Because I Love You, Because I Love You, Because I Love You, Because I Love You, Because I Love You


It’s a long paragraph of some pretty profound words.  This is from a song I listened to last night by Jonathan David Helser called Inheritance.  I’m sorry if it all flows together, but enjoy it, take it in, meditate upon it.

The Lord says there is nothing you can do that would make him love you more.  There is also nothing you can do that would make him love you less.  He loves you because he loves you, because he loves you, because he loves you.  Because that is what he is like.  It is his nature to love and you will always be the beloved.  And his love is unchanging and he loves you 100%.  He won’t love you any when you become better.  He loves you 100% right now.  And even if you have no plans to become better He will still love you 100%.  Because he loves you, because he loves you, because he loves you, because he loves you, because he loves you.  Because that’s the way He is.  And even if you don’t want to change He will love you 100%.  Because that’s his nature because he loves all the way, all the time.  His love is unchanging.  What will change says the Lord is the ability to receive my love.  I want to cram some more of that ability inside you.  So I challenge you says the Lord, open your heart to me.  Open your heart to me and you will receive more of my love than you have experience before.  I dare you says the the Lord, come on, open your heart to me.  Give me your heart, give me whatever your obstacle is, I’ll take it.  I’ll remove it out of the way, because I love you as you are right now.  I love you 100% as you are right this moment.  I love you as you are, so be loved.  You are the beloved.  It is your job, says the Lord, to be loved outrageously.  It is why I chose you.  That is why I set my love upon you, that you would live as one that is outrageously loved.  That you would receive a radical love.  So radical, it will blow up all your paradigms of what you think love is.  I will love you outrageously all the days of your life because I don’t know how to be any different.  This is who I am and this is who I will always be.  This is the I am that I promised you.  I am He that loves you outrageously.  And you may love back with the love that I give you, you may love me outrageously with the outrageous love I bestow upon you.  And know this says the Lord, you can only love me as much as you love yourself.  So, my love comes to set you free from yourself.  To set you free from the smallness of your own thinking about yourself.  My love comes to set you free from rejection and shame and low self-esteem and despair and abuse because when I look at you, says the Lord I see something that I love.  I see someone I can love outrageously and I have so much to bestow upon you.  So much to give you, so many places to take you in my heart, but you can’t go there unless you allow me to love you.  And my love for you will break every barrier, bring every wall crashing down and know this says the Lord, my love damages fear.  My love hates fear.  My love will fight fear.  It will fight fear in you.  it will fight fear around you.  And, if you have fear says the Lord, know you have a treat in store because my perfect love casts out fear.  There is no fear where I am present.  Because my love casts out fear.  Beloved, you are my beloved, you are my beloved.  And in my love I want you to fee good about yourself.

  1. Lucianne Marie,
    What a lovely journey you are on. What a good word, rightly spoken.

    Learning to love myself has always been hard, but the journey of the last couple of years is starting to take hold. Thank you for repeating God’s words so that I can tuck them in my heart as treasures He is giving me to continue my journey!!!

    I am so proud of you and I am so glad that you are learning to be such a good listener and that you are a gifted writer.

    Love you with all of my heart.

    Mom
