In a recent issue of his One Minute Uplift newsletter, Rick Ezell writes: “Know that God’s love touches every part of our (lives). Nothing—no calling or circumstance, no adversity or advancement, no pain or promotion, no status or station—escapes the brush strokes of God’s love. God’s love bleeds into every fabric and fiber of our lives. We can’t escape His love.
“We are like the little boy who got separated from his mother in the mall. He was looking around for his mommy and getting scared. He began to cry because everyone was a stranger, and everything looked so confusing, and every store was packed, and he didn’t have his mommy. (Suddenly), his mother found him and picked him up. His eyes began to dry, not because his surroundings were changed, but because of whose arms he was in.
“When you have someone who loves holding you, it doesn’t matter anymore what everyone else does or what the circumstances are or what the future holds. When you are in the arms of a loving God, when you have been consumed with His love, you know you are OK.”
