Everlasting Love

I shouted “Why!”
He assured “Trust Me.”
I retorted “Why me?”
He replied “Because you’re my beloved.”
I cried “It’s too painful, I’m so alone! I can’t make it!”
He reminded gently “I’ve borne every rejection, betrayal, heartbreak, injustice, I understand.”

Overtaken by a rush of emotions as I recall His sacrifice at Calvary, I whispered between tears “I love you, I love you, I love you Jesus!”
He replied, touching my head “I love you too, which was why I had to die on the cross – for you. I have loved you with an everlasting Love.

a Love that is timeless, it knows no beginning or ending.
a Love that is eternal, it is perpetual, indefinite, infinite.
a Love that is constant, it is invariable, imperishable, indestructible.

And I will never leave you or forsake you.

Trust Me.”

Jeremiah 31:3 – The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love;  I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
