BIG BIG LOVE

Sometimes when my kiddo is acting up, whenever I start to feel GUILT-a bit detached or like my moments with my kiddo has not gone so great, I like to ask my son Benjamin-

"How much does Mommy love you?"
And his answer is- "Mommy loves me BIG-BIG."
And then we smile and in that moment, we can move on with our day with LOVE.

Don't forget! God loves YOU- BIG-BIG!
I love that word- and I DO LOVE my boy "BIG-BIG".
Is he not the CUTEST thing EVER?!

Sweet friend, YOU are loved- "BIG-BIG".
More than you can ever, EVER imagine, by a God who is BIGGER than_____ (insert whatever you are struggling with right now)...

You know what I can insert right there?
Struggles with overeating, Depression, Marriage concerns, Parenting battles, Financial struggles, Hard healing that needs to be done.
Pretty heavy stuff....But God is BIGGER.

His BIGNESS is BIGGER than the BIGGEST BIG!
(sounds like a Dr. Seuss title, huh? ha!)

Right now, this day, Wednesday, "hump day", how are you doing?
I really am asking you with sincerity of heart...how are you doing? Are you okay? Are you at peace? Do you know how special you are? Do you know how precious you are? Do you know that God counts every hair on your head and cares about every detail of your life?

Can you stop right now and KNOW that you are loved "BIG-BIG" :)

Are you tired? Are you feeling like you are misunderstood, alone, forgotten? Are you frustrated with life? Are you unsure of many things? Are you in pain; emotional, mental, physical, spiritual? Are you feeling DONE? Yes, Yes, Yes and YES.
I can feel ALL of these things throughout my day at any point in time...you?

Sometimes I think that God is so far, so out of reach and so UN-present in my life. Why? Because like my son- I make mistakes, I sin, I fight my Heavenly Daddy, I want what I want when I want it, I have tantrums (yes, I really do...:) and I NEED for Him to stop and ask me-

"Liz- how much does your Daddy love you?"
And I need to say- "My Daddy loves me 'BIG-BIG'"

And that even in my place of unsettled, broken, messy living, His BIG-BIG love is more than ENOUGH for me. DO you believe that for yourself? I DO. I REALLY, REALLY DO. Hold onto that truth girlfriend and remember that He HOLDS ONTO YOU when you feel too weak to hold on. Amen?!

There is NOTHING, NOTHING IN THIS WORLD that can SEPARATE ME from the LOVE OF MY GOD- NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING.

Romans 8:38-39
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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."

You are loved - "BIG-BIG"....
