The Daily Grace - Limitless Love



One popular hymn has a lyrics that goes like this: "Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade; to write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry; nor could the scroll contain the whole through stretched from sky to sky." These words are part of an ancient Jewish poem and were once found on the wall of a patient's room in an insane asylum. Also, Frederick M. Lehman was so moved by the poem that he desired to expand on it. In 1917, while seated on a lemon box during his lunch break from his job as a laborer, he added the words of the first two stanzas and the chorus, completing the song "The Love of God".

The psalmist describes the comforting assurance of God's love in Psalm 36: "Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens" (v. 5, ESV). Regardless of the circumstances of life - whether in a moment of sanity in a mind otherwise muddled with confusion or during a dark time of trial - God's love is a beacon of hope, our ever-present, inexhaustible source of strength and confidence. You are loved with everlasting love.
