The strength of the Father's love

I have been meditating on the Father's love this week and Octavius Winslow says it so well in Morning Thoughts: 
Behold the strength of Immanuel's love. Come, fall prostrate, adore and worship Him. Oh, what love was His! Oh the depth! Content not yourself with standing upon the shores of this ocean-enter into it, drink largely from it. It is for you, if you but feel your nothingness, your poverty, your vileness; this ocean is for you. It is not for angels, it is for men. It is not for the righteous, but for sinners. Then drink to the full from the love of Jesus. Do not be satisfied with small supplies. Take a large vessel to the fountain. The larger the demand, the larger the supply. The needier, the more welcome. The viler, more fit. ~ June 26
This ocean of love found in the cross is for us today.
We are confidant of the Father's heart of love... We are still waiting on this baby (which if it doesn't come by itself, we'll consider having my water broken tommorrow) knowing that God has a perfect plan.
