God’s Love Invading
I look around
And see God’s love
Every aspect of my life
And that’s a good thing
Igniting every fiber of my soul
I look behind
And see God’s mercy
Every sin-stained part of me
And that’s a saving thing
Blessing every step of my eternity
I look ahead
And see God’s faithfulness
Every one of His promises
And that’s a wondrous thing
Conquering every doubt in my being
I look above
And see God’s handiwork
Every crevice of my heart
And that’s a glorious thing
Rising up as praise in my spirit
“Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.”
I took the photo above, while on a trip with my husband to the Gulf earlier this year. This was just one of the stunningly beautiful sunsets we saw. It was as if the hues of orange and red invaded our surroundings, rendering permanent change to the landscape.
God invaded the landscape of our world with love, when He sent us the Son. Through Jesus, the Father’s love drew near, and dwelt among us. However, God never intended that love simply to come near and just surround us. He longs for Christ’s sacrificial love to invade us, in a good way.
*If you let God, His love will invade your depravity, erase your past, and rearrange your destiny. He will interrupt your plans and ignite your spirit with a song of praise.
Have you merely heard of God’s love? Will you allow His love instead to invade your life, for good?

What a beautiful capture. I am so thankful that God’s love continually invades my life. It is like a roaring tide of mercy.
Oh, I love that analogy, Joseph- a roaring tide of His mercy. And its waves roll over me daily! Blessings your way
Beautiful!! both the photograph and the poem!
Thank you, Teri. I’m still struggling somewhat when working on sorting through my photos on the computer. I have many others I would like to share, but must listen to my body. Perhaps in time. Thinking about you, especially next week. Blessings
