Love NEVER fails!
I don’t think I truly understood this truth about love until I became a mommy. I love my children. Some days I don’t like them and I am sure there are days they don’t like me. That love for them never goes away. If they are being obedient, I Iove them, when they are rebellious, I love them. If they think the same way I do, I love them, if they have a different opinion, I love them. It doesn’t matter what they do or don’t do, my love for them is continuous and never failing.
I have those relationships where I love these people but I don’t like them. I love them but I have to keep myself in a place where I am not around them all the time. It doesn’t mean I don’t love them but either it is unhealthy for me to be around them or it could be a place where I fall into sin if I am around them.
For a long time I didn’t understand this love. I didn’t understood that God love me, just because I was His. His love wasn’t based on what I did or I didn’t do but because He created me. God has loved me through my whole life, even when I wasn’t obedient. He loves me even when I am working on understanding His truth and I have a hard time letting go of the wrong mindset or old ways of thinking. He loves me so much He was wiling to sacrifice, His One and Only Son for my sins and the sins of the world.
You know there were many times in my walk with the Lord, that I felt lonely. I realized recently that I don’t feel that loneliness anymore. Daily, we walk and talk with one another. I feel His presence so steadily. Even when I am alone, I don’t feel the loneliness I used to. He loves me ALL the time and He NEVER leaves me or forsakes me. There is nothing in this world better than knowing we have a God who loves us unconditionally and forever.
I pray that this truth will sink deep into your heart and that you will KNOW the unfailing love of our God so that you may go out into this world and truly love others as He has loved you!!
Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your unfailing love for me. Please help us to truly receive and know Your love for us so we may be free and be able to share that love with our family and those You have placed in our paths. We love you! In Jesus Name! Amen!
