Feeling the love?

Have you ever felt that flutter inside your stomach that says someone loves you? You read about it all the time in romance books, but are the warm fuzzies real? I can honestly say it was only in the last couple of years that I felt it.

There wasn’t a lot of love in my house when I was growing up. We put the “dys” in dysfunctional. Later when my ex-husband said it, I always felt it was something he should say because we were married. That certainly wasn’t his fault, it was mine.

The Bible says that God loves us. In Psalm 117:2, it reads: For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.

One day driving down the road, talking to God, about something good He made happen. I thanked Him and told Him I loved Him. Seconds later, I felt that flutter. I knew it was God telling me he loved me back. And I believed it.

That was the first day I really knew I was loved. I’ve felt it a couple of times since then. If God loves me, then that means I’m special. What an awesome feeling.

I want you to sing this song, just keep repeating the words until you feel God’s love too “It’s a great world after all. God loves me after all.” to the tune of “It’s a Small World”. Now the tune will stay in your head the rest of the day. Ask anyone who’s ever been to Disney World.
