Worship Wednesday ~ God's Lavish Love

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, 
that we should be called children of God! 
And that is what we are!
(1 John 3:1a, NIV)

I have a tendency to be really hard on myself when I feel like I have failed at something. This is a verse I return to often because it reminds me to be more gentle and forgiving of my own flaws and failures. God doesn't just love us a little bit... His love for us is LAVISH (sumptuously rich, opulent, splendid, extravagant). Wow! What a precious gift it is to be His child. 

This can be a difficult time of year during the school year. Standardized tests approach in the near future or are already happening. Spring conferences. Report cards. Not enough time to do entirely too much. It's exhausting! Wherever you are in your journey, whatever you are struggling with (personal or professional)... I pray that you feel God's LAVISH love embrace you this week and give you strength to finish the race.
