More Than I Imagine

Helloooo!

How are you doing?

I am doing great here. Life's been busy when March kicked in and got even busier as April falls. However, there were greattt, exciting moments, L-O-L moments, not-so-pretty moments, and of course stress moments.

Still, praise God soo much that He's in control of my life and schedule. So often, I drift away from Him. But His everlasting love never fails to find me. These happens when He allows me to go down through unwanted situations, and that is when I cry out, "God, I can't do this on my own anymore!" That's when He gently picks me up, holds my hand and continues back the journey-leading me on. Sometimes, we're like that, aren't we? Boasting when we're all strong and mighty thinking we can do it all by myself, only to forget and then remember that it is GOD WHO MADE US STRONG!



I have so much to share. One of them is my experience of God singing to me during worship. That happened just a few weeks ago on a Sunday morning. While worshipping in church during the song "You Are More Than I Imagine"... As I was singing to God and trying to mean what I was singing...

You are more than I imagine,
Greater than the heavens,
Deeper than my heart could ever dream,
You are more than any treasure,
Beyond what I could measure,
Everything that I could ever dream,
More than enough for me.


All of a sudden, God spoke in my heart, "let me sing this to you." So, I allowed God to. Listening to the worship team and the congregations sing as God sings through them, half way, I stopped. "This is crazy!! How can this be? GOD, G-O-D is singing to me?! I was trying to pull myself back. I'm the one who's supposed to worship God, not Him singing to me. This is so wrong!"

So, I continued back worshipping God. Then, God spoke to me again. "Let me sing to you." I stopped and remembered the verse:
Zephaniah 3:17(NIV) "The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."

So this time, knowing it is God who wants to sing to me, I gladly allowed Him to. And it touches my heart hearing Him singing these.. the SAME THING I sang, back at me:

You are more than I imagine,
Greater than the heavens,
Deeper than my heart could ever dream,
You are more than any treasure,
Beyond what I could measure,
Everything that I could ever dream,
More than enough for me.


I am more than God imagines. I am greater than the humungous heaven that He created. His love and thoughts of me are deeper than His heart could ever dream. He says I am more than any treasure, beyond what He could measure, I AM everything He could ever dream... I am more than enough for Him.

That is what I call Father's love. Sometimes, our earthly dad will fail us in certain ways and sometimes we think, they couldn't measure up to our expectations as dads, but bear in mind... We have a heavenly Father who adores us. Who rejoices over us. And even sings over us passionately. Jesus loves you and I so deeply; more than our hearts can imagine.

Rejoicing in His greeaatt <3,
Melissa
