Extravagantly Loved

Today has been a weird day. The past week and a half has actually been a bit off for me. Sick kids, messed up routines, hectic schedules, and the like. So when I got home from church tonight, I played one of my favorite songs – Casting Crowns’ Your Love Is Extravagant.

Then I read today’s devotional on the Proverbs 31 blog. Glynnis Whitwer writes about how John referred to himself as ‘the disciple whom Jesus loved’.  I am also the disciple whom Jesus loves. And, as Paul states, this love is ‘by grace, … it is the gift of God, not a result of works so that no man can boast.’ Eph 2:8-9

I needed that reminder tonight. I needed that fellowship with my Father- a soft place to land where I feel secure and at peace no matter what storms are swirling around me. His love is truly extravagant!
