I have done this often enough when dressing in a hurry. Wearing something inside out is even considered good luck by some. But for your day to be lucky, it has to be done unintentionally and not corrected if pointed out by someone. The same is said for wearing one’s socks inside out. But rather than thinking of clothing mistakes, I like thinking of the song by Bryan Adams called, “Inside Out.” The lyrics say, “I wanna know you like I know myself…..I wanna know you inside out.”
Today’s verse describes God’s love as being poured into our hearts. Any other love on this earth comes from the outside. But God’s love is unique as it reaches to the inside and fills our hearts. His love actually resides on the interior. There is nothing hidden from His love. He knows our deepest thoughts and desires. He understands all of our motivation and fear. Because He lives and loves from our hearts, He knows what makes us mad or makes us cry. There is no other love as intimate or knowledgeable. He loves me from the inside out.
How amazing that He could love me knowing all the junk in there! I can be completely honest and open with Him as He knows it all anyway. And yet, He still loves me! He does not love me because, but in spite of myself! There is only one best response to this kind of unconditional love: “Love so amazing, so divine, demands my life, my soul, my all.”
Thank you Lord, for reminding me of Your overwhelming love.
