Some of the greatest love stories often spring from some of life’s greatest tragedies. When I had shipwrecked my life in the raging storms of sin, God, by His love reached out and touched me. I spent my entire Christian life running from His love. But when I lay helplessly beached on the shore, He reminded me of His promises: “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭31:3‬) ‭http://bible.com/1/jer.31.3.kjv.

When God draws us by love it’s a story we never forget!

At the bottom of my mess, when I deserved judgement–God showed me love. My eyes overflowed with tears of repentance! He surrounded me with love beyond my greatest imagination. This happened six years ago. The rebuilding process hasn’t been easy or fast. I had developed many sinful habits. All He had to work with was a willing heart and a ton of wreckage. Through His love and mercy, He’s made someone beautiful. It’s been a daily process. In order to have His rebuilding tools, my day must begin with Him. As His presence changes my heart, He heals everything else as well. It’s a beautiful love story. His love has forever changed my life!

When we experience the miracles of His transforming power, we never want to sail into the raging storms of sin again. It’s not worth it. God desires us despite our great transgressions against Him. It’s a powerful testament to His love. The Bible says: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:8‬)‬‬‬‬ God’s love toward us is the greatest love story we’ll ever know. No one will ever love us like He does. He gave His life for us and the greatest love we can experience is to give ours for Him. When we seek God, we find His love and we become part of His great love story for us!‬‬‬‬
