If We Really Believed It...


If we honestly, truly believed Jesus passionately loved us...

We might just stop thinking He was mad at us all the time... and we might just stop hiding, hanging our heads and feeling condemned, and instead, feel His approval simply because we belong to Him.

...we might just anticipate happily the day ahead and what time spent with Jesus might bring, instead of dreading the unknown hours to come. We might not be lonely, worried, depressed or afraid.

If we really believed Jesus loved us, then His words to us would mean more than others' criticizing words... and we'd no longer have to break our necks seeking approval... we'd no longer act like achievement is what earns God's acceptance.

...we might just relax and feel better... we might just have some joy and become stronger... we might just stop passing along our own wrong thoughts and hang-ups about God and instead, we might just pass along true peace, true acceptance and the true love from the very heart of Jesus.

If only we really believed it and splashed around in it every single day of our lives...
