But most of all, He is our Father who watches His children walk away every single day — and certainly He knows this heartbreak better than we do. Because it is only Love incomprehensible that sees the wickedness in our hearts and calls for us, wanting to wash us clean time and time again. It is only Love incomprehensible that forgives time and time again, as we walk away knowing full well we are doing it. It is only Love incomprehensible that has His heart broken over His children every moment, and yet suffers long that we might repent and return.
So know this, beloved: He loves you more than you could know. He loves you more than you could ever have dreamed of, and His love will never let go of you.
Lift up your face and look to God, because His mercies are new every morning. Trust God and trust His Word, because in Him we have redemption. He knows the messy and the ugly parts; He has seen the brokenness and hurt in your heart. Bring all of you to Him; the good and the bad, the weak and the weary. Thank Him for His goodness. Thank Him for His faithfulness. He is here with you, and He is making you new.
When we fight those battles that seem to never be ending, He sees opportunities for us to grow into grace. When we let in His scarred hands and their healing touch, He can turn what we see as our marred marks into strength and beauty. When we want to shield ourselves from further hurts, God’s gentle grace comes and tells us we can trust Him to walk with us through every hurt and healing.
