Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! What a beautiful morning outside my window! The sun is shining and the yard is alive with the presence of a loving and merciful God…praise Him!
As we begin this time together today, my prayer is that we will come to truly feel and experience the everlasting love that God has just for us …a love that never walks away; but is always there for us in time of need…Amen!
You know…isn’t it amazing how a bad day can change our perspective on life? One minute we can feel high in the clouds; while the next minute, we may feel as if our heads and hearts are dragging on the ground…to the place where we even struggle to feel loved by God.
One thing I have come to see within my own life; is that God’s love is truly different than what we feel and experience here on earth. For example…in my own life, I was brought up with a love that was centered on anger and fear. In fact…there were actually times, when I felt that the only way I was going to experience love, was when someone hurt or abused me…that is, until God took me down to nothing and brought me up with a new love…a love that I could trust…a love that never walked away or hurt me…and a love that has become everlasting to this day.
There are two things that I have come to see about God’s everlasting love and the first one is that God would never create anyone, unless He knew without a doubt that He could truly love them first. Just think…you were created for reasons that you may not fully understand right now; but at the same time…God chose to create you because He longed to love you, in a way that no one else could. I have to tell you…if I didn’t have this kind of love in my life; then life wouldn’t be worth living for me; because the love that has been brought to me over the years wasn’t a trusting love…only a love that hurt me deeply.
The second thing that I have come to see and experience with God’s everlasting love; is that this love never wavers with time. In other words…it’s not a love that is here for me one day…only to walk away from me, when life gets tough…or even if I may have fallen away from God.
I will never forget the time, when I was facing the lowest moment in my life. As I sat alone…I couldn’t see anything good about my life. Pretty much everyone had walked away…and to be honest with you, I felt as if I was at ground zero, which is not an easy place to be in life. Even though I couldn’t see any hope at the time…there was someone who could…someone who still loved me, even though I felt like a piece of nothing. That day, as I sat there alone; God came to me and spoke to my heart and made a promise to my heart that He was going to rescue me…from what seemed to be the most impossible moments of my life. As I got up and walked away, I just shook my head; because others had promised love to me; but only hurt me. Now, as I look back on those moments, I see a God who not only kept His word…but a God who never gave up on me…and never stopped loving me. In Jeremiah 31:3, we read… “The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”…and you know what…this is the promise that He’s not only making to me; but to you too. Maybe you are alone and maybe you are at rock bottom; but I know a God who is standing there with you. Maybe the circumstance has made you feel different, from what I am saying to you right now; but believe me when I say… “God is there, with an everlasting love…a love that He has just for you.” Maybe others have walked away…and maybe you don’t see hope; but that is only because you are sizing up the situation, just as I was. One thing I know, with all my heart; is that when you take your eyes away from the situation and start seeking God; then you will find that He is standing there…waiting to love and care for you, with a kindness and love that is unfailing.
No matter what you are facing at this time…stop for a moment…and take your eyes off of what is standing before you…and rise above it…to a place, where you can truly experience a God, whose love for you is unending.
Have a very blessed day…and always know that you are loved and cared for, by a God whose love for you is truly everlasting! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
