Hi guys My name is Amy, I gave my life fully to the Lord when I was 19. I had my battles of drug addiction and depression from a young age and even though I grew up in a home that loved the Lord, I did not know or understand the Love God had for me apart from what i “did” for Him. My Parents would always tell me they loved me and would remind me of the root of my name, which means beloved one of God. This word Beloved has always followed me and while I knew the Webster dictionary meaning of it (dearly adored and cherished one) I always struggle to fully grasp the free love of God. The truth is I’m not alone in this struggle. I think that human beings in general cannot fully understand a love that comes with no strings attached and is always consistent. The God of the universe, the same God who paints a sunset, formed the vast hills and formed the waves at the beach, has chosen to love us, not because of who we are, but because of who He is. Our role in this life is to BE-LOVED. This is why to me this is one of the best words in the Bible. I wanted this blog to be a place where my own encounters and battles of the Love of God in my life was also shared by many of its readers. My prayer is that this would be a place where you would feel loved, encouraged and not alone in this journey called Christianity.
