Do you know how much He Loves You? He loves you with an everlasting love

Do you know how much He loves you? Do you really understand God’s love for you?

His love for you is indescribable
 its immeasurable
 it’s undeniable

Do you know that He knows everything about you? He cares deeply for you! He has each of your tears counted out. “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book

He knows your thoughts and your motives
He listens to you, He watches you
He commissions His mighty angels to protect you
He stops to hear your prayers
He made a way for you to go before His throne in the Heavens
His thoughts of you outnumber the sands on the seashore!

How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
    They cannot be numbered!
 I can’t even count them;
    they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
    you are still with me! ps 139

   Imagine picking up a handful of sand- each tiny sand on the seashore represents a thought the Lord has of you- thoughts of peace, and not evil. Sometimes we can get all wrapped up in our rituals and works that we don’t stop to consider the Lord’s love for us. His Grace, Mercy, protection and loving-kindness surround us. Stop for a moment and consider this amazing love. Your God, your Savior, and your Creator reached down from heaven to free you from bondage, to set you free, and give you life. He leans down from His throne above the earth to hear your cries. He has a book of remembrance with your life and words written in them: “and the Lord listened to what they said. In his presence, a scroll of remembrance was written to record the names of those who feared him and always thought about the honor of his name” Malachi 3:16

He knew you before you were born and chose the generation you would live in: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; . and:From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries.” He even chose the year, the generation and the location you would live”

God’s love for you is immeasurable:   The bible tells us that the Love Christ has for you is beyond all our knowledge- it’s too great for us to understand “how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is….it is too great to understand fully” We know He has this love for us because “He laid down his life for us”, and “gave himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God”. God’s love is shown and evident to us because “God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” ; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us

HE CHOSE YOU– How amazing is that!  Scripture tells us that we know Him because He chose us .You are chosen. Luke 10:22My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Matthew 11:27My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him John 15:16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name

HE MADE YOU WORTHY WHEN WE WERE UNWORTHY: He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God His Father. I am amazed at God’s Mercy and Grace, making us worthy of coming before His throne, fully cleansed- making my sins disappear as far as the east is too the west! He presents us “Holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight” by the blood of the cross.  God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.  And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation.  For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.  So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God”

He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father.

Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

In Him we exist : “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us.  For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ And; “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  Gal 2:20

JESUS SAID IT; THAT SETTLES IT: ” The Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God

HE CALLS YOU HIS CHILDREN: We know He loves us because He calls us  “his children, and that is what we are!” And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father and the Lord says “ I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters

Psalm 139

He knows when you are sitting down and when you stand up
He knows your thoughts from afar off
He understands your path and the words you speak because He made your heart
He knows every word on your tongue
He protects you from evil
You can never hide from Him, even in the darkness, in the seas, or in the heavens
He strengthens you and Hold you up
He made all your inward parts and covered you in your mother’s womb
Although you were made in secret, He watched over you and saw you
His eyes saw you before you were ever born
He has all your days written before there was even one
He thinks of you and how precious are His thoughts of you
He is with you when you awaken
He searches your heart and knows your anxieties
He leads you in the way of everlasting

Love others as the Lord loves you. Forgiving with Mercy, treating your neighbor with love, compassion for others, being patient with the faults of others and always ready to lay down your life as Christ laid down His life for you. I hope and pray that you understand this great mystery that Christ died for you, and that God sent His only Son to take your place so you might live eternally with Him remembering always; He created you to be Holy, as He is holy.

Rolling Stones Boycott – More retailers join ; take a stand against ungodliness, our voices are heard

Source: CVS and Walgreens boycotting magazine **UPDATE** The Associated Press now reports that Tedeschi Food Stores, Roche Bros. groceries, and Stop & Shop have joined the boycott of Rolling Stone‘s “Bomber” issue. The Huffington Post also reports that Rite Aid and Kmart have both told them they will not sell the latest edition of the magazine. Newest update: Time Magazine

Rolling Stone magazine is facing an outcry of nationwide proportions over its controversial decision to put Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its front cover.Describing the iconic magazine’s latest issue a ‘total disgrace’ Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said that if the magazine had wanted to choose anyone for its iconic cover, it should have been the survivors or the first responders.

Indeed, MBTA Transit Officer Richard ‘Dic’ Donahue, who almost died when the Tsarnaev brothers allegedly shot him in a firefight days after the marathon attacks said, ‘I cannot and do not condone the cover of the magazine’ ‘Why are we glorifying a guy who created mayhem in the city of Boston?’ Retorted Menino, before adding that he would be letting publisher Jann Wenner know exactly what he thinks of the decision by the respected monthly magazine.

‘Why would we want to heroize this guy? He’s a terrorist. We don’t want him in our neighborhoods. We don’t want him on magazines. We don’t want him anywhere,’ Menino said to WHDH.

The cover of August’s edition is a self-taken portrait of Tsarnaev, 19, in which he looks more like a rock star than a terrorist. He is identified simply as ‘The Bomber’ and the article promises to explain ‘how a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam, and became a monster.’

 The use of Tsarnaev as a cover star has caused an instant backlash on social media and CVS announced on Wednesday that it would be boycotting this edition of Rolling Stone from its stores nationwide.The firm issued a statement in which it said that out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones, they would not be selling August’s publication of Rolling Stone.  Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has labeled Rolling Stone magazine’s decision to use Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as its cover a ‘total disgrace’ while Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (right) said it was in bad taste’As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones,’ the statement said. CVS is headquartered in Woonsocket, R.I. Read more
