the Lord appeared to him from far away.
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Happy Tuesday, friends! Praying you all had a beautiful start to the week. I had a really good day yesterday as I got to jump back into work and get through some emails. I also added some last-minute touches to the workbook, CALLED 21 Prayer for This Season! It’s the first official workbook of this community, and I am so excited for the release of early March! Thank you again to everyone who ordered a book in our pre-order!
It’s not too late to get your hands on a copy of the workbook! Check out the show notes for a quick link!
Today is our 7th prayer around this “What is Love” series, and a man, I really love this prayer, no pun intended! I think these themes really help us dig a little deeper into prayer, and I am happy we get to do so together.
Today’s devotional was prompted by the thought, “I am Loved.” It’s an affirmation I like to repeat often. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed in our season that we feel inadequate or as if we aren’t good enough for where God has us.
Maybe you are in school, or maybe you are helping raise your children’s children. Our ages may differ, but the feeling of inadequacy can paralyze us at any time.
This verse is saying that he has loved us with everlasting love. One that transcends age, experience, or adequacy. He is faithful. We are loved.
The Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. It says we are a new creation in Christ. It says that He so loved the world He gave his only son. It says we are loved unconditionally. So on this Tuesday, I am going to choose to bask in the love God grants us. I am going to sit in His faithfulness. I am going to put on the posture of gratitude, and I hope that you do too.
Repeat after me; I am Loved. I am Loved. I am Loved. Boys, this is for you too. Repeat after me; I am loved.
Jesus, thank you for your unfailing, everlasting, faithful love. Thank you for showing us love when we so desperately seek it from the world. Remind us that our souls crave you. The world will never offer us what you have, so we ask that we bask in your love, and when we feel inadequate, we remember this is the very feeling that keeps us humble. It allows us to lean on you. We love you with everything in us; we ask that you bless the day ahead of us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!
