When I say I love you, I am speaking to you personally. I’m speaking to those who feel far away and distant from My love. I am talking to you who feel that you have failed and there is no forgiveness to be found, or who feel as if there is no hope. If you feel like this, the following message is for you.

If you feel unworthy, as if there is no way back to Me; if you feel weak and weary, as if you don’t have one ounce of strength left to walk another mile; if you feel tired and plain tuckered out—this message is for you. If you feel you’ve lost your inspiration; if you feel you’ve lost that driving motivation to make it one more day, one more step, one more hour, these words are for you. If you feel you’ve turned your back on Me and that I couldn’t possibly understand the pain and the burdens of your heart, this message is for you.

If you feel like giving up, and wonder what’s the use of trying, I’m speaking to you. If you feel like a great big mess, I want you to know that I love you. If you feel like you don’t have it in you to reach the goals set before you, this message is for you. If you feel lost and lonely and confused, and if you are doubting, I love you in spite of it all.

If you feel you have failed Me time and again, draw close to Me and let My peace encompass you. If you feel inadequate and too sinful to be worthy of My love, I want you to remember that I love you and gave My life for you! If you feel overwhelmed, as if you’re drowning in an ocean of woes, I love you and am with you.

My love is reaching out to you. My forgiveness and mercy are yours to have, if you will only receive them. My love for you cannot be quenched by the flood waters. My love for you reaches up to the highest star and down to the depths of the deepest sea! My love for you is always and forever.

If you feel weak and battle-worn and weary, this message is for you. If you feel you are fainting in your mind, fainting in heart and soul, this message is for you. If you think your zeal has left you and you feel like you are all washed up, remember that I love you from now until eternity!

If you have toiled long and hard through the years, and you stand looking in the mirror, wondering what you have to show for your life, this message is for you—My love for you is unfailing and unchanging.

If you are standing on the threshold of new horizons, feeling overwhelmed at the challenges ahead, anxious about the future, if you feel you don’t have it in you to meet the need that lies before you, I want you to know that My love will see you through.

I love you as if you were the only one—so much so that I was willing to go to the cross and die for you. I see your love and faithfulness to Me and your labors of love for others. I am not stacking up all your faults and failures, or mistakes and blunders. I see the good and the possibilities that others may not see. I only see your precious heart—and I love you.

I see your every tear. I hear your every cry. I feel your every frustration, your every worry, your every burden, your every desire. I know everything about you—all your wants, all your lacks. I see your heart and all that is in it, and you are precious to Me.

I long to comfort, to soothe, and to heal your every heartache and calm your every worry and fear. I wish to bring clarity to your confusion and to soothe your ruffled nerves. I am with you always—through whatever deep, dark experience or dense fog you find yourself in or confusion or frustration you have bottled up inside.

My precious child who feels far away, I long for you to know that I am always with you. I have never left you, and I will never, ever forsake you.

I have called you and I long to draw you close to My bosom of love. You are Mine. I fought for you, I bled for you, I died for you, and now My Spirit dwells in you! You are Mine for all eternity.

Loved all the way to the cross

My love for you is so great that it caused Me to undertake My mission on Earth to reclaim you and raise you up to new life. For this I died, that you might find the way, the truth, and the life, that you might discover to whom you belong and your eternal identity in Me.

As I suffered, as I bled and died for you, My great love for you sustained Me. As Pilate’s lashes thrashed My back, your redemption was ever before Me. As the soldiers spat on Me and mocked Me and thrust the crown of thorns onto My head, your salvation gave Me strength to endure. As I carried the cross through the streets, and as I fell to My knees, weak and weary with the burden of it all, My love for you gave Me the strength to carry on. As I hung on the cross in shame and pain, I remembered that through this death you would live for all eternity in heaven.

I have loved you from everlasting to everlasting, so great a love story is My love for you! I have implanted My love and Spirit deep in your heart to sustain you on your journey through life—that you might find strength and faith and hope to carry on.

I placed a void in your heart so you could be full to overflowing with My love—so that you would have love enough and the power of My Spirit to sustain you until the day when you come home at last to the place that I have prepared for you.

When you feel alone and you have fallen on hard times, that is the time to come to Me, to rest and find peace in My presence. And when you are discouraged and you feel like you have made a mess of things, look up into My face and see Me smile upon you with My unconditional love that never leaves or forsakes you.

When you feel worried or anxious, bring all your cares to Me. If you feel that no one can possibly understand the trials that you are passing through, I always understand. Bring Me every problem or burden, and all the worries and the cares of life, and you will find rest for your soul.

When you feel weak, I will be Your strength. When you feel confusion, I will give you My peace that surpasses all understanding. When you feel fearful, I will comfort your heart. When you feel strain, I will bring relief. When all seems dark and stormy, I will be your shining light.

When you are in need of direction and guidance, I will lead the way and light your path. When you feel tired, I will be your rest. When you feel lost, I am with you to remind you that you have already been found for all eternity.  

My love for you is so vast, and I love you like no other ever will! I love you now and I will love you forever.
