1 John 3:16 By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us.
"You are loved with an
everlasting love. I speak this word because I want it to sink in and penetrate
to the depths of your soul. I want you to understand with your heart and not
just your head.
My love is a gift
freely given with joy. My love does not depend on your goodness or your
worthiness. My love is.
I gave up My earthly
life so that you would know My eternal love."
The above is taken from a devotional book I just finished reading. Written by Lorraine Marie Varela it's unique in that each verse is "explained" by God Himself!
This, along with the beautiful photographs taken by the author herself, makes for a peaceful and refreshing read.
