Meditating On His Love

Today in prayer I was prompted to thank God for His love.  My eyes began to swell with tears as I meditated over His love for me (I’m also a big crybaby).  Love is a verb, therefore it requires action.  Time and time again God has shown His love for us and continues to do so.  I began to meditate on how God loves me in spite of me being me.  And I thank Him for that.  I would like to think I’m a pretty nice person.  But the bible tells us that the heart is deceitfully wicked and no man can know it. (Jeremiah 17:9) When I acted out of character, He loved me.  When I had a funky attitude, He loved me. When I didn’t act like I loved myself, He loved me. When I murmured, complained about what I didn’t have and compared myself to my sister, He loved me.  His love is unending. It’s unconditional.  His love has changed me in so many ways and I am forever grateful.  I love the Lord with everything in me. And though I could never repay what He’s done in my life, I do strive to be a daughter that He can be well pleased with.  I strive to be more like Him.  Let us be mindful to love like He loves and see people through His eyes and not our own. And they shall know you by your love (John 13:35)!
