    Comment:

    These are 2 of my favorite prayers to pray for people that are running from Gods Love. I ask that the Holy Spirit to draw them to God so they may find all of the Love they ever dreamed about; truly belonging, and to never fear again of losing that love. A love steadfast and true. Jesus loved the children in His arms and lap. To which the Pharisees admonished him not to.

    The essence of is love is worship. Only unrepentant sin can threaten. If I sense a distancing, I turn back immediately, repent and I'm restored. We don't have to beg. God loves His children.

    Psalm 45:11
  • McGhee on Jeremiah 31:3
    It's awesome to know that God doesn't feel about us the way we sometimes feel about ourselves !!
