About the Deepest Love
I named this site The Deepest Love with the words from this hymn in mind:
O, the deep, deep, love of Jesus,
vast unmeasured, boundless, free.
Rolling as a mighty ocean
in it’s fullness over me.
Through hard times and the kindness of God I now know the love and joy we desire – The Deepest Love – is found in God alone (1 Jn 4:7). I lived as a Christian for thirty-two years before I discovered the walls in my heart preventing me from experiencing His love. The walls came down, His love flooded in, and I met a God joyously and passionately full of love for me – foolish, frightened, me. The words of this hymn finally made sense.
Now I am passionate about inspiring people to tear down any wall preventing God’s love from flooding their hearts with joy. Here at The Deepest Love I will be working to help each of us to see God more clearly, so that we desire to draw closer to him, and to identify and tear down any wall preventing that intimacy. I will share my own story – both the difficulties and the joys – so that we can journey together; I will be looking for and pointing out the movement and beauty of God in life as I live it; and I will talk about walls in our hearts that prevent us from knowing His love more deeply.
