Love is not partial.
It reaches out to everyone;
Whether you are big or small,
Rich or poor,
Sick or healthy,
Honest or dishonest,
Happy or sad,
Love is available to you.
You do not need to do anything special.
Just open your heart
And love in the form of Jesus will enter.
He specializes in:
He sees your need and He provides.
So why do you think you should bear your burdens all by yourself, filling your heart with bitterness?
Lay your burdens down and give Jesus a chance.
Ask Him to help you.
He will do it no questions asked.
Lean on Jesus;
His love is available to all.
In what ways do these words speak to you? Leave a response in comments below.
Not sure what lies ahead.
No peace within.
Joy a distant memory.
Broken by life’s living.
Tormented by the past;
Awash with guilt and the consequences of inept decisions.
My failures constantly LOUD and in my face.
I was doomed
In the stillness of the night;
A still small voice from within:
“I love you!
You are so much more than these that occupy your thoughts”
Me with my dark unbearable past? NOT POSSIBLE!
And so my mind wrestled with this still small voice.
This voice was relentless in its pursuit.
It erased the negative thoughts that had ensnared me.
It lifted me from the pit I had made my home
I can sing Psalms of praise.
Joy and peace are my best friends.
My feet are strengthened in my thanksgiving dance.
Life and life more abundantly enfolds me.
Love reached down to the lowest ebb of my life and lifted me to soar with eagles.
Jesus’ compassion reaches beyond our faults,
Rescues us from certain death
And places us on a path to life everlasting.
Jesus also known as Love rescued me.
He wants to rescue you too.
Give his still small voice a chance to speak with you.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7 NIV)
You feel alone. No one cares. You have experienced loss of:
The devil wants you to believe that no one cares. No one will help you. It is every man/woman for him/her self. This is the devil doing what he does best, his usual chicanery. Nothing is farther from the truth.
The Most High God has His agents dispatched all around us. You just have to reach out and they will appear. God's unconditional love is available to all persons. You cannot sink too low or rise too high to escape His love. He gives it freely, no questions asked. Sometimes He responds through His Holy Spirit, at other times through angels and yet other times through other people.
So if you are feeling less than yourself, call on God. He will answer.

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. (Luke 6:35 NIV)
Love your enemies. What was Jesus thinking? He expects me to love the very persons who do not mean me any good. Not an unpassionate like but a passionate love. Impossible you may say but He modeled it perfectly for us when He went to the cross for my sins and for your sins. He went knowing that some of us would reject Him totally while others of us would reject Him some of the times. Yet He went. That is unconditional love. And so He calls us to love unconditionally: "love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back".
Child of God, are you prepared to love unconditionally?
We will never do it if we rely on our own strength but Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit who will enable us to love even our enemies - expecting nothing in return.
