“Tokens of His Love”
This is a phrase that has come to mean a lot to me over the past several years. Here are just a couple of the things the Lord says about His love for us:
“He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”
Song of Solomon 2:4
“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
“I have loved you, saith the LORD….”
One person described God's tokens as
The unnoticed ways the Lord shows his love to us day by day.
This friend said that she asks the Lord every morning for a token of His love and then expects to find one throughout the day. Whether it is a quote, or a smile, a verse, or an encouraging conversation, a special moment with a child, an unexpected blessing, the token may be anything that reminds her of the love the Lord has for her.
Through the years I have become more mindful of the too-often-unnoticed tokens of God's love and have taken great delight in expecting them and in finding them. I encourage you to try it and see just how many “little” blessings you may have been overlooking, and then please share your experience in the comments, so I can rejoice with you in the noticing.
