Here Is Love Vast As The Ocean
Love, God by Deborah J Simmons-Roslak and Linda J Orber is a powerful book about the love that God has for us. His love is as vast as the ocean. This book will help you draw as close to God as you want to.
The book is split into short sections. Each section is sub divided into sayings from others, explaining a theory such as fear, blessings, grace etc., ‘a moment to listen’ to what God might be saying to you, guided meditation to help you press into God with the help of questions and relaxing techniques such as imagining yourself in the arms of God, and finally a space to write your thoughts.
I read this book in just a couple of sittings. However I think it would be a great study aid for Life Groups to work through a section at a time. Or also for personal reflection and growth, taking a section at a time.
Love, God is an aid to help you grow your relationship with God. It is a book about love because God is love. “Jesus… showed us what Love looked like.” How would our lives look if we let love be our motivation and our driving force?
We are our own worst critics. We sit in judgment of ourselves daily. Actually we are “the delight of Heaven.”
At times we will fear and we will doubt. We need to give our fears and our doubts to God and choose to trust Him to guide us. “We needn’t fear our next step” because God is in control.
Love, God is such a powerful read – full of simple, yet profound Godly truths. I would like to leave you with my favourite quote in the book by G.K Chesterton:
“Christianity has not been tried and found wanting: it has been found difficult and not tried.”
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
