Day 8 of “the 30 day praise challenge”
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
Today’s challenge was praising God for His unwavering, everlasting love.
My earthly father broke my heart when I was thirteen. I will never forget the moment, he sat me and my brother down to declare he was going to divorce our mom. He said, “He had gotten married to young and had children to young. He just couldn’t do it anymore!” My teenage brain scrambled to come to terms with these statements and I ultimately concluded that I was a mistake. I would live with these conclusions plaging my thoughts for nearly 25 years.
God has taken the wound left by earthly father and over the past five years replaced it with unconditional everlasting love. As I sat back in praise this morning; it was like curling up in Father God’s lap and laying my head on his shoulder. I could hear the whispers of His sweet voice, “I love you with an everlasting love”. All is well with my soul and thank you God for loving me into wellness.
