We recognize that Jesus demonstrated sacrificial love for us by dying for our sins, making possible our forgiveness and restoring us to fellowship with the Father. Yet we often fail to realize that Christ's love goes even beyond the cross.
Everything we do, don't do, face, and don't face is touched by God's continuing love. Everything about us hinges on love because of God, who is love, created us in His image (1John 4:8, 16). Because God loves, he gives us blessings and allows us to share them. When we pray and are told to wait, it's because He loves us and knows we need time to grow.
When we have choices that can be overwhelming our God shows us that we need to depend on His guiding love. Until we come to understand and believe at our deepest, innermost level that God is love, we will struggle with trusting Him, yielding to Him, and serving Him wholeheartedly.
While we are to live in faith and hope, our most important dwelling place is God's Love!!
