How Wide, Long, High and Deep

skyEphesians 3:14-19 “When I think of the wisdom and scope of God’s plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the father, the creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soul of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

As many of you know, my husband has cancer. It has taken me a long time to even say that word in relation to my husbands name. I guess none of us ever imagine that we may have to associate any kind of illness with ourselves or someone we love, but when we do the whirl wind of emotion starts and many times a confusion, doubt and a certain lack of confidence creeps into our hearts.

Paul’s prayer for us in the scripture abouve is that Christ will be more and more at home in our hearts….AS WE TRUST HIM…… That our roots would go down deep into the soul of God’s marvelous love, This past month, this has been my prayer, that I/we, all have a deeper understanding of how God really loves us. If we can grasp how wide, long, high and deep He will go and invest in us right now, today, when cancer comes, when tough financial times hit, when relationships are hard, Paul’s writes we will have the ability to receive the power and fullness of life that is promised in this scripture!

I believe we ALL need to have a deep understanding of this kind of love and experience the fullness that it can bring. We will never be sure of what tomorrow will has in store, life is a journey, it is a mystery, it is joy, an adventure, and sometimes brings sadness and heart ache. But what we can be sure of is God’s depth and his Word’s promises to us!

Thank you to all that have been praying for, hoping with, and loving us!!

Blessings for your Heart’s song. Maryann
