Mommy & Me Monday is back! Spend some time coloring Princess Pristina with a little one in your life and talking about God’s love together.
PLEASE NOTE: I’ve heard of some problems with these coloring pages printing grainy or pixellated. To avoid this:
1) Click on the image you want to print
2) When the image pops up with the black background around it, look to the bottom right of the picture for a link that says “view image full size”.
3) Click on that link
4) When the full size image pops up, click on that one to save/print.
Please let me know if you still have trouble with them!
I think if we only understood how passionately God loves us, we wouldn’t find faith so difficult. He is not far away, not passively observing the lives of His children. No, He is so very close to each of us, and so passionately eager to be close to us. It is a mystery, to be loved like that. And because it is a mystery it’s easy to just not think about it – but we must! Read His words, His love letter to us in the Bible. Dwell on them. Pray and ask the Spirit to give you a greater understanding of the depth of His love. I used to feel like God just tolerated me because of Jesus’ sacrifice. But no, no no – He LOVES me, and all the joy and longing that implies. When you read the Scripture you feel it there in the words. Who else but a lover would go to the cross for His beloved? How else could God compare Jesus and the church to a bride and groom? Think of the person in your life who has loved you most and best. And consider how at times they have hurt you, even accidentally. Now consider that God loves you even BETTER than that person. Never failing or suppressing His love. If you are His, you are His beloved!
And I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
