Hello sweet friends! I hope you all are covered up with the reminder of how much you are loved this weekend! I am so sorry to say that I have yet to sit and read all of your wonderful posts about the event. I am hoping that opportunity is coming this week. Thank you for writing and sharing and linking up! I wanted to stop in and wish you all a wonderful weekend and let you know how much you are loved by Him.
Whether or not you go to church tomorrow.
Whether or not you "dress up" if you do decide to go to church tomorrow.
Whether or not you are made to feel welcome.
Whether you sit on the front row or the back row or in the comfort of your own home.
Whether you own a bible or not.
Whether you have ever prayed a single prayer or not.
Whether you know one scripture or not.
Whether you know one word to one, single song or not.
You are loved.
Maybe this is the first time you have ever heard those things.
They are true...
He doesn't base His love for you on any of those things.
You are loved unconditionally. No matter what.
He cares that you know how much you are loved by Him and He desires a relationship with you....
I pray that you would find yourself absolutely saturated by the love of the Father this Easter weekend sweet friends.... His love has no address. It is not reserved just for church folks. It is not reserved just for the "good girls."
I can remember never wanting to attend church because I never felt "good enough."
I believed that lie for way too many years.
And then once I learned the truth- I didn't want to just "attend" church anyway.
I wanted to worship Him.
I wanted to learn about Him. His nature. His character. His heart. His love.
I wanted to say "thank you."
You don't have to be "good" to be loved by Him. That's the good news.
He didn't rise from the grave just for the self proclaimed "good people."
He rose from the grave for every, single one of us.
His grace is for every, single one of us.
His love is for every, single one of us.
And I just wanted to share those truths with you this Easter weekend.....
