Well, I was hoping that I would get more of a response. I was serious when I asked, how do you feel loved by God? What specifically fills you up, that only God can give you?
I've been thinking more about it. Infact within 24 hours of writing my last blog, I was sitting down praying and reading my bible and I laid my head down on it. When I did, I felt such comfort and I remembered how I do have one way that I feel tangible love from my Daddy.
It is through the Bible.
I am not lying when I say, that I literally can lay my head on the bible and feel comforted by Him. If I am feeling nervous, anxious or fearful at night, I will sleep with it. Many times, I put it under my pillow or hold it tight as though it were a teddy bear. Somehow, it makes me feel closer to Him.
My bible is really hard too. It's one of those Life Application bibles, the NIV version, hard back. It isn't soft at all. And yet, in some of my most sleepless nights, it has felt warm and comfortable to me.
I know there is more ways to feel the love from Him. I am going to find out how. I need Him, more then I need anything else. I need His love to fill me up.
