We couldn't get enough, even if we tried

We couldn't get enough, even if we tried!

I am speaking of how we could never find enough containers/buckets/bottles to store the love of God inside. God's grace is so abundant and massive that even if we tried to capture it or bottle it, we would fall hopelessly short.

"....we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!" - Romans 5:5 (The Message)

So, if God is so generous and chooses to give us so much, why do we limit God? 
Why do we act as if God has come to his sell-by-date?
Why have we stopped believing in his goodness?
Why have we closed the lids of our hearts to his generous love and grace?

Perhaps we have lost sight of how Awesome God is? Perhaps we have been so tired and down-trodden of late that we believe God has moved on from us?

May I take this opportunity to remind you that God is still present. He has not gone anywhere! 
So, gather your containers and allow the Spirit of God to fill your heart again.

Living in Grace
