What is love?

We can't deny it. All of us want to be loved unconditionally and not have to worry about that love dying over time.

Some people seek love from earthy possessions. Such as animals. I know I love having pets. They love you now matter what, they listen and they don't judge you. As long as they get food and shelter in return.

But sometimes people want more then just the love they get from their pets. So they seek love from the people around them. But there are worries that we all get at one point or another. Worries that the devil has planted into our mind and that taunt us.

"I'm not pretty or skinny. They'll never love me like they would love that other pretty girl. And she's so nice and thin!"

But their love will only get us so far. What we all need is love from someone who's love will never end. Someone who will love us no matter out looks, our size or our age.

I have felt the urge to be loved. My parents love me, my siblings love me, and my Father loves me.

And when I say Father, I mean God, my heavenly Father. The one who created me and the world.

Of course if you are reading this blog, you must already know about how much God loves us and always will.

But if you don't, and you just happened to sort of stumble across this blog. Please read on.

God, our Father. The Father of every person that has ever existed, loves us more then we could ever imagine. He loves us unconditionally and His love is ever-lasting.

Now whenever I think about subjects such as Forever and infinite, I actually get slightly confused. Because those are two very large words. Both mean never ending and for all time.

When I think about how God loves me forever and infinitely, I feel so overwhelmed with joy. His love is pure, and it puts life into me. I thirst for the knowledge that will draw me closer to Him.

When things go wrong in my life, I try not to blame someone who loves me so much to give me life in the first place.

This scripture is so powerful for me:

Psalm 143:8
"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. ” 

It reminds me to trust God for all my needs. Including the love I need to make it through life without falling.
