Today I read this:
"We love because he first loved us." I John 4:19
And all I could think of was.......how incredible it is that You love us...people....me? And because You looked to and fro among the things You created, and then cast Your eyes upon me...and pierced my heart and soul with Your love....how my heart bursts returning that love to You.
I love You...You are beautiful.
I love You...You are worthy.
I love You...because Your perfect love not only loved me first, but without it, I would never know what love is or should be. I would never know You. And I would be empty and hopeless and lost.
Instead....I am loved.
