Basking in the Beauty of God’s Love

Imagine the greatest instance of heart-bursting love you’ve ever experienced. Recreate that moment in your mind with as much detail as you can. Were you on the giving end, receiving end, or both? Where were you? What were you doing? Who were you with? What led up to that moment. How did it make you feel mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually? Feel the joy swelling in your chest, laughter bubbling out of you, peace overflowing from you. Whatever it was that made that moment glorious, feel it!

God loves you more than that. Infinitely more. Let yourself bask in that for a little bit.

The Creator of the Universe loves you more than you can possibly comprehend.

The amazing moments where we experience the greatest human love possible connect us with him, act as reminders of his goodness, and help us wrap our minds around and the vastness of his love for us. Don’t let those moments slip through your fingers. Let’s capture them on paper!

Prayer journaling is a powerful way to connect with God, focus our prayers, and make sense of our feelings. With today’s post, we’re continuing the Overflowing Jesus Journal prompts, and this is Day 4. If you missed it, start with Day 1, which explains the whole concept.

Romans 15:13 – I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Day 4 Prompt:

Let yourself bask in the verse, above. 

Think back on all the beautiful, loving moments in your life, instances where you could specifically feel God’s love for you, or the moment seemed just perfect in some other way, because these are all gifts from the Father.

These could be cherished moments as of you as a child with a parent, as a parent with your child(ren), as a fur mama with your four-legged baby, a special time with your significant other, or any beautiful God-moment. The tiniest things count. Don’t limit yourself to the typical. The “size” of the memory doesn’t matter, just the experience. 

  • Write down as many of these moments as time allows. 
  • Thank God for each of them. 
  • Pray to understand his love more, and to recognize him in them as they occur.
