Christ loves you.
By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.
(1 John 3:16 ESV)
Why is it so easy to forget?
A love so deep, so sincere, so unconditional.
We live reckless lives, in search of fulfillment. In search of something to fill the void.
Waste our whole life, looking for love. When we’ve had it all along.
Searching for truth, when we have it right in front of us.
We choose to be blinded by things, by people, by the world.
When the way is actually brightly lit by this amazing God, for us to follow.
Yes, the world seems sweet.
The temptations are plenty but knowing all we know, how can we turn away from His light?
Knowing how short life is, how can we waste a second of it on moments of earthly pleasures?
I’m yet to understand it. I am constantly losing focus.
Constantly in need of His reminders.
I will never understand why He chose me, in this moment of time.
Or what His end plan for me is. All I know is, I live for Him.
My flesh may be weak but He chose me and He will not let me slip away if I am clinging on Him.
Being human makes no sense most of the time, but God has it all together. With all our short comings, and our weaknesses. He has it all sorted. Though we may forget His love, He doesn’t forget to love us. How can He love us in spite of all that? I don’t know, I don’t understand but, He does. Let go, of all of that self pity/self loathing for the times you let Him down. He already knows it all. And yes, He still loves you. He loves us. You can’t really love Him when you keep thinking about the past or your the times you fail Him. So let go, and believe He loves you. If you trust Him, He will make you stronger. In our lowest, He is strong.
You are so loved, believe it and live like you know it.
but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him:
