Lord, I'm so grateful for your faithfulness, for never leaving us when we blow it.

I know of nothing else in this world that creates greater security than realizing how faithful God's love is towards us even when (especially when) we make huge mistakes.

It's true!

We can be confident we are loved regardless if we "get it right" or not because God's love for us is not based on how we perform or behave, but rather, based on who he is. It's his nature to love - and he loves us greatly!

When we understand this, and really let this piece of truth sink in to our hearts it liberates us from all kinds of guilt, shame and condemnation we may feel otherwise.

It also inspires us to love.

It inspires us to love God. It inspires us to love ourselves. It inspires us to love our neighbors. Heck! It even inspires us to love our enemies.

This kind of love is so transformative to our human hearts.

God, I'm so very, very grateful that you love us like you do, and that you never leave us even when we make huge blunders.

Blessings to you,
