“Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”
C.S. Lewis


I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

God's thoughts towards you

The Lord is saying: Fear not, I am your mighty warrior. If you could fully comprehend ....

  • the dimensions of my love for you
  • my mighty power to save and deliver you
  • that my thoughts towards you are as numerous as the sand on the seashore and that every one of my thoughts are for doing you good.
  • that my care towards you is tireless

...... you would never be afraid again, but rejoice evermore in every circumstance. Therefore meditate on my love for you, rest in it, revel in it... for this pleases my heart.



Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.


I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.
Jeremiah 29:11.


. . He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.” (Psalm 121:1, 4)


Psalm 139: 17 God, how difficult Your thoughts are
for me [to comprehend];
how vast their sum is!18 If I counted them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand;
when I wake up, I am still with You.













The Father's Care.

The Father's care of His children
is awesome to behold;
is more splendid than the moonlight;
than all amazing stories
that were ever told.

He speaks,
"My child come close to Me,
near to my heart
and you will see,
though you traverse the world
a million times,
love like to this one can hardly find,
... as the love
I have for thee".

Catherine O'Halloran.
