Here are some snatches of things I've been reading and hearing lately.

"God sees hearts like we see faces." ~ George Herbert

"It needs to be said that a world of confusion results from trying to believe without obeying!" ~ A.W. Tozer in Mornings with Tozer (June 20)

"The God who deserves our fellowship and communion is not hard to please, although He may be hard to satisfy. He expects from us only what He has Himself supplied. When He must chasten us, He even does this with a smile -- the proud, tender smile of a Father who is bursting with pleasure over an imperfect son who is coming every day to look more and more like the One whose child he is! ~ A.W. Tozer in Mornings with Tozer (June 21)

"Concentrate on keeping in step with Me, instead of trying to anticipate My plans for you. If you trust that My plans are to prosper you and not to harm you, you can relax and enjoy the present moment." ~ Sarah Young in Jesus Calling (June 18)

God's Love for you is based on:
Who God is -- Love (I John 4:16)
When God is -- always; everlasting (Psalm 90:2)
How God is -- always faithful and kind, His love enduring (1 Chronicles 16:34)
Why God is -- to be all-in-all (I Corinthians 15:28)
Prior to you -- before you were conceived God already loved you (Ephesians 1:3-4)
Despite you -- in spite of you (Romans 5:8)
All for you -- God's promises are all "yes" (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Inseparable from you -- nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:28-39)
God's love is NOT dependent on you or your achievements!
~ Pastor Patrick Vance, Sunday message, June 17, 2011

(now, that's good news!)
