Do you know how CRAZY about YOU God is?

With all the whirlwind that made up yesterday I finally had time to reflect on all the day's events as I was lying in bed about to fall asleep. I had this amazing thought that I just have to share...

We have NO IDEA how crazy about us God is, seriously!!

I thought about looking at the ultrasound of my little Emily and how amazed, thrilled and awestruck I was as I seen her moving around in there. How in just a few more months little Emily will be seeing the same parents who have been looking at her already. How eventually she will learn to call me daddy and learn that she has two parents who already love her more than words could ever describe.

And then it hit me. God loves us more than any words could ever describe!

Jeremiah 1:5

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;

Before we even knew we existed God knew and loved us! That makes me flip out!

And this was all realized for me yesterday as I was staring at Emily. She doesn't even know we exist yet and here Erica and I are staring at this ultrasound seeing her and loving her to death. God seen and knew us before we were born just like Jeremiah says above. I just couldn't help but picture God in heaven sitting there looking at us through something like an ultrasound before we even knew we existed!

And that drives me crazy!

Wow. I have a whole new mindset as to how I see our God thanks to little Emily. How loving our God really is and I wonder what His thoughts were as he seen us before we even knew we existed.

I'm sure he was just as excited and thrilled about all of us as Erica and I are about Emily and that blows me away. To think that God was so excited about us, WOW!

Do you have any idea how CRAZY God is about YOU?


  1. True... I don't think we really understand... and isn't it amazing? I'm reading Captivating right now and I read this today.. "God yearns to share a life of beauty, intimacy, and adventure with us." I love that word... yearns... he longs to us... he desires us... he is CRAZY about us!!!!!

  2. What insight Joe with seeing Emily before she knows you... WOW!
