God Longs for Us


I pray that you…may have the power….to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

God longs to be with you, he wants us to know how much he loves us.

His love cover over our sins, our mistakes, our past regrets and our failures

His heart beats for you.

He thinks about you, he is patient waiting with open arms for your to come to him.

What must you do? Believe in Him, in Jesus.

Every fall leave that turns bright orange is a sign that he loves you.

He is invisible, but his visible creation proclaims that He exists and that He loves.

The bright blue sky: “I love you”

The continual change of the seasons: “I love you”

The bright green grass: “I love you”

The smile and laughter of a little child: “I love you”

A man named Jesus sacrificing his life on a cross so that you can be with him forever in a place where there is no suffering, no death, no hurt:“I love you”

He is here and he is waiting for you. Can you open your heart to Him?

He is whispering right now “I love you, will you please come to me? My arms are wide open for you.”

His love is unending, never stopping, unchanging, patiently waiting for you.


If you don’t know Jesus, He is asking you right now to just pray a simple prayer to Him.  It can look a little something like this: ” Jesus, I don’t know you, but I want to know you.  I am a sinner and I realize that I have made mistakes. You died on the cross for those mistakes, and sins.  Please , I want to know you Jesus.  I believe in you, help overcome my unbelief. Come into my life, In Jesus Name Amen.”
If you have prayed that prayer or want to know more about Jesus please feel free to contact me.

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.-Romans 3:23

For the payoff of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.-Romans 6:23

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.-Ephesians 2:8,9

This is a 5 minute friday. I write for 5 minutes unedited whatever is on my heart.

    A beautiful reminder of God’s ‘I love you’ message all around us. It is a wonder we can miss it. How can the chaos of life crowd out His love messages to us?
    This is a reminder to look around and see how God longs of us. For me.

      Cheryl, I often forget to see His “I love you”s that are all around us. I get caught up in the busyness of life and forget to stop hurrying through life. Thank you for stopping!

    Hi Kortney …His love speaks loud, whispers gently, does what He pleases through every bit of creation. And your photo? Lovely, as well.

    I hope your Sabbath is filled with soothing and radiant moments …

      Linda, thank you so much for stopping by again. IHe does whisper “I love you” to us all throughout the day, if we take time to listen and notice. I find that if I choose to be thankful, my thoughts turn upward instead of downward. However, this is a hard practice for me! I am still working through it. May you have a beautiful Sabbath as well.
