Even Deep Truths Should Comfort Us

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us…..How Vast Beyond All Measure. 
For a long time, I was not a fan of this song.  I have no idea why – but I wasn’t.  Somewhere along the way, that changed and not only do I (very much) enjoy this song but the truth expressed is beautiful.  I posted Tuesday about trying to live loved – acknowledging Christ’s amazing love and the truth that He loves me.  And letting that fact impact me.  Every day.  In every aspect.  It is not always easy and I’m not sure we really can comprehend genuine, unmerited, unconditional love without end.  Love that is, indeed, beyond measure – and deep.

That type of deep is wonderful –  even if we cannot completely grasp it – and it comforts us.  But some things that are really deep (as in profound or intense) can have a different effect.  I have been in a Bible study this semester studying the “Mysteries of Heaven.”  It has been an interesting look at some of the glimpses about Heaven revealed in the Word.  And there are only glimpses.  There is simply much more that we do not know, or understand, about Heaven than we do know. Or that God tells us.

This can be troubling even causing anxiety for some.  It can be frustrating and I have seen the lack of details and definitive answers lead to fear and even an occasional argument.  However, the glimpses that we have been given are not to confuse us but to excite us.  To create a longing and to keep our hearts turned towards Heaven.  Without a doubt, the beauty, the wonder and all that Heaven and eternity will be is much more than we can understand or appreciate.  It is (beyond) deep.  But we can be sure of the truth that it will be more than we ever imagine.  We will not be disappointed.  Just as I am trying to let the deep truth of God’s love wash over me…..I can be confident that when the deep mysteries of Heaven are revealed, it will be amazing!

My (not so deep) thoughts on the prompt – DEEP – for this week’s Five Minute Friday.  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. The study you have been doing sounds really interesting. I think even when we don't get all our questions answered we gain a lot from going deep in exploring.
