O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Again Charles Spurgeon leaves me a little awestruck as I slowly read through his evening devotion tonight:

"I am sure he would not have loved me so long if he had not been a changeless Lover.  If he could grow weary of me, he would have been tired of me long before now.If he had not loved me with a love as deep as hell, and as strong as death, he would have turned from me long ago. Oh, joy above all joys, to know that I am his everlasting and inalienable inheritance, given to him by his Father or ever the earth was! Everlasting love shall be the pillow for my head this night."

I grow tired of myself at times even!  How much love can Christ's container of me hold?  More than I can imagine for sure.  I too sleep on the cloud of His everlasting love with the old hymn, "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go" on my mind.
