Acceptance

I absolutely loved the excerpt that I read in my devotions the other day.

"The promises of God's love and forgiveness are as real, as sure, as positive as human words can make them. but like describing the ocean, its total beauty cannot be understood until it is actually seen.
It is the same with God's love. Until you actually accept it, until you actually experience it, until you actually possess true peace with God, no one can describe its wonders to you.

It is not something that you can do with your mind. Your finite mind is not capable of dealing with anything as great as the love of God. Your mind might have difficulty explaining how a black cow can eat green grass and give white milk-but you drink the milk and are nourished by it. Your mind can't reason through all the intricate processes that take place when you plant a small flat seed and it produces a huge vine, bearing luscious red and green watermelons-but you eat them and enjoy them! You can't understand radio, but you listen. Your mind can't explain the electricity that may be creating the light by which you are reading at this very moment-but you know that it's there and that it is making it possible for you to read!"

-From Peace with God by Billy Graham

We just have to believe in faith! Look at the creation. How could it just have happened? It's there for us to see and believe and know God is real! Romans 1:18-21 .Thanks for sharing!

I was raised to believe in these principles. I was always told that we can't see the air or have visible proof of oxygen, but we take each breath and know it is present. Such a lovely post.

My DH was observing a Gladiola blossom I'd brought in for our viewing pleasure as he marvelled at its creation and its Creator. And I have been trying to wrap my mind around the love God has for me these past couple weeks. I just have to experience it to grasp even the tiniest portion. Thanks, Stacie!
