Why Do YOU?~ Day 6 {Captivated}

Why do you love God?

{Selah}


Have you ever just stopped and thought about that?

{Selah}


If you haven't, may I invite you to do so?


Just stop, pause, and ponder that question for a moment.



For me, I think it was God's mercy that first drew me to Him.



Mercy....so much wrapped up in such a small word.
Here are some synonyms for mercy:

blessing

charity

favor

forbearance

forgiveness

generosity

gentleness

grace

kindliness

lifesaver

softheartedness

tenderness

tolerance

Is this not the description of Jesus?!
He IS mercy!


Mercy is sooo like God

and sooo unlike me,

and there in is where my attraction to God begins.

I know how wretched I am.

I know how Holy and beautiful He is.

Yet, He loves me.





He blesses me.

He shows me His favor.

He forgives me.

He is more than generous with me.

He is so gentle with me.

He extends to me His unmeasured grace.

He is kind.

He is my lifesaver.

He is so softhearted and tender with me.

He tolerates me!

Because He is all of this and so much more, I am drawn to Him.

I am drawn to His pure, unconditional love for me.

No,

more than this.......

I. AM. CAPTIVATED~

I am a most noteworthy sinner,
but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely.I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence.
Christopher Columbus






We love Him, because He first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19

  1. This is such a great question. It's so easy for me to say, "Yeah, I love God." But then, to explain why is something totally different. Why do I love God? Because of his great love and compassion. Because no matter what, he never lets me go. Because he has a plan and all he asks is that I follow. Because I am his.
