Your presence in this world matters. There is a purpose for your existence.
You are not merely a ‘cosmic accident’ birthed from nothing, out of nothing.
There is creative thoughtfulness and love embedded in your DNA.
You are very specifically and intentionally made for this generation.
As humans, we are created in love, for love, to love.
We know this because God is love and we are created in His image however we die in the image of our decisions.
When we fail to love, are not loved or abuse love then something goes wrong.
The ‘original’ love we were created to give and receive becomes corrupted, distorted and defiled. Our original spiritual DNA falls away from our Creator and the essence of our being changes.
It is at this point that we begin to feel confused about our identity.
When we don’t know who we are in Christ, we will look for our identity in every other nook and cranny of this world. We need love but if we are far from the creator, then we do not know where to go to receive it so each person looks to themselves to answer this question instead of to God, who is the author of love. Our understanding of love will then be shaped by people, movies, social media, music and it’s a mess. Accordingly, our definition of “love” will constantly change which is why we need our firm foundation, our rock.
We need the truth about love. God IS love AND truth. He does not change. He is the same, yesterday, today and forever. His love stands firm so go back to the heart of your Creator. Get to know Him, get to know your true self in Him and let Him show you the plans He has for your life. It is guaranteed that He will exceed every and any expectation you have. Take a leap of faith into the arms of God and just let Him love you.
I ask that you help me to know you more, to love you more and to seek you. Make your ways known to me. I am sorry if I have gone astray and played by the rules that suited me but from now on, I choose you. I want everything you are and I choose to follow you. Please teach me your ways. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
