Hello friends! I’ve been working on something, which led to a series of thoughts… which led me to hop on here and quickly share something with you. 🙂 Lately I’ve been making “spirit buttons” to sell locally in one of our town’s gift shops.
As I was making this batch of Valentine buttons, the Lord kept bringing to mind verses in His Word where He pours His love over us. As much as we enjoy sharing our love to others, especially on holidays like Valentine’s Day, God IS love, and pours His infinite love over us every day.
In Conversation Heart style, this is how God expresses His love to us:
BE MINE – God wants us to accept His love.
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NLT)
ALL MINE – God loves us and will keep us.
My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them real and eternal life. They are protected from the Destroyer for good. No one can steal them from out of my hand. The Father who put them under my care is so much greater than the Destroyer and Thief. No one could ever get them away from him. I and the Father are one heart and mind. John 10:27-30 (MSG)
TRUE LOVE – God loves us with true love as only He can.
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you. Jeremiah 31:3 (AMP)
HUG ME – God offers you His protective embrace.
The Eternal God is your shelter; He holds you up in His everlasting arms. Deut. 33:27 (The Voice)
I’M SURE – God is sure of His love for us and wants us to know we can be sure of a future with Him.
Jesus said to his disciples, “Don’t be worried! Have faith in God and have faith in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s house. I wouldn’t tell you this, unless it was true. I am going there to prepare a place for each of you. After I have done this, I will come back and take you with me. Then we will be together. John 14:1-3 (CEV)
SWEET TALK – God’s Word is His love letter to us.
How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey. Psalm 119:103 (NLT)
LOVE ME – God tells us how to love Him back.
If you love me, obey my commandments… Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them. John 14:15 & 21 (NLT)
CALL ME – God loves us so much He wants to communicate with us.
Call to Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you of great things, things beyond what you can imagine, things you could never have known. Jeremiah 33:3 (The Voice)
The next time you pick up a box of Conversation Hearts, or GIVE a box of Conversation Hearts, will you let it be a reminder of God, the All Mighty One, who loves you so?
