“Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:26 NIV
In our weekly devotions, we have centered our hearts on the theme of love. As a child, I loved celebrating Valentine’s Day because I got to tell my friends they were special to me by giving them a handmade heart with candy taped on top. It fills my heart to be able to let folks know I care about them, but I find my intentions are great and my sending of such notes – not so much. I get so disappointed in myself because I know how important it is to tell people they matter.
I want to be a better version of who I am in this world. I want to be more the person that God created me to be so that the unconditional love that Christ offers me is reflected in my words and actions. I believe people come into our lives to teach us about the Lord’s unconditional love. I believe we worship and praise God as a response to the love we receive from God.
The Lord sends us tangible expressions of his love every single day. Sometimes it is in the little things and sometimes it is in the big stuff! I pray that as you go through your week, you will look for God in everything and in each person. Seeking the Lord with all your heart leads to experiencing the Lord in all you do. Be mindful and watch closely for the Lord your God loves you unconditionally and “his love endures forever.”
