SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 – KNOW THE LOVE – Can you truly grasp the amount of love that the Lord has for you personally? I told Leo goodbye this morning, gave him a kiss, and headed for the front door. He called me back into the room and said, “Stacey, I am in so much pain. Know how much I love you.” As I was driving to work, these words kept going through my mind, over and over again. (When your husband is very ill, words like these are never taken lightly.) The words “Know how much I love you” permeated my being. As my thoughts were towards My Groom, My Heavenly Groom placed a picture in my mind’s eye, and this is what I saw – The Lord nailed to the cross saying, “Stacey, I am in so much pain. Know how much I love you.” That was an incredible moment and it’s so true! As our Lord hung on the cross, He was in the most incredible amount of pain, and He was saying to each one of us, “(Your Name) I am in so much pain. Know how much I love you.” Picture Him in your mind’s eye saying those exact words to you. Ephesians 3:19 To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (NKJ) I John 3:16 By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. (NKJ) Your Groom Loves You!
