WOYWW: Him who Loves Us Best

I am playing with my planner. 
My desk today is out in the garden with Oreo.

“Even now, says the Lord, return to me with your whole heart...” Joel 2:12

For Valentine’s day, shouldn’t we celebrate the greatest love story that makes all our love stories possible? Whatever we do, we can never run far enough, or be beyond the reach of God’s love. 

“...neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:39

I am reminded of Francis Thompson’s poem, “The Hound of Heaven”, which begins: “ I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways Of my own mind; and in the midst of tears...” 

And then ends: ““Ah, fondest, blindest, weakest, I am He whom thou seekest! Thou drawest love from thee, who drawest me!” 

I know a man who tried to run from God. He tried to escape from the Lord by taking up Law and other diversions. Today he is a priest. 

Will we give our heart to Him who loves us best? 

Joining the lovely Julia Dunnit for a 
peek at desks and projects!
I find a lot of inspiration
visiting my friends here:
