Shhhh… You are Loved.

November 2, 2011

Shhhh….quiet your heart and just receive…

Look at him.

He hasn’t done anything yet…by mans standards.

He hasn’t led anyone down a spiritual path

He hasn’t led millions….yet.

He hasn’t even used any of the amazing gifts God has given him.

He accomplishes nothing, just yet… he just is…and that, is enough for him to be loved….Loved.

and yet….

he did nothing to earn tHis love…

he is loved as much as you and I…. Would you dream of arguing this little guy isn’t loved by God?

Never.

God loves him as much as God loves me….as much  as He loves you.

You are loved….before you wake up…and even after whatever you did  do or didn’t do  today….

you are loved.

Shhhh.

Sit  quietly and breathe deep.

You

are loved.

Loved.

Shhhhhhh.

You are loved.

    amazing isn’t it? just amazing. and your post was like telling someone to get a good stretch going the kind where your fist does vibrato on the cello strings….you know what I am saying.

    I didn’t realize I needed to just sink in and realize I am loved till you said it.

    now …you stretch.

    ahhhhhhh

    I’m having a love revelation in my life. I’m realizing that only His love can change me, we only become who we are and know true freedom when we let ourselves be loved by Jesus. It’s easy, but we make it hard. We struggle and strive to become something that we think will win His approval. The thing is, we can’t make God love us more and we can’t make Him love is less… So all that’s really left is to receive this love and then we really become who we were created to be…!

      “we can’t make God love us more and we can’t make Him love us less”

      like a ribbon clutched in the hand.. security for sure!
      Love it Jess!

    what a sweet little guy! Oh, I just want to squeeze him!!! This is a wonderful reminder, thank you.
    nice to meet you by the way…stopping by from Imperfect Prose 🙂

    Lovely. A heartfelt reminder that the expectant chorus of coulda-shoulda-woulda doesn’t matter, it is rather the melody of this child’s song held gently on your lips that is the real spiritual path…
