The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. —2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)
You may have turned your back on me. You may feel as though you’ve lost faith. You may have doubts. Your actions, your thoughts, do not change the truth about my love for you.
I love you!
In my eyes, you are a unique and special creation, and I long to know you personally, to talk with you and walk with you. My love for you is unending — no matter what you do or say or think, I love you. And I always will.
As one of my followers, Paul, writes, in the Bible, this is also my hope for you:
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19 NIV)
When you begin to realize how all-encompassing my love for you is, you’ll understand that I could never turn my back on you. Not only that, I value you. And best of all, I want a relationship with you.
Will you turn to me? Will you come into my waiting arms?
