Unrestricted Ecstasy

This year I have been using JESUS CALLING by Sarah Young along with my NLT One Year Bible for my devotions each today. Today the reading was about God's love for me...and you.

There is no force in the universe as powerful as My Love. There is no limit to My Love; it fills all of space, time, and eternity. Now you see through a glass, darkly, but someday you will see Me face to Face. Then you will be able to experience fully how wide and long and high and deep is My Love for you. If you were to experience that now, you would be overwhelmed to the point of feeling crushed. But you have an eternity ahead of you, absolutely guaranteed, during which you can enjoy My Presence in unrestricted ecstasy. For now, the knowledge of My loving Presence is sufficient to carry you through each day.

The older I get, the more I long for Heaven. Some days I don't feel very loved by anyone, even the Father. I feel crushed, but not because of God's love. The thought of unrestricted ecstasy in His Presence sounds mighty good. In the meantime, I'm grateful that He carries me through each day.
