You are... loved with an everlasting love

Since Eric & I first started dating he has consistently done the sweetest thing. From time to time he sends me "you are" emails where he writes something really sweet, starting with you are... then followed by a phrase affirming my identity. We have been together for six years now and he still takes time to do this. I have kept every single one, they mean so much to me and they help me remember who I am and how much I am loved. Today I would like to start doing the same thing for us girls, I am going to write a "you are" post from time to time to remind us of who we are as King's Daughters. See it as an email from heaven! It's great fun realising that when we are born again we are adopted into God's family and become princesses :) That is only step one though, the rest of the journey is a beautiful journey of discovering what it means to be a princess. So here is today's precious reminder:

You are... loved with an everlasting love

Jeremiah 31:3
The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you.

Human love is temperamental, conditional and often selfish. If ever you have known any form of human love you will know this and you will know that it's not enough to meet your need for love. As daughters of God, we are loved unconditionally with a love that is secure and will never change. Meditate on this as often as possible and understand that you can't earn this love and you can't loose this love. It is yours no matter what you do and no matter how good or bad you have been. This is a love you can depend on and always feel if you allow God's love into your heart. His love is perfect and precious and life changing. Once you get this into your identity you will find that you start to love others differently too.

Have a lovey weekend and soak up the fact that you are loved.
