Day 22: True Love


REAL LOVE

is a

TRUE LOVE

where no words have to be

said,

because you just KNOW

that

you are LOVED.

Think about it.

Who in your LIFE

LOVES you with a

REAL LOVE

that is a TRUE LOVE

where no words have to be said,

because when you are in that person's presence

you don't even have to say a word?

My husband LOVES me with a

REAL LOVE

with a TRUE LOVE,

that is unexplainable

because he KNOWS me oh so well,

and

he LOVES me just as I am.

I always had a hard time

RECEIVING & BELIEVING

his LOVE

because I

never felt worthy enough

to be LOVED,

because of the words & actions

of others

that tore me down,

so I BELIEVED I was undeserving of

LOVE.

I wore the title of

UNLOVEABLE.

Why is it so easy to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE

the

words that are used to tear you down,

yet difficult to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE

the words that are said

to LOVE you?

Oh the stain of pain

that

LOVES to invade your

HEART

that was created

for

REAL LOVE

for

TRUE LOVE.

Oh the stain of pain

that

JESUS wore on the cross

so that when HIS WORDS~

"IT IS FINISHED"

came out of HIS mouth

A REAL LOVE

A TRUE LOVE

was birthed

for you

for me

&

for everyone else

to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE.

A LOVE from

GOD

who KNOWS

you & me & everyone else

better than we KNOW ourselves

BUT

HE CHOSE

LOVE

over

condemnation

because that is what

LOVE DOES.

Read this verse slowly

as if it wasn't so familiar

so that you don't miss it~

For GOD so

[GREATLY] lOVED and

dearly PRIZED the world,

that HE [even] gave HIS [ONE and] only begotten SON,

so that WHOEVER BELIEVES and TRUSTS IN HIM

[as SAVIOR] SHALL NOT perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16).

Do you get it? Do you really get it?

How much more does

GOD have to do

to PROVE that

HE LOVES YOU

&

HE LOVES ME

&

HE LOVES EVERYONE ELSE.

HIS LOVE never tears you down.

And all we have to do is to

RECEIVE & BELIEVE GOD

as we

RECEIVE & BELIEVE

what JESUS did on the cross.

I am getting pretty CHRISTIAN~ESE

this morning

because I have a tendency

to complicate the simple

and try to find the small print

that says that I am exempt from

experiencing

the REAL LOVE

&

the TRUE LOVE

from

GOD

and also

from

RECEIVING it from my precious husband

and

from others who

GOD sends into my life

who have experienced

GOD'S REAL LOVE

of the

TRUE LOVE from HIS SON

that is poured out

to be

RECEIVED & BELIEVED

by

EVERYONE

as no one is exempt.

No fine print.

No reading between the lines.

"IT IS FINISHED"

GRACE is

REAL LOVE

and

the

TRUE LOVE

that washes away

UNWORTHY. Will you join me

in this precious

moment

and

never make the following WORDS

so familiar

that they become just

words that never

penetrate your HEART~

"FOR GOD SO LOVED"

(listen to the song below)
