I felt this Agape love recently. I experienced it. I absorbed it. I was overwhelmed by it and I do not think I will ever be the same.

Walking amongst Christians who truly love me because of Christ’s love for them…it’s the most humbling sensation and one I hope will never, ever go away.

It has changed the way I love my husband. It has changed the way I love my children. It has changed the way I love my family and friends.

I hope and pray that anyone who reads this post has either known this love or will know it one day in their life.

God is good and He truly loves me. I know I cannot ever be worthy of that love but after experiencing it so completely, I know I want to try my best for the rest of my life.
