“I love you,” I heard You whisper, when I hung my head in shame.
“What was that?” I asked bewildered, expecting disappointment, condemnation, and blame—anything but love.
“I love you. I always have, and I always will.”
As tears rolled down my cheeks, I grasped the weight of Your words. In spite of all that I had done to break Your heart, You still loved me. You never stopped loving me.
“Forgive me, Father,” I cried out.
“You are forgiven. It is forgotten.”
Your peace immediately filled my spirit.
And from that day to this I have felt Your loving embrace every moment of every season of my life. Through it all, You are right here with me, loving me.
I love you, Abba. Nothing and no one compares to You. You are love and life is worth living because of You!
