I choose this day
to drown in Your love, God
instead of drown in my problems
I stand waiting
for Your showers of grace
to cover my whole self
You pour out Your liquid love
as if there were no water restrictions
and in turn
I will pour into those who know not

And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love.
– Romans 5:5
There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!
– Romans 5:3-5 (MSG)
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
– 1 John 3:1 (NIV)
