Psalm 119:28-29 My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Take from me the way of lying; let me find grace through your law.
The last words I spoke were: “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he answered, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” I hungered and thirsted for love that day as I hung on a cross next to Jesus.
Now, love overflows. Here I am, dandled by love. Cradled by love. Loved by pure love, for now and all eternity, with Jesus. I breathe love. I see love. And, most miraculous of all, I feel that I am love—a child of God’s love, reaching out to share that love with others.
MOVING FORWARD: When have you felt Jesus’s complete and total love? Share that story with someone who may need some encouragement today.
