Amazing Love!

Today, I was delighted to read a beautiful letter that told me how loved, cherished and adored I am. There is nothing more amazing than to have someone tell you that you are precious, important, and special--that their love for you is so deep, so sincere that they cannot imagine the world without you in it.

Being adored is the longing of a girl's heart. We dream as children that one day a handsome prince will come to rescue us from all that is wrong and save us from all that is harmful, and that he will love and care for us with fierce loyalty and devotion.

That, my precious ones, is exactly what God tells us in His Word--His love letter to us. He loves us! He adores us! He cherishes us! He saves us! And because of his immeasurable, unfathomable love, I delight in the words of the Psalms that continue today's journey through scripture.

Psalm 89,96,100,101, and 105 all encourage us to praise Him, to sing and shout with joy and tell of His love and greatness. Here are the first verses of each of these chapters:

89: 1 I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever!
Young and old will hear of your faithfulness.
96: 1 Sing a new song to the Lord!
Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
100: 1 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Worship the Lord with gladness.
101: 1 I will sing of your love and justice, Lord.
I will praise you with songs.
105: 1 Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.

When I consider the depth of His love, it's simply impossible not to sing with joyful songs of worship and praise! Thank you Father for loving me, for saving me, for adoring me. I am amazed!
