THE HEALING KIND OF LOVE

To be loved and accepted as you are and not judged is the kind

of love we all look for and want—the healing kind of love that

doesn’t hurt and is constant and unconditional—not earned but

given freely—seeing the need in us, not our faults—the love

that covers us and doesn’t uncover.

In this world a lot of us have been deeply hurt by love, but

there is a love that truly heals and that is God’s love.

Sometimes we’ve been hurt so many times that we’re afraid of

love because we don’t want to be hurt anymore, so we build up

walls around us and close ourselves up to love. We think by

doing this we are protecting ourselves and it's ok. But,

eventually, the walls become a trap and hurtful to us, keeping

us stagnant and eventually hurting us emotionally and

spiritually and, in may cases, physically also.

There is a healing kind of love that melts down the walls,

soothes the wounds of a broken heart and can put back the

pieces of a life that has been broken --a love we’ve never

known before—Someone who sees and feels the pain in our life

and who was with us through it all, even though we may not have

known it; that Someone is God, who gave us life and loves us

unconditionally. He is a constant kind of love we can trust in.

His love is not dependent on what we do or don’t do. His love

just is, because we are.

This love soothed the wounds of my broken heart and life and

healed my pain, giving me hope and my life meaning. He took

away my guilt and shame by touching this broken life and

putting it back together again, only better than it was before.

Loving me and accepting me as I am, He’s given me a reason to

live and love again. His healing kind of love set me free, and

He wants to do the same for each one of us..
