How amazing that an image tattooed on a body can be translated into sound! The idea is to wear on your skin a snippet of your favorite music or a recorded message from a loved one. With an app one can read it and play it anytime by scanning that unique sound wave image. A young woman recently had her dead grandmother’s last voice message tattooed on her chest. She will forever have her grandmother’s voice over her heart! How sweet to be able to access that message of love anytime and anywhere.
Today’s verse encourages the believer to keep one’s self in God’s love. His love does not change but our perceptions sure can! When He brings us into eternal life there will never again be the smallest whisper of doubt that He loves us. But today, rather than needing a voice tattoo, we can hear and be reassured of His love through His Word. Psalm 143:8 says that the morning brings us “word of Your unfailing love.” But not only then. He reassures our hearts all day long!
Surprisingly, it is not in the difficult times that I doubt His love. I am most prone to forget or question His love when I am not in His Word, actively listening. God’s Word is His love letter to me. It is full of His declarations of love. He uses that written word to reassure my heart and build me up. His voice is the one I need to be listening for and not all the other negative ones in my head.
Lord, remind me and keep me in Your love today!
