We can’t imagine all of the sacrifices made on our behalf. Even if we knew, we’d never comprehend the magnitude of them. The 23rd Psalms is a great reminder of how God finds ways to show us love and to enhance our human experience. A mother acted on her heart’s impulse and brightened her daughter’s heart. God acted on his heart’s impulse when sending us Jesus, and changed the entire meaning of true love. I can’t help but love the Lord for that amazing sacrifice. Imagine how rewarding life would be if we walked in the power of God’s impulsive actions on our behalf. We would be as jubilant as young Chavon, staring at life with new courage and faith. Angela’s love for her daughter was enough to lead her heart to the sacrifice. The same is true for us as God’s beloved creations. When it comes to our soul care, who and what we are does not matter to God; the fact that God loves us is enough.
