Any regular church going christian might have heard about God’s love a zillion times.
One of our favorite verses would be:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”
I have went through this a million times before I could actually feel an inch of His love in my heart.
I was rebellious and not receptive for years and years when I finally decided to lay it all down at His feet.
Even that didn’t change things.
But one day..
I heard short message on the universe and its HUGENESS.
I am not gonna start from India. Lets start away Jump to Earth.
My beautiful BLUE earth.
But kinda really small when sitting next to Jupiter and Saturn.
Earth is just one of the 9 (or 8 as you wish) lovely daughters revolving around its star SUN.
But this is nothing. More is coming up.
Sun is just a member of the family of Milky Way.
One among the 400,000,000,000 (400 billion) stars of the flying-saucer shaped milky way.
It is estimated that there are 125,000,000,000 (125 billion) galaxies in universe.
So multiplying, there could be more or less 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (70 sextillion) stars in all. (and to think when I see a 100 of them in the night sky, I wonder the greatness of the One who placed them all there)
Among these 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars ( with 22 zeros whooo), our SUN is just one in the crowd. Just one in a really really HUGE crowd. (My own parents wont be able to spot me in a crowd of 100 people)
I am not talking about the greatness of God. Yes He is beyond all fathoms.
But I wanna talk about the GREATNESS of His love.
Repeating what I just said, even my parents cant spot me in a crowd of hundreds.
To think ( its beyond what we can possibly think, yet try)…
To think that among the 1.2 billion heads in my country
To think that among more than 7 billion of the whole world population
To think that among the tiny planets of a single star
To think that among the 400,000,000,000 (400 billion) stars of a galaxy
To think that among the 125,000,000,000 galaxies
To think that among the total of 70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars filling the universe just like dots,
To think that the one Who holds all this in His hands
To think that He still sees me!!!
Yes, to KNOW that He sees my smiles, Wipes my tears, Cares enough to walk with me, Cry with me, Share my burden, Hold my hand, Carry me
to even know the count of my hairs….
That too when I keep hurting Him everyday?????
That’s when I was……………..(there is no word apt for it…Overwhelmed wouldn’t cover it..It’s more…much more)
That’s the depth of His love!!
