After a Bible study, this question kept on resounding in my ear, "Why you love me God?" I knew I am not the good one that the world defines yet why do you chose to love me. So why would a Holy, Good and Righteous God chose to love me?
I realized that we humans are reactive by nature. We will normally give back what we receive. In short we are good at returning favors. If someone gives love, we give back the love. But, that is entirely different from God. We have not given Him anything yet He gave us His everything. He loved us despite us not loving Him. He chose to save us yet we chose to leave Him. So why is it Lord that you love me? I cannot offer you anything that You don't have. All I have is my life and I know it isn't enough. Am I playing religion again trying to pay you back? But why do you love me? If someone knows me the way you do, I know they will find a reason not to love me. But you, oh Lord you chose to love me. Why? Why? Why?
He answered me with this, "It's because I do". It is only then that I realized that there are things not meant to be explained but are meant to be felt. I may never understand why you chose to love me. But I will can always accept that Love. That kind of love that gives me joy and satisfaction. That kind of love that teaches me to accept and to forgive. That kind of love that knows no boundaries. Lord, I pray that all people in the world knows that you love all of us. Because it is the sweetest thing to know. It is the most freeing knowledge of all. May we also love people the way you love us.
Thank you Lord for your love. I may not know why you do it. But I enjoy being a recipient of it. Thank you Lord. Make me love you forever. That you will be the center of my life. That you will be my utmost high. My number one!!! My only one!!! I rejoice being in Your presence!!! I love you Lord!!!! In Jesus' name, amen!!!!
