Thought I'd participate in the chat over at the Internet Cafe today.
We were asked:
Tell of one specific time in your Christian walk that you were overwhelmed with God’s love for you.
There are so many times that God just comes in a overwhelms me to the point I can't hardly speak.
I find His love overwhelming me when I'm at the end of my rope, when I feel that the situation I'm in at the moment just won't let me go any farther. When I'm so tired that I can't even pray and Jesus has to step in and intercede for me because all I can do is sit in silence and tears before the Throne, God just wraps me up in those big ole' arms of His and holds me. While it's not a physical feeling I'm having, there is no doubt that the love of God is present and enveloping me in all that He is.
When I've "messed up" and I know that the decisions or the choices I've made is less than pleasing to my Father and I have to go before the Throne and confess that with a repentant heart....I'm completely overwhelmed by the love and grace of a merciful Father.
I'm so human and God is so God. Overwhelming love always comes to me when I'm before the Throne because I know what I am.....a very undeserving daughter of the King.
