How wonderful to know that when you woke up this morning God clapped for you and told everyone in heaven to rejoice that you were awake. He rejoices because He can't love you enough. You are so precious to Him, like a child to her mother. But, God loves You more than you could ever know. Hard to imagine isn't it? Take a minute and really think about what it would feel like if that was what God did for you this morning. How does that make you feel? It made my heart feel overwhlemed with joy. I wanted to get up and spread that love with others. I wanted someone else to feel the way God's love makes me feel.
God wants YOU to feel loved today. He wants to hug you and kiss you even when you pull away. He wants to protect you even though sometimes He does allow you to fall. Not out of punishment or pleasure though. He wants you to learn from your mistakes, to grow into the person He knows you can be.
Thank you for your unconditional love through every trial and temptation we've encountered. Thank you for helping us to grow even though it pained Your heart to see us go through those trials. Help us to really believe in the truth of your unconditional love and to be able to to love others in that same way.
In Jesus' name,
