God loves us exactly the way we are.

Psalm 116:12

How can I repay the Lord for all the good done for me?

+++

If we took an inventory of all our blessings…we would be hard pressed to be able to “repay” God for all of them.

Thankfully, God does not want repayment. God simply wants us to shower us with unconditional love.

True love does not seek anything in return. It’s given to us freely with no strings attached.

That is a hard concept for us to fathom since we seldom experience such gratuitous favor from other human beings.

The beautiful truth is…God loved you and me into existence. It is a Love that is always given and never withdrawn

God is Love (1 John 4:8).

There came a time when I experienced this Love in my heart…and it changed my life.

When you know that you know that you know you are loved by God in your imperfection…just as you are…it changes everything.

I simply had to share that news with others.

Jesus said, “Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice’” (Matthew 9:13).

God doesn’t need our sacrifices or payments. God simply wants us to pass on the love we’ve been freely given.

Open your heart and receive a Love that was, is and forever will be.
