Love Notes

Read Jeremiah 31:1-14


For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels won't, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God's love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are - high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean - nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us. Romans 8:38-39 (TLB)


Monica A. Andermann lives in New York. Early in their relationship, her husband gave her a card with a beautiful love note. After many years of marriage, Monica doesn't need a note to know how much he cares. It's evident in the things he does and the way he acts towards her every day. Even though they sometimes don't come to terms in certain situations or have a disagreement, Monica knows his love for her is steadfast and certain. She finds great comfort in this.

God's love for us is like the steady love Monica's husband shows her, only greater. At times, like when she lost her job of twenty years, when she faced grief, or when she heard the words of a frightening diagnosis, Monica shook her fist at God wondering where God's love had gone. Yet, it was there all along: in the kindness of a friend, in the skilled hands of a doctor, in the sunrise of a new day, in the blossoms that herald the promise of a new season. These are God's love notes to each of us. Do we recognize them?


Prayer: Gracious God, your love is at work in our lives at all times. May we be instruments of this love, sharing it at every chance through kind thoughts, words, and deeds, in Jesus' name. Amen.
