"God's love is a gift that can make you forget yourself at times. The Scottish writer George MacDonald said,"It is the heart that is not yet sure of its God that is afraid to laugh in His presence."
So often with old people and children, all sense of what would be appropriate is swallowed up in what feels right. That's refreshing. We waste too many years between childhood and our older years measuring our behavior on a scale we think we see in someone else's eyes.
God loves us as we are right now! That's one of the things I'm most grateful for. I love the freedom to be myself in God. I pray that a year from now, five years from now, I will be a godlier woman, but I know God won't love me any more than he does right this minute!
Let me tell you, you can run in out of the cold, sit by the fire, put up your feet, and just be yourself. You are loved, you are loved. you are loved!" -Sheila Walsh
"I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you." - Jeremiah 31:3
That is a loyal love, a "covenant" love coming from God himself down through the generations to "me" this very day! Just as Sheila Walsh stated above . . . "you can run in out of the cold, sit by the fire, put up your feet, and just be yourself. You are loved, you are loved. you are loved!" -Sheila Walsh
