He makes me feel so loved so special as if I alone am His. He watches out for my every need and even knows what I need before I do. It’s like he sees into my very soul. When I need rest, he knows exactly when to let me rest. He provides for my food and my very life sustenance. He talks with me and assures me when I get stressed out with life. He encourages me and urges me to have ‘me’ time to reflect on the events and challenges of the day.
When I am not sure of what to do, we talk and he guides me in the right direction. He does this because he loves me; because of our relationship, I am a reflection of him. There are times when I think I am walking alone through a situation and sometimes there seems to be no ‘light at the end of this tunnel.’ But, then I realize that all I need to do is call on him and he is right there with me anytime, anywhere.
Knowing that he loves me, I can face any trial, any disaster, any event that comes my way. He is my protector and defender and I know that he would even lay down his life for me. Yet, his love is also refining in the sense that if I am tempted to stray away, the thought of living without him keeps me close by his side.
When I am surrounded with life’s challenges and feel like giving up and raising the white flag of surrender, he is there with a table full of provisions to strengthen me with courage. He renews my spirit with joy so refreshing that I am filled within my very being to overflowing with freshness of life, renewed vigor, and peace all stemming from the security of his love.
My journey is full of goodness and I do not feel as if I need to constantly be earning his love. I know that we will be together forever no matter what today may bring my way to challenge our love. My life is secure in his love and he promised me that he would always be by my side.
Have you ever been loved like this before? Nothing in life will ever compare to the perfect love that I have found. My hope for you is that you will find this love because you were created to experience love like this. I want you to meet my God. He is my love and this is how He loves me. He wants to love you like this, too.
Psalm 23 is one of His love letters to you.
