God’s Extravagance

1 John 3:1a  Consider the kind of extravagant love the Father has lavished on us – He calls us children of God! It’s true; we are His beloved children.

U.S. National Park Service Saint Mary Lake

We’ve just returned from a trip through Glacier National Park and Yellowstone. It’s some of the most extraordinary landscape God has created.

Throughout Montana I saw something else. At the edges of some fields across the state there were crosses.

Seeing those crosses reminded me that no matter how amazingly beautiful the scenery is, God’s love, shown through His sacrificial death, is even more wonderful.

In the midst of the mental illness journey, the marvels and wonders of God’s creative power reminds me of the comfort and stability of God’s extravagant love.
