Hello there, I’m happy you are here today. This is a quick reminder for the new week.
1 Peter 4:8b NLT
…for love covers a multitude of sins
“I just want someone to love me”, our deepest yearnings and longings is to be loved no matter what. Even a bad person wants to be loved. Love is what everyone craves for here on earth and even when we get to heaven, we all want to be accepted and loved in spite of our flaws. I believe you want to be loved despite of your imperfections too. A convicted murderer still wants to be loved by their family regardless of what they’ve done. We all yearn and long for LOVE no matter who we are, good or bad.
Sometimes, in this pursuit of love, we end up in places that will only end up hurting and creating a bigger void in our lives but as humans we don’t give up, we dust ourselves off, pick ourselves up and continue to run in pursuit of true love, searching and hoping someone will truly love us in defiance of all our mess.
We do crazy things to be accepted by others, we so want to be loved at all cost so we don’t mind to get into relationships we know so well won’t work. In the process we damage ourselves. We are now left with different problems such as low-self-esteem and trust issues. We are damaged and battered by the people we crave to love us. But wait God says you can come as you are, yes with all your mess, with all your imperfections, with your damaged self. He is calling you to come; He wants you as you are. Although you see yourself as a damaged goods, with all that you’ve done, Jesus says He loves you. He loves your flaws, He loves your damaged heart, and He loves you as you are. He will take you as His bride, He will wash and cleanse you, dress you in righteousness. He will marry you and you will be one with Him.
He won’t be ashamed of you.
So, start a relationship with Him. Love is in love with you. Know that your deepest yearnings and longings can be met only by a renewed fellowship with the One in whose image you were created, God.
P.S. God loves you.
