Thought to share: I chose you. I wanted to be in a relationship with you. I knew all the messy details of your life and still I wanted to be with you. So stop trying to impress ME. Quit trying to earn MY love. Don’t shrink in fear when you don’t get it right. MY love for you is based upon ME and MY character – not on who you are or what you do. So rest in MY never changing love.
John 15:16 (NLT) You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
Romans 5:8 (NLT) But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
1John 4:19 (Msg) He loved us first.
