Love Surpassing Knowledge

“Madison, You can grow up to be anything you want!”  My girl has natural ability that follows her everywhere. No one will be surprised if she owns a zoo, casually becomes a best selling author, joins the crew at NASA…her possibilities are endless!  

But at the age of 8, when I ask Madison to dream, it includes filling her future home with millions of stuffies and more puppies than she can count. Her mind does not consider paying the electric bill or vet bills for endless puppies or any of the other concerns that follow an adult. And that is the way it should be!

I do not sit and explain to her mortgages and the price of college and that she will lose interest in her childhood toys. I intentionally parent one more day, guiding her toward her successful future, and I let her dream. 

I pray that you may be able to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work in us, to him be the glory. Ephesians 3

And when I hear that my Father loves me that much and that, with him, I can do anything, I start dreaming about big houses and nice parties and dream  vacations. 

God takes my hand, he loves to let me dream, and he guides me one more day in this plan that is even better than I can possibly imagine. He smiles and he hugs me and he loves me.

  1. Great post! That was one of my focus scriptures in 2014. We often overlook that most important point: God is love, His love is for us, and everything after that is a breeze.

  2. Christ is preparing a big house for all who believe, John14:1-3. He is also coming back to receive us, verse 3. We must not let the things of this world or idols take control of our hearts. The things of this world are All About To Pass. If we seek first the Kingdom of God all these physical things will come including supernatural healing.

  3. This week, my task was to name persons or other things that love, as when I was a child, I was unloved, and I felt it. Now as an adult, I realize, yet it’s still difficult to accept, that there are people out there that love me, and that God loves me wholly, entirely, and completely more than my mind can even grasp, and all I have to do is let Him.
