“Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way!” Jude 1:2 (MSG)
All of our life we may have waited for love to come, then when it came, the pain that came with it caused us to push it away. Life and a string of broken hearts can teach us to close the door, and close it tight! It is better this way. Safer. We may not feel fully alive as we had hoped, but at least we are not paralyzed by the pain.
Then Jesus comes, His voice soft and sure, full of promise and hope, and whispers to our hurting heart, “Trust Me. Rest. Everything is going to be okay. My love has come to rescue you. My love is on the way”. He gently beckons us if we can, to open our hearts wide and believe. “I am safe”, He says, “Good things are ahead and you are not going to want to miss this”!
You can trust Him; He is trustworthy in every way. In all you have known before, hoped for, or dreamed of, at last everything is going to work out right. Your heart is in His hands and lovely one, there is no better place for it to be!
His is a love that will build you up, not tear you down, will support, encourage, and cheer you on. Love that is for you at all times, not set against you—a love that does not care who you were, but is completely focused on who you are made to be! Pure, true, abiding love, in unlimited measure, always available. Lean into it today dearest heart, that is His heaven-sent provision and His deepest desire. In Him you are accepted, chosen and cherished, and you belong!
