And then, it occurred to me. YOU REALLY WANT ME TO KNOW YOU! YOU WANT ME TO FEEL FORGIVEN! YOU LOVE ME AND WANT ME TO KNOW IT! Why else would You have persistently kept me up? No, You WANTED me to open my Bible to Galatians so that I could be reminded that I'm saved!
No amount of guilt that I burden myself with can POSSIBLY make myself worthier of salvation. You don't WANT me to wallow in self-induced condemnation! You WANT Your children to feel forgiven.
Because You LOVE us. Beautifully, Relentlessly, Perfectly, Cleansingly, Purely, Everlastingly. You even love those who don't love You...and those who never will.
HOW YOU LOVE US, OH, HOW YOU LOVE US!
Oh, how You love me.
I don't understand it. I never will. But I believe it...and I always will.
Lord, how unshakable You are!
I LOVE YOU!!! ♥ ♥
