You Are Loved

I’m addicted. There. I said it. I am addicted.

No. Not to drugs or alcohol. Not to food. (Well, maybe a little to carbs. Okay, a lot.) Not even to Netflix, although that is an addiction recently broken.

What I can’t get enough of is……..

I’m addicted. There. I said it. I am addicted.

No. Not to drugs or alcohol. Not to food. (Well, maybe a little to carbs. Okay, a lot.)  Not even to Netflix, although that is an addiction recently broken.

What I can’t get enough of is……..God. It’s His presence. His love manifest in my heart and permeating my soul. That tangible, palpable, touchable, all-consuming love and presence of the One who made me.

At times I only know He’s there by faith. Because the Word says He never leaves.

Oh, but those sweet times I can FEEL Him. Those times He’s so present it feels like every part of my soul is on fire with His closeness and melting with the honey of His goodness……those I crave. I can’t get enough. Like this morning. And it’s so good I want to share it with everyone.

So I’ve been praying Paul’s prayers for the church. The ones in Ephesians 1 and Ephesians 3. The prayers in Philippians 1 and Colossians 1. All of them. I’ve been praying them for myself and my husband and kids. For my family and my church family. And I’ve been praying them for you. My blog family. Praying them daily….multiple times a day.

And I just wanted you to know that this morning. I am praying for you and I felt the need to tell you that today.

Maybe you’re feeling all alone. You’re wondering where God is and does He even care. Know this. He’s there. And He cares. And He put you in my thoughts and on my heart to encourage you.

You are loved.

You’re not alone. He’s thinking amazing thoughts about you. And He’s already in your tomorrow. Yes that tomorrow that you’re so worried about. He’s already there, working things out for your good and preparing your miracle, so hang on.

And this is what I prayed for you….for strength and deep roots. That you would be addicted to love. His love. I prayed you would experience the healing power of His love in all the broken places of your soul today. That you’d be filled with the richest measure of His divine presence. That your entire life would be flooded with God Himself. I prayed Ephesians 3 for you.

May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

Be inspired today. You are loved. Amazingly, thoroughly, wholly, completely loved by a good, good Father.

Blessings…
