God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
God loves even me – a rebellious, prodigal daughter.
The one who gets it so wrong.
The one who’s harsh with words, quick to judge, selfish and self centered.
The one who loses her temper and swears.
I am His beloved.
My name is written on the palms of His hands and nothing can snatch me away.
Not my sin.
Not my doubt.
Not my anger or unbelief.
His love isn’t conditional.
It never changes.
It always protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres.
His love never fails.
God doesn’t look away.
He sees me.
Look into the eyes of a Savior.
Behold and Be held.
Safe in loving arms, refuge of strength.
Jesus loves with an everlasting love.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16 NIV
I come in poverty and need.
My penalty price is His life.
“Come, Follow Me.”
Lay down my life, pick up His cross.
He remembers my sins no more.
Let the striving cease.
Grace for my grime.
Serve the Creator, not the created.
In my weakness, He is strong.
Lift the torn veil.
Know that I am deeply loved.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NIV
