You are loved.
“Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” (Psalm 136:26)
Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Many times, life seems to be a cycle of rewards and punishments. The extreme side of good and bad news. It is like the waves of the ocean, we see them as either IN or OUT. We forget about the in between, the beauty of each ripple.
We get caught up with the things we do, our achievements and successes or worse our failures and setbacks instead of believing in who we are. But those things cannot pull us apart or disconnect us from God’s love. He loves all His children and that’s who we are.
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!.” (1 John 3:1)
God’s love is always with us and for us, no matter what our performance looks like. He doesn’t love us more or less according to our achievements, check lists or how we compare ourselves to others.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10 )
There is no limit or scale of God’s love for us. He Loves us unconditionally and it endures forever. He loves you however and wherever you find yourself.
He loves the mum who just can’t find that time to be alone with Him. He loves the teenager who has difficulty knowing who He really is. He loves the outgoing child, the one who won’t sit still and the one who can’t speak a word.
He loves the creative and artistic one, just as much as the intellectual and sporty one. He loves those who can write beautiful poems and prayers and he loves those who can’t. He loves those who are quiet, those who vocalise and those who sing. He loves the parents who are present and those who are absent. His love is for us all.
There is no measure or limit to how great and infinite God’s love is. He sees the heart of those who are bed bound, wheelchair bound and those who sprint or dance.
It is not the doing that matters, it is the being. Every person is a living being created and loved by the omnipresent father of all. Don’t limit your perception of how loved you are by what you do or don’t do, can or can’t do. Open your heart to receive His gift of grace and love.
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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.”
