I recently started giving each verse an introduction, for example:
"God wants you to know..." or "God says," etc.
Our verse for this past week was Jeremiah 31:3:
"I have loved you with an everlasting love."
Along with memorizing this verse, we also learned the definition of "everlasting."
Everlasting: forever, eternal.
When we first started learning this verse, I broke it down into two parts.
I first read, "God wants you to know... I have loved you...."
I paused for a minute, before hearing The Green Owl respond with a cheerful,
It made me smile.
Even though this is a very simple truth,
it is strong, bold, life changing, life giving, beautiful,
important, captivating, worth celebrating.
This type of love is found in knowing Jesus.
Wherever you are, whatever you may be doing,
whatever you may be feeling,
I pray that you feel this love.
