Have been thinking about how thankful I am for God's unconditional love for me. Sometimes don't you ever feel tired of the type of love you sometimes feel like you have to "earn" with people. This may be my own false perceptions, but sometimes I think there are truths to this. I'm so thankful I can rest in God's unconditional love, He simply loves me because I am HIS and He knows I need to be loved.
Honesty, I have been learning, is very important in my relationship with God as well. I don't think I had been deeply honest with things..which ironically, I don't see until the hurts in relationships with those around me.
It can be hard sometimes when you find out someone was only being kind to you when you agreed with them and their beliefs, only to find out that relationship wasn't real, it was conditional. That means, that they only are kind to you if you benefit them, or some kind of selfish reason.
God uses that though to draw you more to Him, as sometimes, I know I do anyways, let those relationships take a deeper root than HIM, and He takes that away so that I can become so broken, that all I know to do is find Him. He is the only one who understands me completely. He loves me with all my weaknesses, failures, regret, and says you are mine.
I'm so thankful to have a relationship with God that is everlasting, nothing I do takes away His love for me. If he is far away, it's because of me becoming to prideful, not trusting in His love and His plan in my life. I am so thankful for Him.
I am thankful for you God and all you do for me, your forgiveness, but even more...your amazing grace, mercy and unfailing, everlasting, unconditional love.
I wouldn't know how to unconditionally love without your example when you died on the cross for me, for my sins that put you there. Help me to trust in You completely day by day in your amazing grace that you renew each morning.
