“I have loved you with an everlasting love,” the Lord says. “I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3, NLT).
I feel the weight of your sin. I feel the pain of your battered soul over this thing in your life that separates you from my love. Why can't you just let it go? You are like a drowning person who, instead of reaching for the safety of my forgiveness, holds on to this thing in your life that will surely drown you. It holds you in bondage and keeps you from feeling my love and forgiveness. Do you love it more than you love me? There was a time you were close to me and needed me. Do you not need me in your life anymore? I have sent my servants into your life to draw you back to me. I have sent those who love you with my love and share my truth in love. They pray for you day and night and will never stop until I am able to reach you again. Please let this go before you become too calloused to my pleading voice. I love you with my everlasting love and draw you in unfailing kindness. Please listen. Please, I’m beseeching you. I'm reaching out to your heart. Return to me. Allow me to love you again. I’m waiting with open arms. In my embrace you will find peace. Come home. You will be free.
