By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love,
and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:13-16




I didn’t ask for flowers
I didn’t ask for cards
I didn’t ask for candy
Though they show precious love.


I didn’t ask for money
I didn’t ask for gold
I didn’t ask for diamonds
Though they’re lovely to behold.


I only asked forgiveness
And in this truth I rest
Of Jesus’ most precious gift
His blood He willingly shed.


I bowed my head so humbled
That He died on a cross for me
On my knees I crumpled
Sobbing tears of agony.


Overwhelmed and overflowing
My heart could not contain
The love that flowed within me
As He gently spoke my name.


“I love you, my dear daughter,
I always have and always will
You are the most precious diamond
Refined on Redemption’s Hill.


“I’ll never leave you, nor forsake you
I’ll never break any of My promises
I’ll always be right here within and beside you
I love you for time and eternity.”

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I can’t help but think about how much Jesus must love you and me to not only be born of a virgin and live a sinless life; but to also grow up knowing he would die to save all people (past, present, and future) from their sins.


That’s just love. So. Much. Love.


Did you know that there is absolutely nothing ― NO THING ― that we can do that is so bad God won’t forgive us for it? 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Every. Single. Time.


If you are feeling far away from God or if you feel like God is unreachable, won’t you find a quiet place to kneel before Him and confess your sins so He can purify your heart and you won’t feel so far away anymore?


From My Heart to Yours,
