Perfect Love

Perfect Love

Good Morning From Tampa!

I wasn’t planning on posting again so soon, but when I read my Prayers on Fire reading for today, I got so excited that I had to share it!  Consider this a bonus to my Friday Favorite from yesterday. Actually, it’s a perfect companion for it.  Needless to say, my love tank is full this morning!  I’ll post it below.  You’re welcome!

 

Unending Love

Drink deeply of the pleasures of this God.  Experience for yourself the joyous mercies he gives to all who turn to hide themselves in him. -Psalm 34:8

Your freedom is so liberating!  A gift I don’t deserve.  Over and over your mercy lifts me up.  When I feel distant and forsaken, you recalibrate my heart so it beats in rhythm with yours, once again.  How beautiful your love is!  Always giving, with no demands for reciprocation.  Humble.  Engraved with your very nature.  I want to hide myself here, in your embrace, and forever drink deeply of this love.  I can never get enough.  You see my humanity and the many times I fail, yet with relentless pursuit, you cheer me on.  You smear the pages of sin with holy blood, so I cannot read its once again raging accusation.  Inspired by your kindness, I run to pursue my dreams and leave the past far behind.  This is who I truly am-your child, your protégé, the one you know by name.  This is unending love-the story of life with you.

{Does this make your heart beat faster, or is it just me???}

Is this beautiful or what?  The fact that no matter what we do, he never stops pursuing us and over and over pours his perfect love on us, will always blow my mind. Isn’t it incredible that we don’t have to do anything to deserve it?  If we did, it would be about us and it’s not.  His love is about him.  He IS love!  Whether we accept it or not, he loves us.  This love fills me and fuels me.  I never want to experience one day of life on this earth without it!

Do you know this love?  Have you searched for this kind of love in people?  You won’t find it there.  No matter how good a person is, they can’t love you like He does.  It can only be found in him and it’s waiting for you!  This excites me because it means that EVERY SINGLE person on the planet can experience it, and it doesn’t depend on anything or anyone!

If you weren’t loved by your parents, or have been scarred by a friend or even your spouse, know this-the love that God wants you to experience is already there, right in front of you!  Don’t let what people have done to you make you bitter when you think about ‘love’.  Let the One that IS love show you what it’s all about. Don’t let life pass you by without finding the Unending Love described in this Psalm.  You won’t regret it!

I pray that the Presence of God washes over you, right where you are!  That you will feel his arms wrapped around you and that you will rest in knowing the One True Love.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Talk to you soon!

Blessings,

polly
