Love is a Miracle - Vasti Garcia

February was a month filled with everything pink, red, and (of course) God's continued love for us! Everyday we get to experience God's deep love for us through nature, family, friends, mentors and community members. We used this month as another reason to make an emphasis on LOVE.

We had discussions on the topic of love. What does love look like? What does love make us feel? Who is love? Why do people we love the most hurt us the most? Are we worthy of love? The questions were endless.

So many of us have a distorted view of love because of trauma we've experienced. However, truth lies in scripture. We find in 1 John 4:16,” And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” Powerful truth. 

We mediated on the worship song “Lean Back” by Maverick City Music (take moment to listen if you haven’t heard it before). The lyrics carry deep meaning of resting in Gods loving arms. 

I will lean back in the loving arms
Of a beautiful Father
Breathe deep and know that He is good
He's a love like no other

You will never leave
Your love sustaining me
Before I even knew
What love was

PRAY

Will you continue to pray with me for...

  • ...our students who are experiencing depression. Pray that they will encounter the presence of God in their bedroom when their world gets dark in their mind. 
  • ...my intern, Diego. Pray that his time with us will be filled with growth and passion for God's Kingdom.

Thank you for believing with me in all that the Lord is doing in Bellevue with our students!
