Amazing Love

When you become a mother you learn what unconditional love truly is. You learn that the love you have for your child is unlike any other love you’ve ever experienced. It’s pure, deep, and absolutely amazing. Your love for your child is a strong bond that can never be broken. No matter what it is that they may do that love never falters.

Your love is a driving force…it moves you to do whatever it takes to make your child safe. If your baby is sick, you fight to make him/her better. It gives you hope and courage to do things you never thought you’d do and it pushes you out of your comfort zone to encourage others to do the same for their children.

Your love is a comfort zone for your child. A place of peace and rest. A security blanket in a sense. Your child always knows that in your arms they are protected and secure. It reassures them that everything will be ok and that you will never, ever leave them.

The love between a mother and her child is beyond expression. The depths are unimaginable…the widths are immeasurable…it truly is infinite.

What’s more amazing? Take that love that you feel in your heart for your child and multiply it a million times over…maybe even more. That is the love that God has for you…amazing love…indescribable and unchangeable love. No matter what we do or how far we stray away from Him, He is always there loving us…just as we do for our own children. Beautiful, perfect, unending love is the love our Father has for us.

"If you had any idea how much God desires you… your heart would explode. You can’t possibly imagine how vast God’s love is, or how relentless it is. Nothing can alter it. Nothing can stand against it. God’s love for you is simply beyond your imagination. Your sad little sins cannot even touch it. He has prepared a place for you in His house, and He calls you by name. He aches for you, and desires to abide with you, beyond all longing you have ever felt, or will ever feel." -Unka Glen
