Your assignment, should you choose to accept it

Stop and think for a moment of the ways God shows His love for you. If you need to, pull out a piece of paper and begin listing down all the things God does – big and small – to show you His love. Now tuck that list away in a safe place. The next time you wonder if anyone loves you, or what exactly love is, or whether God is for real, you can pull that list out and remind yourself of the greatest love you’ll ever know.

In Isaiah 54:10, your loving Father says, “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken.” This is a love you can cling to. This is a love that won’t fade when you’re no longer a cute little chick magnet, or when a new spouse and stepkids come along. There is nothing you can do to lose God’s love; and there is nothing you can do to get God to love you more, because He already loves you perfectly and completely.
