So what thoughts have crossed your mind when you think about unconditional? What emotions do you feel?
I think of the color blue – just like the sky – vast without boundaries, beautiful. I think of how the birds soar in the sky, total freedom.
I think of a grandparent’s love (for some) – the amazing ability to love their grandkids no matter what they look like, act like, or any other set rule; just love.
Then I think of the relationship I have with my husband – October 9th makes 12 years of marriage for us. I think of the ups and downs we’ve experienced and yet we have been blessed in that the Lord has really worked in our marriage to give us unconditional love for one another.
But what if none of this rings true for you? What if you are like so many that don’t know about a spouse’s unconditional love or maybe a grandparent’s love, then what? That is where the Lord comes in. Each and every one of us, no matter the situation we find ourselves in can partake in unconditional love through a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ – no strings attached! Once you ask the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and be your Lord and Master you have instantly opened the door to unconditional love – no strings attached! Isn’t that amazing? The creator of the universe thinks you are worth His love no matter what you look like, no matter what you’ve done, no matter what you think or do, no matter what you’ve done in the past or in the future, NO MATTER WHAT!
That is the way that we each need to view unconditional; it is a gift given just because. And just like you would want your child to do – open the gift and totally embrace the freedom of unconditional love from the Father – no strings attached. So what are you waiting for? Go create, go dance, go sing, but most of all – go enjoy the life you’ve been given and the freedom to soar in the blue sky of unconditional Father love. Blessings!
