It’s Wednesday which means you get to hear/see me for our weekly visit. It’s time for a little “Coffee for Your Heart” part of Holly Gerth’s 2014 Encouragement Project. A moment to take a deep breath and spread a little love and encouragement over the interwebs.
This weeks prompt is “You are Loved”.
This one was hard for me. I have struggled my whole life with the idea of being “worthy of love”. I am happy to say that we indeed are not only worthy of love but Our Lord loves us with great intention in every moment of every day. He literally breathes life into us.
So go grab your cup of coffee or tea or water or a juice box, whatever you got. Come and sit with me for just a moment.
This is one of my favorite Christian songs by the very talented Kari Jobe. It’s all about the constancy of God’s love for us and how He came down to suffer and die for us, thus allowing us a way to know Him and love Him and serve Him.
Every time I hear these lyrics I imagine myself singing them directly to Our Lord. I want Him to know that I love Him too!! That’s right my friends, not just that I love Him, but that I love Him TOO!
After all, He loved me first. For that I am so very, very grateful
So listen and be moved. Then go and love those God has put in your path today. Go and be the face of christ to them. Don’t worry about “failing” or not being up to snuff. Just do your best and go love.
