Our Papa's love is a love that leaves no child behind, leaves no child out in the cold, leaves no child to fend for himself, leaves no child unloved or uncared for - His is a love that has every one of us, His children, wrapped securely in His arms, tenderly caressed, cherished and adored, safe and sound for all eternity!
I am so thankful we are all wrapped up in a love that cannot fail, a love that brings all the lost and hurting children home, that reveals that we have always been home in His heart and always will be! No matter what story plays out in our lives here on this planet, the bigger story of His love will always be true and will trump every lesser story of sin, shame, fear, confusion and doubt! What a relief to be safe in the arms of the One who IS reality itself, Love Himself, Life Himself! We can't escape Him, hallelujah! In Him we live and move and have our being! We are in Love and we are never going to be out of that Love that holds the universe, holds our existence, holds our end from the beginning, holds our hearts!!
"All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you." Ps. 22:27
For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. This includes you!" Col. 1:19-21a
