  1. Aliza,
    I am always amazed at how God confirms His Truth to us…even if it means (literally) putting it in our arms. What a beautiful moment when you could look at your nephew and say sincerely that you will always love him EVEN IF HE NEVER CHOOSES TO LOVE YOU BACK. What a powerful life lesson that God IS love and he can’t deny Himself. Even if we never love Him…His love for us remains. And, His love is unfathomable…it stretches beyond the vast ocean that we gaze at in amazement. I was deeply touched by your post this am.!!
    Blessings and LOVE to you,
    Bev xx

    • It is such a powerful lesson! I am so deeply grateful for it. Thanks so much, Bev!

  2. Great post!! I agree – so often we cannot understand God’s love for us because we as humans are not capable of the same great abounding love that He has for us, we can only see it in glimpses through our relationships with others. If we could see and love others with God’s love, what a better world we would have. Great post (and you make me want to go to Cape Cod this summer!).

    • You should go to Cape Cod — it’s so beautiful! And yes yes yes, what a better world that would be.

  3. Loved this post, Aliza.I’ve felt both kinds of small too. And when I really stop to consider the magnitude of God’s amazing love for me, for us, I’m in awe, feeling small and unworthy. And yet, he still loves me. He calls me His daughter. I’m learning that, God’s love is so much deeper than I understand. I’m trying to learn to walk in the depths of His love. 🙂

    Your post got me thinking today, Aliza. Thank you for that. 🙂

    • Ohhh thinking about that makes me feel so small too, but precious. Deeply, deeply precious.

  4. The past couple of days haven’t been the best for me. When I feel like all hope is lost…I can feel God’s arms holding me tight. He’s got me. Helping me to feel the love that I so desperately desire. His love is always there. ..all I have to do is just reach out to Him. Thank you Aliza for this post.

  5. Aliza,
    I am awestruck at God’s infinite love toward me. For a long time I felt small & unworthy. Not good enough to be loved. But God in His wisdom chooses to love us unconditionally. Now looking out over the mountains and into the sky I can sense His love for me.
    Blessings 🙂
