We are continuing our 30 Days of Gratitude! If you missed the scoop about why we’re celebrating, be sure to check out Episode One. Yesterday, I talked about doing what God gives you to do, and doing it with all of your might. Today, we’re going to be discussing Day Twenty- Nine’s topic: Endless Love.
Honestly, this has been a very trying season for me. I have learned even more that no matter how much you try to vet people who want to be friends with you, some enemies of your destiny still slip through the cracks. This caused a lot of sadness at first, but more than anything, it prompted me to use more caution and discernment when dealing with people. I still love and I still trust, but I will not ever allow myself to be put in those types of positions again. I’m grateful that this life is all about lessons. I don’t beat myself up about mistakes, because mistakes have taught me how to be a better me. It’s all good, always.
Today’s excerpt from my book is very encouraging to my heart, and I hope it will encourage your heart as well. It’s a short excerpt, but it’s very impactful. Here we go!
“It is he who remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever; and rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever; he who gives food to all flesh, for his steadfast love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven,
for his steadfast love endures forever.”
Psalm 136:23-26 (ESV)
~ Today’s Declaration ~
I will ALWAYS be loved by God.
If there is one thing that will always amaze me, it is the love of God. You’ve got to think about it. There are at least one hundred billion GALAXIES. There are billions and billions of planets. God created ALL of that. There are places in the ocean that have never been touched by any human or any type of manmade apparatus. There are places on this earth that have yet to be discovered. There are species of sea life that we still have yet to discover. There are things about our planet that we have yet to learn. There are species of animals that lived in the past that we are just now discovering. There are things in space that are literally millions of years away… and NONE OF THAT compares to the love that God has for you.
That love is bigger than EVERYTHING. It’s deeper. It’s wider. It has been around longer. When everything is said and done, and what we know now is no more, that same exact love will be right there. It’s a furious love. It’s a never-ending love. It’s powerful. It transcends time and space. It’s bigger than everything you can imagine multiplied by everything you can’t imagine. NOTHING compares to it. It’s EVERYTHING. Literally.
That love is reaching for you. That love is desiring you. That love is calling out to you. That love forgives you. That love accepts you. That love WANTS you. This is what I want you to do. Say, “God, tell me about Your love.” Listen… Write. Write what you hear. Write what you see. Write what you feel. That’s your “Write it Out” for today. God loves you. ENDLESSLY. God wants you to have MORE. More of what will help you to succeed. More of what brings you joy. More of what heals you. More of what breaks your chains. MORE. ALL of that is in God. All of it. ALL of it.
Learn to LIVE in that endless love. You can do it. One more day. We’re almost there. I’m proud of you. So proud! Live. #iSpeakLife
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
