Even now I watch you with love and pride. Yes, you have fallen. Yes, you have strayed, but every time you come back to Me, by grace, all is not only forgiven, but all is forgotten.
Every day is a clean slate. Don’t separate yourself from Me because of your guilt.
Believe in My forgiveness. Believe in the fresh start I give you every day, and return that forgiveness.
Is that hard for you?
Do you think it is easy for Me when I see you purposely turn your face away? It hurts, dear one.
My love knows no bounds, and when you choose to forsake Me for the pleasures of this world, My choice is to let you go. But you are never out of My care, and with pain, I watch you make small and big mistakes, making the distance between us great.
But what joy as you turn towards Me again! I want to fold you into My arms, overjoyed! You are back! Now we will spend time together! You will grow in Me and My love!
But the process is repeated over and over.
Yet, I will NEVER, EVER GIVE UP ON YOU. You are My chosen love and My delight. Now and forever.
Ephesians 2:8-9 The Passion Translation:
“For by grace you have been saved by faith. Nothing you did could ever earn this salvation, for it was the love gift from God that brought us to Christ! So no one will ever be able to boast, for salvation is never a reward for good works or human striving.”
