Receive


The lightbulb goes off

&

everything starts to make sense.

The dots are now connected

The "i" is dotted. The "t" is crossed.

Now what?

You look in amazement, yet are paralyzed at the same time

because

Now what?

GOD LOVES YOU

more than anyone else can or will ever love you.

Yup!

GOD WANTS TO BE WITH YOU

more than anyone else ever wants to be with you.

Yup!

But then the lightbulb starts to dim

as doubt sets in

because

Now what?

How do you live as one who is

LOVED

so deeply by the

ONE

who created you?

Is it possible when you don't feel or act so lovable?

Is it possible when you feel so alone?

Yup!

Now what?

Become like a little innocent baby

who instantly smiles at the silliest things

because a baby

RECEIVES

all that is given to them without question

because the lightbulb is always going off in a baby's life

as she is growing & changing every day

yet still has that precious heart tucked inside of her

that is so

TRUSTING

and always ready to

RECEIVE

immediately the free love given to her.

But then the baby grows up into a

you & a me~

Now what?

"People respond to the love of God differently.

· Some respond with a sense of self-superiority (“I’m so great, even God loves me!”).

· Some respond with doubt (“Can God really love even me?”).

· Some respond with wickedness (“God loves me, so I can do what I want”) (Guzik)

Now what?

"We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], & have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which GOD has for us. GOD is love, & the one who abides in love abides in GOD, and GOD abides continually in him" (I John 4:16)

Now what?

Let's become like a baby

and

BELIEVE so deeply

because we

RECEIVE immediately

the love that

is ours whether we feel it or not~

“To feel God’s love is very precious, but to believe it when you do not feel it, is the noblest.”(Spurgeon)

And

Live Like You're Loved (listen to the song)
