Isaiah 64:6. Read it. Digest it. I will help.
This passage talks about all of the good deeds that we do being compared to “filthy rags”, or the literal interpretation “menstrual garments”.
That’s a pad.
That’s a tampon.
Why? As I read this passage, I was guided into deeper thought and interpretation. In order to fully understand this, you must be able to fully understand God’s love. Which, no one does, so we should just give up here and be offended at God’s disgusting comparison to our hard work and efforts. NO.
We may not be able to fully understand and comprehend God’s love for us, but, it’s imperative in our walk with God that we always seek to be enlightened more and more.
God loves you more than you could ever comprehend. He loves you so much in fact that He uses all His power to persuade you to draw closer to Him in your pathetically short time on Earth. He loves you so much that, even though He has complete and total power to MAKE you love Him, He leaves that decision up to you. He wants your REAL love, nothing forced. God loves you so much that He took time to know you before you were even fleshly created. God loves you so much that He created a Son of His own, raised Him to live a perfect life, and led Him to be slain for the sins you have committed.
God’s love for you is unending, incomparable, and unquantifiable.
Body Paragraph One.
Isaiah 64:6. What? How does this have to do with God loving you? In all actuality, crazy lady writing this blog, this verse could easily exhibit how I am not good enough for God, and He doesn’t appreciate my efforts. How is that love?
Interesting you should ask that, avid blog reader of mine.
Body Paragraph Two.
God loves you. It’s true.
He also loves every other creation of His.
He’s not looking for you to work your volunteer magic and fill a record number of soup bowls for the homeless.
He’s not looking for you to feel good about air miles to every country on Earth to build homes, churches, and schools.
He’s not looking for you to get your jollies from eating with the outcast.
He is looking for you to see what He sees.
He is looking for you to be His hands and feet.
He is looking for you to love what He loves.
It’s not all about how it makes you feel.
Body Paragraph Three.
It’s about love. God’s love. For everyone. Everything.
P.S. I LOVE YOU.
