I hope you had a great weekend!
I’m posting back-to-back Blogmas posts since I missed yesterday, so I apologize for posting twice in one day. Although with that said, I realize that posting twice in a day will happen a couple of times each week as I am currently doing the 52 Weeks of Gratitude challenge and Bible Study Sundays!
I decided to combine my Bible Study Sunday post with a Blogmas prompt today to make sure I wouldn’t be posting three times in one day (I think two posts is enough for me). One of the writing prompts from Kinzie’s December Writing Prompts is to copy a bible quote into your journal (or in this case, onto my blog).
I was reading The Power of Being Thankful daily devotion book by Joyce Meyer and today’s devotion was about God’s unwavering, unconditional love for us. The featured verse for this devotion comes from Romans chapter 8, verses 38-39 and it reads….
“For I am persuaded beyond doubt that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” -Romans 8:38-39
In the devotion, Joyce writes that there are two different kinds of love and we must differentiate between the two kinds of love that we experience; God’s love and love from other people. God’s love is unconditional, infinite, and persistent in our lives where in many of our human relationships, this is not always so. God’s love for us will never fail and we are meant to love Him and thank Him for His love.
I feel that this is extremely important to remember, especially around this time of year, as that is what Christmas is really all about. The birth of Jesus clearly emulates God’s love for us as Jesus was born to teach the people about the word, heal the sick, and spread the love of God. He loved each and every person so fiercely that He would sacrifice Himself to take away our sins…that is truly amazing love and it is something to be thankful for each day.
Love in Christ,
