The Greater the Love-the Greater the Pain:

There is an interesting thing with love you see. It seems the more you love someone, the greater the capacity to bring pain upon that person-intentional or not. Everything seems intensified-the good, and the bad.

"How deep the Father's love for us....
How vast beyond all measure..."

These two lines taken from one of my favorite songs really do cause us to dwell upon the great love of God. We often hear about the love God has for us. Yet as I think about it, it seems with this unbelievable amount of love has come an unbelievable amount of pain. Each time we intentionally or unintentionally leave the Lord-deny His love, or ignore His voice.

Father, forgive me for those moments of pain I have brought to Your heart. Thank you for that vast love that will never leave. Help me to love much-though it may hurt at times.

When I occasionally blow up at Jim, and he wonders why, the only thing I can think of is that he's safe. He still loves me, in spite of my tirades. Sort of like God.
