So, the other day, I was discussing with my dad where I would be going during my free travel during the mission trip this summer. For those of you who are curious, I am going to Amsterdam, Holland & Vienna, Austria. Whenever I told my dad I was going to Amsterdam, he freaked! He went on to say "Do you realize what Amsterdam is known for?" Of course, I do. But that is definitely not what I am going for. As my dad continued to freak out, he said "If something happens to you, I will spend the rest of my life looking for you." Those words hit me hard, in a good way. My dad - my protector - vowed to me that if something were to happen to me while I was overseas, he would spend the REST OF HIS LIFE looking for me. I wanted to bawl my eyes out right then. (I quickly reassured him that I was only going to be there for a day; it helped a little.) You may be wondering why I wanted to bawl my eyes out. The kind of love my dad was expressing in those few words is a deep kind of love. My dad loves me so much that he would spend the rest of his life looking for me if something were to happen to me. (Which I'm sure it won't and I'll come back to the states in 1 piece.) That is amazing love that is hard to describe. I am so so blessed to have a "daddy" like him. I love him so much. :)
However, this is not the point of this blog.
My point is:
If my dad loves me so much to "look for me for the rest of his life", I can only begin to imagine how much my God loves me. He is love is deeper, unfailing, amazing, and true. I am so blessed to have a God like Him.
Can I get an amen?
