Today is our last day studying the LENGTH of God’s love for us! We focused in on Psalm 39 and settled on the fact that the length of time God will love us in heaven will far outlast the short amount of time he is loving us on this side of eternity.
“4, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
Remind me that my days are numbered—
how fleeting my life is.
5 You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
at best, each of us is but a breath.” Interlude
6 We are merely moving shadows,
and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
not knowing who will spend it.
7 And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.”
I cannot tell you how mush a LOVE LOVE LOVE verses 5 & 6. I love them so much, I had to write a reminder on my hand about how short my life is. (A hand model, I am NOT, but I loved this illustration.) Life is so short, isn’t it?
And I am the worst at rushing around busily. I am late to almost everything. This was such a good reminder from the Lord to keep storing up my treasure in heaven with Him, because all this treasure we are running around to secure is not going to last very long. So where do we put our hope? In Him!
Our Love Letter to God:
We contrasted the amount of time our lives on earth are to the amount of time our lives in eternity with Jesus will be! And the Lord’s steadfast love, which we know endures FOREVER will be manifest, fully glorified in heaven. We will finally know what this agape love we can only imagine will be like there. FOREVER.
Our Love Letter From God: Happy Valentine’s From Him! What a gift!
I hope you all have a very LOVE filled weekend over Valentine’s, knowing you are LOVED by the King of Kings now and for all eternity!
