1 Kings 15.4

how you, love, lord! what extraordinary love! truly your goodness and love is not based on who we are, your goodness and love is based on who you are! what display of grace, what display of your heart! your actions, your word, your identity is never a reaction to us and how we respond to you. you are always good, you are so much more than what we are even aware of, you are so much more than what we could think of, what has been experienced since time began, thank you for keeping us secure in you!
