God’s Extravagant Love // Glimpses Link Up — 29 Comments

  1. Oh how I love this! I actually (finally!) wrote about how He has been showing me His extravagant love lately… and it’s wrapped around my Sozo experience last week!

  2. Yes, I love that word “extravagant” when it comes to describing our Lord. He truly does show us His love in so many ways. Thank you for being one of those ways for me this week–through the giveaway here! I can’t wait to share the new kwikstix with my Grandkids! Blessings to you!

  3. I needed this reminder today. I woke up in a mood of poor, pitiful me not for any good reason but your words brought me out of that place. Thank you for showing us that no more how small, God’s love is extravagant,

  4. My husband took us all out for ice cream this evening at a real ice cream shop! It’s not something we do very often. None of us asked for it. He offered freely. God gave us the perfect weather to sit outside and eat ice cream (watermelon sherbet for me). 🙂

  5. Barbie, it’s true, His extravagant love is seen everywhere. I’m thankful this week for seeing a granddaughter graduate from homeschool, for a celebratory lunch with family and friends, for a phone call from a daughter, for having my mother with me, and so much more. Thanks to you for hosting and reminding us to look for His love!

  6. This reminds me of one of my all-time favorite songs, “Your Love Is Extravagant.”

    “Spread wide in the arms of Christ is the love that covers sin
    No greater love have I ever known You considered me a friend
    Capture my heart again”

    So grateful for this kind of love!

    • You know Lisa, I had that very song going through my head the entire time I was writing this post! Have a blessed week.

  7. Isn’t a joy to celebrate with those treasured young men and women this time of year? I count it a real blessing. And the fact that the school year is winding down? That is something beautiful to celebrate every spring, as its beginning again in the fall.

    • I am grateful for the end of another school year. Homeschooling while working full time is hard work. I believe the Lord is giving me a reprieve next year while we enroll our son at a charter school to get him some assistance we can’t provide. Another new season for me.

  8. I’m coming off a weekend of extravagant love — all a gift from God, and it’s such a blessing to have born witness to my son’s happiness at his wedding. Surrounded by family and friends, the entire event was crowned with joy!

  9. Barbie,
    I love how God is not stingy with His lovingkindness – He is truly extravagant. As I’ve been recuperating, I’ve seen His love in everything from how patient and caring my husband is to me to watching a colorful array of birds come to dine at the birdfeeder while I’m resting. His extravagance is all around us if we just open our eyes and look for it!!

  10. I love how God shows us his love in extravagant ways and in the little things. I love your practice of keeping track of the blessings. I’ve been doing this too in a journal and it is so encouraging to remember the many ways God shows us his love!
