{"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me." ~Psalm 139:9-10}

How often have you thought to yourself, "If they really knew me, they wouldn't love me"? In our moments of insecurities, shame, and doubt, it's hard to believe that unconditional love actually exists. However, instead of hiding behind the eyes of rejection, I want to challenge you to walk in the face of salvation. 

You have a Savior who died so that He could know you. If that's not unconditional love, then it's time to reevaluate. While it may be true that genuine love is hard to find in human relationships, we serve a God who knows us in all our ways {every move we make, every thought we have, every word we say}, yet loves us unconditionally despite our flaws. This love is no ordinary or temporary love, either; it's rich, full, forgiving, and eternal. It's beautiful in all of its ways because God is beautiful in all of His ways. The guilt and shame you feel about that "thing" you shouldn't have done is God's way of revealing "any offensive way" in you so that He can "lead you in the way everlasting," (Psalm 139:24). He is not an angry God who spits fire on every mistake you make. He's a God who desires the best for you, and He is with you and for you to make sure that happens- even if that includes revealing your "offensive ways" before you. Ladies, He is God and He is GOOD. 

Take the hand of your all-knowing, all-caring, all-loving Father- who desires only the best for you- and let Him lead you Home.
