Day 5: Freely Loved


Oh it is FREE to GIVE and it is FREE to RECEIVE.

We all want it. We all crave it.

I may want it from you.

You may want it from me.

We seek it in other things.

Because we were born to be LOVED.

Because we were born out of a LOVE

that it is not haphazard.

Who CREATES someone HE doesn't LOVE?

"Oh yes, YOU shaped me first inside, then out;

YOU formed me in my mother’s womb.

I thank you, High GOD—You’re breathtaking!

Body and soul, I am marvelously made!

I worship in adoration—what a creation!

YOU know me inside and out,

YOU know every bone in my body;

YOU know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,

how I was sculpted from nothing into something.

Like an open book, YOU watched me grow from conception to birth;

all the stages of my life were spread out before YOU.

The days of my life all prepared

before I’d even lived one day" (Psalm 139:13-16 MSG)

FREELY created by GOD.

Who CREATES someone HE doesn't LOVE

and doesn't stop LOVING~

even after HIS creation lives as UNLOVED,

seeking to find LOVE in all the wrong places

&

ending up in spaces & places where LOVE is just a figment of their imagination.

HIS LOVE is a forever kind of LOVE

that starts at birth and doesn't end at death

for

LOVE is FREE to RECEIVE~

“This is how much GOD loved the world: HE gave HIS SON, HIS one and only SON.

And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in HIM, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. GOD didn’t go to all the trouble of sending HIS SON merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. HE came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in HIM is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust HIM has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind SON OF GOD when introduced to HIM" (John 3:16 MSG).

LOVE isn't of myself. LOVE isn't of yourself.

Because we didn't create it~

"We love because HE first loved us" (I John 4:19)

Oh the FREEDOM to be REALLY LOVED at all times

that is not dependent on ourselves~

"So if the SON sets you free, you will be free indeed"(John 8:36).

Therefore,

will you

"LIVE LIKE YOU ARE LOVED" (listen to the song below)
