I have to admit, I’ve had kind of a crazy week. And I’m sure that many of you can relate!

How often do we have weeks where we can hardly think straight, let alone spend some quality time with the Lord! During those kinds of weeks, I often like to check BibleGateway.com for their verse of the day, because it’s usually a quick read that’s so encouraging and uplifting. Today was no exception! In the midst of my craziness, this is the verse I read:

“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3:17-19 NLT

I needed to hear that! It nearly brought me to tears to be reminded of how amazingly, unfathomably awesome God’s love for me truly is. And that’s enough to keep me going. I hope it uplifts you too.
