Sunday Selah

Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
Psalm 36:5

He loves you.
He does.

I know we throw that phrase around a lot...God Loves You.

We say it in chirpy little voices to each other and slap it on situations large, medium and small.

Let those words never become trite to us.

He loves you.

I create, from time to time. I bake bread. I paint a wall. I sew an item. And I usually like what I've made. It's nice. It serves a purpose.

But I don't love it. Not to the point of sacrificing something dear to save it.

If the bread flops, it flops. If the paint color on the wall is wrong, it's wrong. If I sew something and it ends up all wonky, I toss it.

But the Creator of you and me doesn't toss us away. He loves us. And to cement and validate that love, He makes incredible sacrifice to make us His own.

He loves you.

The Maker of cells, stars, skies and shins loves you. The One who designed eyes, ears and elephants loves you. The Righteous God sees your unrighteousness, my unrighteousness and loves us.

He loves you.

Right now. In this moment. Even in the midst of the current messes and mayhems of our lives.

He loves you.

And just thought you should know.

Selah.
