True Love

"Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so...."
...for the bible tells me so
not "for I've followed Him flawlessly"
or "for I've been so faithful"
but simply,
for the bible tells me so...
Love's barometer is not set (or upset) by our behavior
He loves you because He loves you because He loves you
not because of "good works which you've done"
not because of anything you've done
(or not done)
but rather because of who you are,
His creation
His chosen
His child...
Jesus loves you this I know,
for the bible tells me so.
"I have loved you with an everlasting love"
-Jeremiah 31:3


  1. One of my all time favorites. Simple, yet profound. Very nice, H.

  2. I am so very thankful for this truth!
    Thank you for the reminder, it came on a morning my heart, mind and soul needed it!


  3. Thanks, D....I'm glad it hit the bullseye.....

  4. Glad I could return the favor, Mary....your words so often are a balm for me as well.

  5. L, I love the
    beauty woven
    in the simple
    truth of your

    And I want to
    thank you for
    the lovely ones
    that you left for
    me on a recent
    post that I wrote
    about my GiGi.
    They really meant
    so much to me!
