God loves you.
No only does He love you, but He is Love.
And He is whole.
God’s not broken like you & I, and all those broken ones who love each other in ways that hurt.
For all of us are broken until He makes us whole.
Like He is.
God isn’t broken, so He doesn’t love as broken humanity does.
He loves wholly from who He is, Love itself.
And not only does Love find us, it restores us to wholeness through its continuous outpouring of love.
Love makes us worthy.
My definition of worth?
Worth = the value placed by the purchaser on the object of His desire.
His very Love came down, put on flesh & bone, and lived among us.
Showing us He is Love through the Son.
Even to the cross, taking on our sins…because He desired for us to know our true worth.
God Himself loved us worthy through Jesus’ life & death.
The perfect Lamb, the only One worthy of it all, laid down His worth to show us our value to Him.
God believes us worth His Love.
Worthy of Him.
Not because of anything we could ever do.
Because of the Son.
His Love is Himself, actively pursuing each of us.
He IS Love.
When we spend time in His Presence, we cannot help but soak in that Love.
And we are changed through the Son shining on us.
As we live out our daily lives, something fantastic happens because of our time spent soaking in His Love.
We begin to reflect it.
The Son radiates Himself, love, through us.
The Worthy One uses the ones He made worthy to reach those do not yet know their true worth, and those who need the reminder.
We reflect His Love on all we encounter.
We reflect Him.
With the sun beginning to shine more and more on me here in Southern Ontario with the arrival of spring, it is seen in the new growth, the warmth & the reflection on the water.
May we too reflect His love, Him so that others will grow, find their true Love & see themselves through His eyes: as Beloved.

Hi I’m your neighbor today on Purposeful Faith. We have to let His love soak in and love “large” just as He did.
Amen! Love large, love it! #PurposefulFaith

Thank you for reframing my thoughts of worth. It is not my determination of it, but his. That is powerful. I am humbled. Your words speak! Cheering you on from the #RaRalinkup on Purposeful Faith.
Delighted you were blessed by His words thru me, Kelly! Cheers, Karla #RaRalinkuo
Karla, I love this insight: “The perfect Lamb, the only One worthy of it all, laid down His worth to show us our value to Him.” He laid His worth down to show us our value to Him … praying I reflect His glory. Thank you, Karla, for sharing your heart at #IntentionalTuesday on Intentionally Pursuing. : )
Hey Crystal! Glad you visited today. I appreciate the encouragement! #IntentionalTuesday
