God’s ultimate grace deserves our ultimate love. How can we respond to the height and width and depth of God’s immeasurable love? In “Giving God Ultimate Love: Over-The-Top Mega Love ”, ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-7335652-0-2; $7.99, eBook, 978-1-7335652-1-9) author Bukky Agboola coins the phrase “over-the-top mega love” to characterize the many ways we can show God our love. Through the use of biblical examples—Abraham, David, Deborah, Anna, Elizabeth, Zachariah, and even the unnamed, poor widow–Agboola provides guidance and encouragement that even amidst adversity, we can express mega love to our faithful, loving Father and be richly blessed as a result.
Here’s a great recipe I got from one of our Pastors to share with you. Make a determined effort to have a happy new day each day of this new year even when things are super tough. Before you know it, 365 of mostly those kinds of days or 366 for a leap year and boom! You’ve had a Happier Year for Real!
Make it Happen this Year! All Will Be Well. Remember recipes are for sharing, so share this page to encourage someone this Year. A happy new day to you each day of this year and beyond!
“This is the Day the Lord has made, We Will Rejoice and be Glad in it” Psalm 118:24 (NLT)
“God is the only one with an eternal supply of everything we need. It was a wise move on the widow’s part to entrust herself completely to God because by transferring what could not sustain her in the long term into the hands of Jehovah Jireh (the God who provides), her little became much. Her meager resources became consecrated when she connected them to God, and He could now take over the full responsibility of providing for her. God could now also greatly multiply what she had entrusted to Him because God responds to our faith with extravagant blessings in extraordinary ways. He blesses us back with far more than we can ever give to Him, and the most important lesson to draw from this woman’s example is this: rich or poor, those who love truly are generous givers!
At this point, we need to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that we don’t need to depend solely on our own willpower or determination to love or please God in any way. All our help comes from the Lord, and every new move of God begins with God. If we simplify our lives and yield ourselves to God, then we allow Him to accomplish His purpose in and through us. We can do nothing solely with our own strength; we need to align ourselves with God’s word. We learned earlier that we cannot genuinely learn to love others without first receiving love from God:
“My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” (Ps. 121:2, NLT).
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Cor. 13:14, NLT).”
