God's Transforming Love
Hey there Lovebugs :)
Happy Friday to ya! Have you ever experienced a love that transforms you? A love that makes you feel safe and secure?
The other morning during my time with The Lord, I experienced His love in a new way. Can I be transparent for a moment?I've struggled with REALLY accepting God's grace and love for me. I feel like I have to be good and do good just to make sure I stay on God's good side. I'm not sure where I even got this thought from but I've struggled with this for some time. Hubs has even helped me by giving me scriptures to meditate on so that I can renew my mind when it comes to this. I remember praying to God one day, asking Him to help me to do the things He wants me to do because I love Him, not just because I'm scared of Him. That's when The Lord kept working on me. I felt Him start to change my heart, not just with Him but with others. He helped me to see that certain thoughts stem from my childhood and that His ways are not like man. See I know that God loves me but that truth had a hard time penetrating my heart but the more time I spent with God, the more I saw that He truly does love me. Now when certain thoughts come in my mind, I quickly rebuke them and remind myself of God's love.
God's love is truly transforming. It can heal the deepest wounds and comfort us in the darkest of nights. It's up to us to enter into a love affair with God. He's waiting for us with open arms and all we have to do is move towards Him.
