A friend of mine posted a blog today here on CB about what I like to refer to as challenges. We all have them. They may come in different packages, they may be different sizes and some hang around for a lot longer than others but they are still challenges that like to threaten to bring us down. Sometimes those challenges are external but often they are internal and truthfully I believe those are the most challenging of all.
A comment another friend posted on her blog struck a chord with me. She told our mutual friend, "I just love you." She went on to say, "That's it. Just love you."
I sat back and thought about that response. I know both of these women and I can say with confidence that the woman who said it, meant it with all of her heart. Then I heard God "whisper" to me, "I just love you. That's it. Just love you."
For a moment I felt His warm embrace. I know that there are times I am very unlovable. There are more times than I could ever count. I know I do not deserve God's love and I know there is nothing I can do that could ever make me worthy of His love. The same is true of every single one of us and yet God still says, "I just love you. That's it. Just love you."

You know what.. those three words can be tossed around so easily like hi and bye and so those words sometimes have no meaning. I have come across those people who say it and but really it holds no value but it s said because it s the right thing to say .
Then There are a few who I know that I know love me, who have held my hand and walked the fire with me. They have also walked the mountain tops too.
That marvellous human being who commented on that blog.. I know she loves me and I know a few on CB whom she loves so when she says it, I believe it! And I m also very fond of her.
Them 3 words I find so hard to say...j think that comes from the fact I never heard them words spoke over me as a child...I make a point of telling my children every day how much they r loved...there s very few people k would say them words 2 but to the people 1 do say it 2 i genuinely mean it....it s amazjng to know but that r Heavenly Father speaks those words over us daily...he loves us unconditionally...keep lifting each other up
In love & prayer xx
I enjoyed your blog, the love that God has for his children is truly amazing, so much in fact that I don't believe in this life we can truly comprehend it. God's love is what we must focus on and abide in. It's His goodness that leads us to repentance .
