My child, I have been watching you. I am always watching you and it is good. You have been working very hard trying to be faithful to what I have given you to do. All your effort because of your love for Me, makes me smile. I delight in you!
But you need to know it is not your hard work and sacrifice which causes my delight. I delight in you merely because you are!
I know all your weaknesses and short-comings. I am aware every time you fail and fall short. But this does not change my unequivocal, supernatural, infinite love for you. It is not about what you do, but who you are.
My love is not to be compared with the love one human being has for another. Human love gives an inkling of what my love is about, but my love is so much greater and beyond what you can imagine, words fail to express the height, depth and breadth of it. My love is all encompassing. My love is who I am. I cannot be separated from My love for you. My love is not dependent upon your response. It simply is.
I cannot be understood without understanding my boundless, merciful love. My love is patient. My love is unwavering, never-ending and unchanging. I will wait your entire life, longing for you, waiting for you to love Me back. And even if in the end you decide you still don’t love Me, My love for you will remain.
My love is kind. I cannot do anything unkind to you because it is contrary to My very nature.
I do not envy, for there is no reason. I am all in all and everything. I am above all things and in Me all things live and move and have their being. There is nothing I want which I do not have except at times your heart and there is nothing better than the way I have caused things to be.
I do not boast, nor am I proud, for I simply AM.
Because I am love, I will always treat you with dignity and respect. You are of infinite value to Me. You are so important to me in My love, that all I do is for You.
Through Jesus and My mercy, I am continually pouring Myself out for your sake, and seek nothing for myself but the hope of Your love and respect (and adoration) in return. Mercy is the first fruit of My love. I understand who you are and of what you are capable (both good and bad) because I made you.
I know how young or mature you are in your spiritual walk and what you have yet to learn and so in My love I do not anger easily, though just like I created gravity so what goes up must come down, there are consequences to the choices you make.
Though you will not always choose My way, and I know every wrong you have committed against me, the moment you come to me and ask forgiveness, as far as the east is from the west (infinite distance!), so far are these sins removed and all forgotten. I will no longer hold any of the things you have done against you. I have washed you clean. You are purified. You are mine.
My heart aches whenever you chose those ways which will take you further from Me, even though I will always respect your free-will choice. I will work things out for as long as your physical life lasts so that always, always you have yet another opportunity to choose My way.
I am love, but I am also truth and there is no other. I know that the fullness of joy which I desire to pour into you – the deep life satisfaction and fulfillment – is only in My way. My heart is that you would find it. It is never My desire that you fail. I am beside you always.
When you choose Me, then I can come even closer and in My love enable the complete covering of protection and provision for You which is My deepest desire.
My love will never stop. I believe in you because I know how capable I made you. I will always be here for you, whenever you decide to turn and seek.
And when we are One, My love will overflow through you and My joy and yours will be complete, no matter what, forever.
