Unconditional love

This prayer hit me just as I was going off to sleep a couple of nights ago, so I had to put the light back on, and write it down immediately, before it disappeared from my memory! 

Unconditional love

You have searched me, LORD, and you know me (Psalm 139:1; NIV).

…you perceive my thoughts from afar (Psalm 139:2; NIV).

Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely (Psalm 139:4; NIV).

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there (Psalm 139:7-8; NIV). 

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:10; NIV).

There is nothing in my past, present or future,
Nothing in my heart, soul, body or mind,
That I would ever want to hide from you –
Even if it were possible.

You know all about me,
Yet you love me unconditionally,
So I can always tell you anything, 
And everything,
Without fear.

Thank you, Lord, 
For your matchless love,
Care and understanding.
