“The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV)
Sometimes people come into our lives who promise to love us, attempt to do their best, but they may be broken themselves, and just not able to do what they so hoped they could do. That is not a reflection of whether or not you are loveable, it is a reflection on their own brokenness, and what they are able, or not able to do.
Yet cherished one, there is One Who loves you deeply, tenderly, truly—Who always has and always will. Your heavenly Father wants others to love you too, in all the life-giving ways that are meant to be, as His love pours through them to you!
He wants His healing love to be a strong part of your own foundation, so that you can know the heaven-sent gift you actually are, without a shadow of a doubt. Treasured, valued, adored, and so much more! From this place of quiet assurance you can love yourself (He will show you how) and see yourself as you truly are. This in turn will allow you to give and receive healthy love from others in the same way.
He has drawn you to Himself so that it could be so. And no matter what, beloved child of the Most High God, He has you in the grip of grace, cradled in the unfailing kindness of His everlasting love. An eternal truth that will never change.
