If each of God's blessings were a drop of water, we would all swim in the ocean of God's love, because there would be no dry ground on which to stand!
And yet we live each day within just such an ocean love, if only we would recognize it for what it is God’s covenant to us.
Not matter where we travel God has our backs and travels with us. God follows us into whatever sin we travel into or horror life thrusts upon us.
When we thirsteth we need only incline our ear to hear God’s love all around us, open our hearts and drink in his love.
With courage and grace we need only accept what we do not deserve and we cannot earn: God’s forgiveness and love.
1Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me; hear, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
