No conditions

22 Sep

Today was a pretty ‘ouch!’ day.

Our hearts are so vulnerable that it makes it an even greater wonder how God loves us. Even when he tells me what I do not want to hear at the time, I trust him. Because my heart has known no firmer centre, and never will. This covenant is mine.

We are so clumsy with each other and in our interactions. And yet, God meets each of us in our most vulnerable, off-guard moments and still holds our hearts, emotions and his relationship with us as infinitely precious as an old, pressed leaf that would crumble if the faintest vein does not rest on firm fingers. He never lets go.

Unconditional love. It’s the most beautiful assurance in the world, and we’re called to give it.

Ecce, Dominus.
