Do you know that there is someone who loves you more than life itself? Do you know that there is someone who was willing to lay down His life for you? Someone who died, so that you could live. Someone that loved you so much that He was willing to do the unthinkable, and sacrifice Himself just to know you. He isn’t a daydream or a make believe friend, but someone who is forever mindful of you. That someone is a man name Jesus. His name is a beautiful name that oozes with great love and compassion. Do you know that Jesus loves you? Such a simple phrase, yet its true weight seems almost too heavy to grasp correctly. Love seems to be such a worn out word that is tossed from people’s lips like waves being tossed by the wind. But the difference in His love, and humanities love is that it has no conditions. He loves you just because.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. John3:16
His love hopes to pull you into Him. His love desires to comfort you on the worst of days. His love comes to tell you who you are, when the world you live in tries to tell you who you are not. His love aims to pick you up off the floor, when life has knocked you to the ground. His love pursues you. It chases you down, and never gives up until it hears, “yes”. His love calls you to salvation. A place of strength and wholeness. A place of everlasting life with the Creator of heaven and earth. His love is the purest of its kind. It seems almost fake, written for a nursery rhyme.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance”. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Yet there is nothing fictitious about this love…NO! He will love you, and never leave you no matter the mistake. He will never lie to you, or hurt you. He will never make you feel less than, or abandoned. On the contrary, He will cheer you on as you race toward the mark of the calling He has placed on your life. Have you ever experienced this place of wonder? It’s breathtaking at its best. Have you ever told Him yes? Truly said yes? Yes to His will, yes to His way, yes to what He needs of you. Did you know that your yes will open doors that no degree can unlock? That your yes will mend wounds you never thought could be healed. That your yes will touch your soul, and resurrect it to life.
Whether we know it or not, our souls need Him desperately. Like the air that we breathe, we need Him. Like the water we drink, we need Him. Like food satisfies our bellies, He satisfies our souls.
He loves you, and sees you as beautiful and good. He crafted you with His hands, leaving His fingerprints etched onto your soul. He thinks of you often when no one else is.You never leave His mind because you are sown into His heart.
“How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, You are still with me”! Psalm 139:17-18
Draw close to Him, and experience a love that is beyond comprehension and comparison. Let Him love you. Open your heart, and let Him in. I promise it’s worth it. He won’t love you, and leave you. There is nothing you could ever do to make Him pull away from you.
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord”. Romans 8:38-39
I pray that you let your guard down, and let Him in. There are places that have been closed off from Him that He needs access to. He is not scared of your issues, and you cannot run Him away with your scars. He loves you unconditionally, from now until the end of eternity. Let Him love you like only He can; He knows what you are in need of.
I love you guys so much! I pray that this touches your soul.
God Bless you all!
