A love I've never known


Excuse me for my transparency, some may even say I mean vulnerability. But regardless of the definition, this is my truth. It was easy for me to conceptualize God's love but not easy for me to fall into the experience of it. You see, I grew up in a home where "I love you's" and warm embraces were a rare occurrence. Most times, I would only receive this type of interaction when sick. So you can imagine my surprise, when God revealed I could walk in His love all the time. (Ephesians 5:2)

I believe, it's a lot of people out there like me. Maybe some of you are even reading this. You find yourself constantly vying and trying to do things to receive God's love. But I'll tell you like He told me. His love ain't no bargaining chip. Scripture says that HE IS love. (1 John 4:16) Meaning that His very presence in your life, is representative of His love. He says that He will love you with an everlasting love, that means it will never run out.(Jeremiah 31:3) He even says when the Earth is shaken, that not even that could remove His love from you. (Isaiah 54:10)

I don't fully know your experiences with love, but I want you to imagine what could happen if you chose to free fall into the love of God. The warm embrace that would cover you as you go throughout your day. The comforter that would wrap you up snug and tightly at bedtime. God is more than just God. He is Love. He is IN LOVE with you. You are honorable and precious in His sight. (Isaiah 43:4) It may be hard to receive, but keep speaking it until it becomes your truth.

You are worthy of love, a love that you've never known...
