No Strings

I don’t love you for what you are or what you aren’t. I don’t love you for who you are. I don’t love you for how much you do or how well you do it. I don’t love you for how little you sin and mess up, or for how much you do the right thing. I simply love you—no strings attached. That truth may be hard to grasp, but once you do, everything in your life will take on new meaning and new depth, a new reality. You are complete because you are loved. You are free because you are loved. You are able to love others truly because you are loved completely and unconditionally.

I didn’t decide to love you based on your love for Me, or on what you do for Me. I loved you before there was any of that, before you took your first breath.

I love it when you tell Me you love Me and when you put that love into action by drawing close to Me in prayer. I love how you love Me and want to please Me, but even when that wanes or gets crowded out by the affairs of life, My love for you is unchanged.  My love for you never lessens, and I am never too busy for you.
