God has changed me.
I just realized that I don’t say, “I feel loved,” all the time anymore. I used to say that all the time in high school. The Lord literally changed my heart. I don’t say that anymore because I know I am loved. The Father loves me perfectly, and he changed my heart in way that made me open to that. I was searching for it in the people around me before, but I refocused who I decided to recieve that love from first and foremost. I recieve it from the Lord. I depend on the Lord’s love for me rather than some guy or some friend that I may have.
Love is one of the most beautiful feelings we have for one another as people, and we all need it. The Lord is the only entity that provides the kind of love that helps us see beauty in ourselves, others, and most importantly the Lord himself. When He loves us and we accept that, He fills us with His Spirit. It’s absolutely amazing.
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, you may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
- Ephesians 3:17-19
