See What Love

MY HOW BUSY WE BECOME WHEN LOSE SIGHT OF HOW GOD LOVES US.

The second is “how busy” which will result in a desire to be loved by God. I wonder if the key to either is a life with margin…a life that does not lose sight of “how” I am living at any given moment.

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. ~1John 3:1

Am I, are you, too busy to be loved by God?
