

Again:

“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 is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭18-19‬ NLT)”

This alone is enough to make you worry-free. Knowing someone loves you SO much. Someone who is infinite and unchanging.

That’s as stable as love gets.

Someone who has been here since the very beginning and will continue to be here till the end.

This is eternal.
This is true love.

Don’t underestimate His love. Look deeper and reflect on all the instances in which God poured his love on you. Be grateful.

His love is enough and it COMPLETES you. No man or woman is capable of doing that. God completes you. So make sure He is number 1 in allllll you do.

Can you fathom that?

Abba, Father. Thank you. ❤


Shoutout to my schools' IVCF President, Nick, for pointing these verses out to me. Thank God for that!!

He’s all that Matters

Why is it only when things begin go wrong that we start shouting for the Lords help?

Why don’t we continue on a path of righteousness day in and day out?

We need to stand firm or before you know it you WILL be shaken.

It is hard to keep up because life gets busy, things happen, but that doesn’t make it not worth the effort.

Begin to rearrange your schedule and focus on God.

He doesn’t want you to miss out on His marvelous blessings.

He IS what matters, so focus on Him.

“STEER CLEAR” – Josh McDowell

This is from the YouVersion Bible App- Josh McDowell’s Daily Reading Plan

STEER CLEAR!

A wealthy man was once searching for a chauffeur to drive his limousine. Many people applied for the job, but the millionaire picked only a few to take a driving test.

The millionaire sat comfortably in the back of the limousine and told the first applicant to begin driving. As they drove along a narrow mountain road, the millionaire called to the driver, “See how close you can steer us to the edge of the cliff without falling off.” The driver, eager to show his skill, steered the expensive car within a few feet of the dangerous bluff. When they returned to the mansion, the millionaire said, “Thank you. We’ll let you know.”

The second driver then slipped behind the steering wheel. Again, the millionaire said, “See how close you can steer us to the edge of the cliff without falling off.” The driver, who was determined to outdo the first applicant, steered the long limousine within inches of the cliff! When they returned to the mansion, the millionaire told the second driver, “Thank you. We’ll let you know.”

Another driver then took the second driver’s place and was given the same instructions. But the third driver answered, “No way! I wouldn’t go near the edge of that cliff no matter how much money you paid me!” The millionaire smiled and answered, “You’re hired!”

The millionaire’s request was not intended to test the driver’s skill; it was intended to test each man’s wisdom. When he found a man who would steer clear of danger even if it meant losing a potential job, he knew he had found a safe driver.

God is looking for young men and women who will steer clear of danger, too, because he knows that making right choices begins with avoiding temptation. He doesn’t want his children to see how close they can get to sin without giving in. He wants you and me to look at temptation and say, “No way! I’m not getting near that!”

Many wrong choices can be avoided if we just steer clear of temptation. The Bible says: “Run from all these evil things, and follow what is right and good” (1 Timothy 6:11). If you’re tempted to steal cookies, stay out of the kitchen! If your friends are trying to get you to try cigarettes, get some new friends! In other words, if you avoid the temptation before you’re tempted, you’re less likely to be tempted. And that will make it easier for you to make the right choice.

REFLECT: Do you usually steer close to temptation or do you tend to steer clear of temptation? Think of your three strongest temptations. How can you steer clear of them?

PRAY: “Lord, give me the desire to run from all that is evil and to follow all that is right and good.”


I pray you were blessed by this. In our generation, temptation is everywhere. My brother and I say #ItsTooEasy because it really is so easy especially when you’re away from home and in college. Don’t let temptation get the best of you; if Jesus could “steer clear”, I’m sure we all can too ( By His Grace) .

Maybe i’ll share more about my take on temptation and title it #It’sTooEasy. Watch out for that one

“Who am I that you are mindful of me?”

The Love of God is like no other and the events in my life can attest to that.

Oh how He loves me.

Wow.

People wonder why I’m so happy these days.

They wonder why I can show love.

They wonder why I’m so comfortable in my skin.

They wonder why I am who I am.

Well here’s the answer.

It is because of the love of God and the love He has for me.

To some it may seem like a “front” that I put on, but to me, it’s real and it really is real.

His touch.

His comfort.

His healing power.

His reassurance.

Thank you Jesus for saving us all.

That’s why I’m happy.
