I have two: " My precious, precious child, I would never leave you nor forsake you." Jesus-
It reminds me that ,like eve , for example ;purposes only- no matter what i'm feeling, or doing, or not doing, whatever "sin" action or behavior that I know is hurtful to myself or others, whether i'm in church or in a bar, in acceptance or rebellion he loves me. I am his child, he knows my heart, and like eve he just wants us to stop hiding from him. He doesn't expect us to be perfect, his greatest commandment was to love one another. and then he goes on to say love is patient, and kind, and keeps no score, etc...... and He loves us like this! so much. I'm also reminded of this when I look at nature, children, hope is a persons eyes, etc... He never leaves me of forsakes me, no matter what the devil trys to tell you. Youu are always wanted, just say hello.
Ok sorry for the preach but God is not about punishment, when you love someone you want to please them and them you. He just wants a relationship with those who are willing to give him a lil time.
My second: My husband said it to me last night after horrible fight where i said mean and cruel things, where I felt indifferent towards him as a person and after all was said and done I was just ashamed of my inner anger and resntment and selfishness, etc.. I asked him How he could ever forgive me, did he hate me? He replied, and God knows he's no angel either but he said, ""I may not always like you, but I vowed to love you." Wow! epiphany for me. thanks :) for reading if you got it this far.
