Embraced By God

DAY #11 - "A Woman of Faith" Devotional
Verse: Lamentations 3:22 NLT ~"The unfailing love of the Lord never ends!"
Have you ever felt alone, or that no one loved you? Well you were wrong... there is always someone that loves you, and loves you unconditionally. (That means no matter what you do or don't do, He still loves you). That's God! God wants us to respond to His love in a way pleasing to Him. We need to take time with Him, just as we would in a earthly relationship. There are 5 Love Languages, and God can love you with all 5, and you can love Him with all 5. {To read more about the 5 Love Languages, check out this website. (click the link)} We can spend 'Quality Time' with Him, we can use our 'Gifts' to show we love Him, we use 'Words of Praise & Affirmation' to let Him know how much we love Him, we do 'Acts of Service' to those in our community to show the Love of God, and that we are full of His love, and we can tangibly 'touch' Him when we worship Him. My Love Language is 'Physical Touch', so I really love the worship songs that include words where it talks of embracing Jesus, or God holding us in His arms, etc. This topic today touches my heart, as I love to be embraced by God. Each day we can be embraced by God, but unfortunately like in physical relationships we push Him away... or put Him on the shelf until we 'need' Him. (Technically we ALWAYS need Him).

Well, the choice is indeed yours... He is loving you beyond measure, and with a never-ending love as our verse of the day states... but how will YOU respond? Will you ignore or will you embrace Him back? "When you open yourself to God's love, you feel differently about yourself, your neighbours, and your world. When you embrace God's love, you share His message and you obey His commandments." ('A Woman of Faith' Devotional - Day #11. ©2007 Freeman-Smith, LLC.

Be blessed and be a blessing to someone... share the Love of Jesus that is found right within YOU! Let God love you, and please love Him in return, it's one of the BEST choices you can make! <3

Thank you Lord that Your love and mercy never end!

Now, listen to this song and even to the special part starting at 6:33, where Kim explains more about the love of God, as there may be some of you who have never encountered the Love of God. (the message & prayer goes until 7:54 -- listen to it all, and let the Spirit of God annoint you where you are at!) It's the same Spirit that was there when they recorded this, as the one who is now with you where you are! Be blessed!

How He Loves
(sung by Kim Walker)

Be Blessed & Be a Blessing!
