In life we can try very hard to be someone we are not. We can take on society’s and others demands of perfection and image because we desperately want to know that we measure up. However, putting on a facade will never lead us to acceptance for who we really are.
We all truly desire to find someone who loves just the way we are. If we could simply relax in the presence of someone who loves us unconditionally, then we could have pure confidence that this person would never leave us, reject us or abandon us. We could know that in this great love affair we could come to purely love ourselves unconditionally as well.
The truth is we were made for this unconditional love. We can receive this love through the Creator of the universe when we simply receive His son Jesus into our hearts. God sent His dearly beloved son to earth to rescue, restore and redeem us; so that we can be reconnected to God completely and experience this great radical, relentless, overwhelming and unfailing love.
In love affair with God we can come to Him and receive a supernatural rest and a peace that transcends understanding. When we spend time with Him daily in prayer and communion, we will find our priorities align with His, we will sense what decisions to make and paths to take, and solutions will come with ease as we walk with a greater sense of purpose and destiny. The more we commune with the Altogether Lovely One, the more we will transform from the inside out into who we were always designed to be and step into all that we were made for.
John 4;9-10 MSG "God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they’ve done to our relationship with God."
