He loves you. This is the beautiful and sufficient truth that the well-worn but never worn-out Word speaks from crinkly pages and red letters. Ancient but ever-new…the Word that was, that is, and will be speaks for your heart. You are loved. Precious. Cherished.
And He doesn’t expect you to fix things on your own. He doesn’t expect you to muscle-up enough to hold your problems, your sorrows, your fears. He doesn’t want you to struggle, pulling along the weight of yesterday.
He loves you. So He says to leave all of that up to Him, to cast all your anxieties upon Him. He says that when you’re weak, He’ll be strong for you.
There isn’t anything that will scare Him away. There isn’t anything too spun out of control. There is nothing out of His reach, nothing He cannot redeem.
He knows you. He loves you.
It’s marvelous and it’s simple…it’s what the whole story comes to…the love of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit reaching out and delighting in the love you offer in return.
