Love Life

You have been made to love and be loved.

You are made to need it.

Not just any love – not your spouse’s love, your friend’s love, your boyfriend’s love or even your mom’s love. 

When we look to humans to give us what we need, we find they are just like us- flawed and doing the best they can and in need of love themselves.

They will fail you and are not meant to fill you or fulfill you.

It is God’s love that can fill you, fulfill you, change you.

His unending, unchanging, un-quitting, transforming love. 

The love you need today is God’s.

“God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.” 

1 John 4:16-17 NLT

My friend, God has created you to have an amazing love life and you don’t need Valentine’s Day to celebrate it.

Because of Jesus, you are loved every day and through Him can love others every day.

Happy Valentine’s Life in Jesus.

May you feel as loved as you are. 

Don’t Undervalue Yourself

Jesus came to bring to completion the word spoken to the Old Testament Prophet Isaiah:

“For I have chosen you and will not throw you away. Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:9,10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Jesus came to complete it,
to reclaim you,
to reconcile you to God,
has chosen you,
pursued you,
paid for you,
cherishes you,
will not abandon you.

Jesus will whisper this truth to you every day, in every way He can until you will believe it, embrace it and live in it. 

YOU ARE HIS.
YOU ARE CHOSEN.

Reread if necessary.

Called, Loved, Cared For

“I am writing to all who have been called by God the Father, who loves you and keeps you safe in the care of Jesus Christ.”
‭‭Jude‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
You are called.
You are loved.
You are cared for.
You don’t have to strive to take care of “number one” or stress to win the approval of others.
Jesus will walk with you, guide you and bring you back when you wander off.
Accept God’s invitation to live as a cherished child today.
Live loved right now.
Let Jesus take care of you.
May your relationship with Jesus be like the eye of a storm where the uncertainty of this season will swirl around you as the peace of God which passes all understanding guards your heart.
How are you living in the invitation of God?
How are you receiving His love?
Are you living like you are cared for or like you have to take care of yourself?
