Life is a cadence. Perhaps yours is moving slower than you wish, or it’s frenetic pace is hard to keep up with. Or perhaps your heart beats fast to the cadence of something He’s called you to.
I thought about love this past week. I thought of all those who long for it, all those who are blessed by it, and all those who have yet to see that It walks beside you, sometimes carrying you…all along. When you don’t feel loved at Valentines, or the days after…what do you do?
Listen to His cadence.
His heart beats for you. YOU. The thought of YOU puts a smile on His face. The heartbeat of God is His children, those He created in His image. Can’t hear it for all the chaos around you? Yes, that is my day too, my friend. When everyone goes to bed and the house is a bit quieter, take a few minutes to sit and listen to Him. Allow Him to speak and encourage your heart. He is waiting to speak truth into your life.
I pray you know His love and how much He truly loves you. Maybe your week didn’t turn out as planned, or what you expected turned out as disappointment. This tune beat a cadence in my heart and soul this week and I am the better for it. My relationships, marriage, kids, and my understanding of God is better for it.
You are loved.
Beloved by Christy Nockels
Have you ever let yourself be loved by the one who made You. Have you ever told your soul to believe that His heart is on your side. You could even try to run away. But there’s nothing you can do. Just be loved. Be loved. He loves you. Just be loved. Be loved. He loves you. Have you ever let yourself be held by the one who holds this world. Have you ever told your soul to rejoice that His arms are open wide. You could even try to run away but He’d come running after you. Just be held. Be held. He holds you. Just be held. Be held. He holds you. We didn’t earn it, He just chose to give it. And it’s in our resting that we rise up singing. Rejoice! Again, I say Rejoice! Rejoice! Again, I say Rejoice! You are loved. Be loved. He loves you. You are loved. Be loved. He loves you.

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.” 1 John 3:1-2
