He Said It First

I'm almost sure we are all familiar with that awkward phase in the relationship when you're head over hills for someone and you just want to blurt out, "I love you." 
You plan out the perfect moment to pour out your heart. You daydream about what their response will be, and then doubt and fear creeps up. What if they don't respond the way you want them too? What if pouring out your heart makes things even more awkward? So then you come up with the perfect solution -- Just wait until they say it first. Then you play the waiting game trying desperately to not utter the words until the PERFECT moment.

Well, with Christ it doesn't quite work that way. We don't have to wait for the awkward moment to past. We don't have to play the waiting game. We don't have to hope He says it first, because He already has. 

1 John 4:19: We love because God first loved us.

God loved you before you even knew Him.
Even when your life didn't align with the things of God -- He loved you.
Even when we neglect Him and stray away from Him -- He loves us.
Even now when you're debating giving your all to Him -- He loves you.

Pour out to Him. Tell Him you love Him! His response will be greater than you can imagine. 

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
