If we had never heard of God, had never read anything about Him or been taught anything about Him, and we were to start imagining what we would want a God to be like, what would we imagine?
I would imagine:
Someone that is just one immense bundle of pure love, acceptance and
Someone who would forgive all I did wrong, understand me
perfectly, hold me no matter what...
Someone I need never fear
but instead a protector who sheltered me safely and put away all
Someone of infinite peace who made me feel so comfortable in His
presence, who always brought rest to my weary heart and comforted me in
every way, who took care of me and made sure everything in my life
worked out for the very best...
Someone who would be like the perfect
parent, spouse and friend all wrapped up in one and magnified by
Someone who would love me like I'd always dreamed of being
loved, who would never leave me...
Someone whom I couldn't drive away no
matter what I did, who was committed to me no matter what, who would see
me through to the end and make sure I'd be with Him forever!
Well, wouldn't God be more wonderful than any of those amazing thoughts?
Yes, surely God is way beyond what we could ever ask or imagine!
Surely He is infinitely better than we could ever dream! All the ideas
you could imagine of the most wonderful, perfectly kind, gentle,
accepting, protective, caring, friendly, joyful and peaceful and loyal
Being of pure Love...multiplied by infinity...all that is just a tiny
glimmer of the beauty of all God is for us and to us!! He is more
wonderful and more loving and more accepting than we could ever imagine!
He is truly a Love beyond all imaginings! Thank You Papa! We couldn't have imagined a better Friend, a more loving Father, a more wonderful GOD than You are to us every moment! Any time we have ever thought You to be any less than Perfect Love, it only meant that our vision was clouded by lies and confusion..for Your name is Love and Love is the ONLY expression of Your nature! Thank You dear Papa and thank You dear Jesus for showing us this very thing in the incarnation, the cross and the resurrection..You revealed the Father's face in Your very own face, and what was revealed is that God, our Papa, is Love and ONLY Love, and that we are His beloved little children! And thank You Holy Spirit for making that love a real experience in our lives!
