I have loved you with a love that lasts forever.
And so with unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Isn’t that one of loveliest verses you’ve ever read? I had to have seen it before but I can not recall ever reading these beautiful words. I’m always amazed at how God moves in my life. I believe I was led to this verse, on this day because I needed to be reminded that I am loved with a love that will last forever.
I didn’t have a post planned for today or tomorrow either, as a matter of fact. It’s not that I was unwilling. It’s more that I could not get it together! I wasn’t able to focus long enough to string a group of words into a coherent sentence. Since I have a tendency to make mountains out of molehills, my sudden inability to express myself via the written word had me monumentally frustrated, which of course, only made matters worse.
While I understand “writer’s block” theoretically, living it put me in such a negative space. I was anxious, irritable and impatient, mostly with myself – but I’m pretty sure some of it rubbed off on those around me. How could it not affect them? That’s the way the enemy works. If he can plant just one tiny seed, he’ll water and nurture it until it takes root and starts growing into something monstrous . One wayward thought is all it takes. That’s why believers are instructed in Ephesians 6:11 to put on the whole armor of God so that when the attacks come we’ll be prepared.
I wasn’t prepared. There have been times I’ve chosen not to write. There was even a time in my life when I refused to write, but never a time when I couldn’t. And I was not ready for it. All sorts of ridiculous, “you can’t write” thoughts beat me up until I threw my hands up and surrendered.
Then I read this tiny love letter from God and I allowed myself to feel the power in His Words. To feel an everlasting and unfailing love washing over and flowing through me.Photo: Flickr/Mindfulness
