We Are Loved And Accepted For Free
We are loved and accepted for free. Without our trying to achieve it. Without our effort to make it so. Without our help at all. We are loved and accepted right now, as we are. Not as we hoped we'd be. Not as we wish we'd be. Loved and accepted as who we are in this moment. And any moment. Accepted no matter what we've done in the past. Accepted no matter what we will do in the future. It's ours forevermore.
We are loved and accepted for free. Without any possibility of losing this wonderful gift. Without any risk of rejection. Without any risk of ever being unloved or unaccepted. No matter what happens. No matter what people say. No matter what lies the enemy hurls at us. No matter how confused or doubtful we get. No matter what failure grips us. We are loved and accepted still. It's free, so nothing we do or don't do can change it. It's ours without condition, no strings attached.
We are loved and accepted for free. No matter what we feel. No matter what we think. No matter what we've done in the past that fills us with regret. No matter how much we think we've failed or gone too far. No matter whether we feel hopeless or despairing. No matter whether we feel all is lost. No matter whether we feel all alone. We are loved and accepted no matter what!
We are loved and accepted for free. There is a light shining upon us. There is a hand in ours. There is a voice calling our name. There are arms wrapped around us. There is a wind lifting and carrying us. There is a breeze blowing on our face. There is a Lover loving us and calling us beautiful, forgiven, free, and delightful. There is a place where all is Perfect Love. There is hope, joy and peace. There is a home for our heart. We are loved and accepted for free!
We are loved and accepted for free. It is already true. We simply see and enjoy what is already there!
But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us. (Rom. 5:8)
It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself (accepting them), not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them].. (2 Co. 5:19)
Jesus is God loving and accepting us for free! Thank You God for Your unspeakable gift!
With love to all from
