With Arms Wide Open

God’s love is never ending. He accepts us for who we are, with all our faults, our empty promises, and our best intentions. Yes, we accomplish much, but I for one sure wish I always accomplished all that I set out to do originally.

I think the song also speaks to God’s love for us. The name of the song, With Arms Wide Open, is just how I think of God’s love for us. As written in 1 Chronicles 16:34, Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.000

Our soldiers have also fulfilled a duty with arms wide open, always doing the job their senior officer commands. The song goes on to say, “I’ll show you love, I’ll show you everything.” Again, isn’t that just how it is with God’s love? Always teaching and guiding. The same holds true with the soldier. Just think of how many pictures where you’ve seen soldiers reaching out to others who are wounded, lonely, hungry, or sick. Our soldiers of our country have much to offer us. God has given them a special gift. Be sure to thank our military for their great service and dedication.

Dear God, thanks for your constant support and the guidance you provide to us each and every day. Help us to see your guidance and act upon it in an appropriate manner. Keep our military safe from harm’s way as they carry out their duties. Please bless their families with your comfort. Help us to open our arms to opportunities to serve in your name. Amen    ~Wendy Saathoff
