Give thanks to the LORD
For he is good
His love endures forever.
Forever is a long time! Can you believe that you are loved by God … forever? I remember someone once teaching that our first experiences of love shape the way we then interpret and experience love for the rest of our lives. The way our mom loved us or our dad loved us sets a “cast” or mold for every future relationship. I think he had a point.
And yet, our LORD would like to prewrite or overwrite his love on our hearts so we’re not limited by our mom or dad or whoever else writes in our “book of Love.” Our Lord wants us to know that while we sleep when we wake, and through the day, we are swimming in the sea of His love. In our fear, when we’re surrounded, and even in the face of death, we are loved.
You are loved.
This day as you pray, don’t voice the prayers of one who sees herself as an orphan or himself as a groveling slave, but rather as one of those whom the LORD loves … forever!
Praying and being loved with you today.
