Anyway, here's one of my treasures from yesterday. I had never heard this passage and I love the part that I italicized:
"O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will life up my hands. "
How beautiful is that?!!! "your love is better than life." It truly is!! God's love is extravagant, never-ending, and unconditional. It is greater than any love our earthly father can ever lavish on us. How good our God is!!
