Being loved changes everything. When I embrace the steadfast and unfailing love God has for me–His love changes me and opens my eyes to an unseen world all around me covered with His fingerprints.
The Psalmist wrote:
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you. (Psalm 63:3 ESV)
Life without love barely resembles life at all. Life without love boils down to nothing more than heartbeats and nerve synapses firing without meaning or purpose. This morning embrace the steadfast, unfailing love God has for us. Run toward His embrace.
Today, we embrace His love for us. We gaze upon the nail prints which tell the story. We choose to find life alone in His unfailing love and not in the temporal and tantalizing temptations luring us to unfaithful lovers who only use and toss aside. We confess His love gives life its meaning and purpose so praise naturally and fully pours from our lips out of the overflow of souls deeply satisfied.
