The Greek word for unconditional love. It is the highest form of Love. The kind of love that only God can give us.
Today I wonder what did I ever do to deserve such a love like that? Our carnal minds can never truly understand the infinite wisdom he has and how God can intervene in every aspect of our lives. How amazing our God is and how he can turn even the most tragic events in our life for HIS greater good. We only need to TRUST him and he will do the rest.
Trust… That is hard. It is extremely hard when one day your life is ‘perfect’ and in one phone call you have been completely shattered. Where is the trust in that? What God would allow such horrible things to happen to me and to you? The answer is simple. The same God who allows me to wake up every day and breathe the very air he has created. He is the same God who gave life to my precious daughter and hand selected every feature and gifted her with her million dollar smile. The same God who bestows his grace upon me and allows me to cry at his feet and beg him for answers I do not deserve. He is the same God who has broken generational chains and gives me wisdom to know it always him and never me who is in control. The same God who whispered to me ‘I know your pain. I too, gave my only son for you.’
Trust is hard, especially when we are broken or sad. He never says we will not suffer. He never says we will live a life worry free. Instead he tells us when we suffer we are to cling to him, like a child needs his mother. I need God more than ever. I am learning each day to trust a little more, to love a little more, be patient to those around me and judge a little less. I do not want this tragedy to consume me, keep me stuck and ultimately steal my joy. God wouldn’t want that and neither would my daughter. I am trusting he will heal all wounds within due time.
No matter how deep the loss, how long or how recent- Know that God’s love is Agape. It is infinite, unconditional and always there. It is constant and consistent. When we learn to trust and lean into that love, only good can from it. This is where we can heal, in his deep agape love for us.
