As we end these two weeks on the subject of love, it seems appropriate to pray a blessing of love over your precious spirit. May it wash over you and seep down into the deepest parts of you, reminding you that God loves you with an everlasting love. May it strengthen you, hold you, and give you a greater sense of Abba’s great love for you.
Sister, I bless your spirit to know the breadth and length and height and depth of Abba’s love for you. You are the apple of His eye. You are His beautiful, gifted, strong, brave daughter. In Him you are fully loved, fully seen, and fully accepted. He knows when you sit and when you rise. He knows your thoughts even from afar.
Sister, I bless you to anchor your heart in His great love for you. Let His grace carry you—sustain you. I bless your spirit to know that Abba is a mighty warrior who will save and protect you. He will faithfully hide you under the shadow of His wing. He will rejoice over you and with gladness and quiet you with His great love. I bless you to know the soothing songs of love He sings over you when your heart is hurting, broken, confused, or lost. May the familiar melody of His love always serenade you with the offer of His peace, His goodness, His wholeness, and His healing.
Sister, I bless you to hear His life giving words as He declares them over you.. Open your eyes and heart as He woos you with the dazzling array of colors that He splashes across the evening sky at sunset. Let Him delight your heart as He playfully flings the rich shades of pink across the canvas of the morning sky. Behold, the swirling colors of aqua blue and emerald green of His vast ocean. Take notice of His majestic mountains, rivers, and streams. All these wonders are grand displays of His love boldly inscribed in the four corners of the earth. I bless you to receive these love letters with openness and gratitude.
I bless your spirit to know the goodness of the Lord in the land of living. I bless you to take Abba’s loving hand and dance with joy knowing His love is greater than your past mistakes, your weaknesses, and your sins.
I bless your spirit to celebrate your uniqueness. Abba knew you before the foundation of the earth. He placed you inside your mother’s womb with great care and love. Heaven rejoiced and Abba danced at the moment of your birth. You were born with great purpose.
I bless your spirit with the capacity to receive His words of truth and may they settle in your heart grounding it deeply in the foundation of Abba’s unconditional eternal love.
