He Loves Me!

Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

Jeremiah 31:3

A young girl was wandering through a beautiful garden when she came upon a clump of daisies. She picked one and started pulling off the petals, saying, “He loves me, he loves me not…” As I watched her from my quiet corner in the garden, I became overwhelmed with thoughts of gratitude to God for His gift of unconditional love.

The people in our lives say “I love you” so easily, but so often there are major strings attached. These messages come through: “I’ll love you if…,” “I’ll love you when…,” “I’ll love you but…”  There are so many conditions, and as a result we go around insecure, trying to please other people, looking for approval. Our emotions stay on a constant roller coaster; we fluctuate from happiness to despair  and back again.

God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, as a living demonstration that His love is radically different from conditional human love. If God had that daisy in His hand, as He pulled off the petals His message would be,”I love you, I love you!” That’s inner security!

Prayer:  Thank you God, for your love. Truly it is good news.
