You Are Loved
My Lovely One,
There you are. Do you mind if I slide in next to you? I can see the hesitation in your eyes. I can hear the questions racing through your mind.
“How does He really feel towards me?”
“Does He really think I am beautiful?”
“Would He do it all again, just for me?”
If you will quiet your mind for just a moment, you will hear my heart beating. Can you hear it? It beats loudly, fiercely and nonstop just for you. I know that it is often hard for you to comprehend My love. Let me remind you of just a few of the ways that I love you:
I love you with an everlasting love.
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness. (Jeremiah 31:3)
Nothing will ever separate you from my love.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
I sent my only Son to die so that you might live.
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
There are many more ways that I reveal my love for you in My Word. I want you to take some time this week and search out all the different ways that I prove my affection for you. Remember that my words are truth. I do not lie.
On those days when you feel unsure of my love, I want you to sit back, close your eyes and place your hand on your heart. Then take a deep breath. As you exhale, you will feel your heart swelling underneath your hand. That is my heart expanding with unending love for you.
