Jeremiah 31: 3
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
I am in love with God, not because I am great but because He is.
He pursues me. He is the creator of everything but He wants me and I like it.
We have a covenant: when He wants a conversation, He wakes me up during the night.
He wakes me up and we speak of things I would never think of during my quiet times, during the day.
But the thing I like the most is when I wake up with a song for Him in my head. The best is when it is a song I have not thought of for a long time.
I feel important, precious and a lot more.
And when He wants to wink at me, He wakes me up before my alarm clock rings. He tells me : “I cannot wait anymore. I am waiting for you.”
When I am exhausted and overwhelmed, when life is… life, this relationship He offers me day after day gives me the strength to carry on.
I am grateful that Jesus gave me a fresh start with God. I am grateful to have The Lord as my God. I need His love and his presence more than I know. I love having Him around.
I led them with cords of human kindness,
with ties of love.
To them I was like one who lifts
a little child to the cheek,
and I bent down to feed them.
