Love One Sided

Love One Sided

God’s love for you is one-sided. It is His decision to love.  Your first heartbeat while in your mother’s womb filled Him with great joy. You were created by Him because He wanted you to experience His perfect love for you.

God excels in the details. He knows your name. He blessed the day you were born and plans when you will return to Him.  He knows the number of hairs on your head and assigns you fingerprints that will remain yours alone. Each day He listens to the steady rhythm of your heartbeat and smells the sacred scent of your breath. He designed the unique shape and color of your eyes and sculpted your personal smile. God’s heart dwells deep within your thoughts, joys and fears. God loves every intricate part of you completely, no changes required, no strings attached. He adores you and He made you with great intention to love you unconditionally and for eternity.

God covers you in love as fur covers an animal to offer  protection and comfort.  He intervenes with His strong righteous right hand to protect you from enemies who prove too strong for you. God’s grace provides forgiveness for the sins that entangle you and prepares you to see His glory in heaven. God delights to heal your body from illness, your mind from falsehood, and your soul from emptiness.  His love gives holy comfort and peace that come from Him alone.

This is Love One Sided. It is given by the God Who Is Love.

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them.                1 John 4:16
