Love us, God, with all You’ve got – that’s what we’re depending on. – (Psalm 33:22, MSG)
Let Your love and steadfast kindness overshadow us continually, for we trust and we wait upon You. – (Psalm 33:22, TPT)
O Eternal, drench us with Your endless love, even now as we wait for You. – (Psalm 33:22, VOICE)
Finally, this morning, after sleeping in until 5:00am, I am finally beginning to feel like it is actually Christmas break. It is strange how it takes a few days to settle in and realize that it is time to relax and decompress from the craziness that this year has held. This is the time to rest in Him, for His love floods our hearts and minds when we are intentional to seek time with the Lord. God surrounds us with His love through all things, great and small, if only we look to Him to be our Source and Supply. May we look to the Lord and depend on Him, for His love floods our hearts as we depend on Him.
O come, Lord Jesus,
Flood our hearts and minds;
With Your endless love,
And grace to be kind.
Lead us in all things,
Wherever we go;
Let Your goodness shine,
So all come to know.
Know of the wonder,
Of love that will last;
Peace never ending,
With lifelong impact.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we seek and depend on You, You flood us with Your overwhelming, never ending love. Forgive us for our lack of seeking. Teach us to lean into You in seasons of busy and times of rest. Show us Your faithfulness in the unexpected, and lead us to love those around us in ways that show Your amazing love made tangible. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek You in every season and give praise for Your amazing love. Amen.

So then it does not depend on human will or effort but on God who shows mercy. – Romans 9:16
