The dictionary defines unconditional as: not limited by any conditions, without conditions or limitations, not conditional or limited, absolute, unqualified
The definition has a ton of definitions for the word Love but lets go with this one; Love-a strong positive emotion of regard and affection;
The bible tells us in 1 john 4:8 & 4:16, that God is love. We will never experience a greater Love than the Love of God. He loved us so much that he sacrificed his only son for our sins ( Jonh 3:16).
Often we seek love outside of God and we end up disappointed, not because no one else iS capable of loving us but surely because no one else is capable of loving us as much as or more than God..
I find comfort in knowing that God loves me, I don't have to loose weight in order to receive his love I don't have to look a certain way, act a certain way or even posses certain things he loves me just because. I am even more comforted by the fact that theirs NOTHING that I could do to make him love me less. Unlike certain people in our lives God's love is truly unconditional, his love is perfect. John 15:-12 9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
I don't know about anyone else but the love of God is a love I DON'T WANT TO DO WITHOUT.

I often reminisce about the growth of our relationship over the yrs, we've shared a lot of love. I remember how I wanted nothing more than to love, honor,serve,and please HIM. I couldn't wait to spend time with HIM., I would get off from work go to the designated area I had assigned for my alone time with HIM, I would close the door and just be...... with HIM. I LOVED IT. I took great pleasure in it.I would spend all of my time with HIM if I could. I can remember being so anxious to be in HIS presence whether we were alone or whether I was surrounded by a group of people, talking about HIM, learning about HIM. I must admit, I have never felt so much love from another,His' is unconditional, I mean I could do and say anything and guess what he still loved me.HE was always there when I needed HIM. 2 1/2 yrs later and HE is still here with me. I haven't been the most faithful, honest, or trustworthy. Allow me to be honest, I have broken his heart quite a few times, and HE has never left my side. HIS LOVE IS PERFECT, the kind that does not fade no matter what I do or did. HE promised HE would never leave me and HE hasn't, HE promised to give me the desires of my heart and HE has. I LOVE HIM, and though I am not deserving HE loves me too. The way HE loves me makes me want to love HIM better/more, and I will. I have began to do so. Even when I slip up, HIS grace is sufficient, simply meaning every new day I am given is another chance to get it right. HE IS THE TRUTH. You may know HIM, HIS name is JESUS. If you don't know HIM, no worries HIS love is not just exclusive to me but to the world. Give HIM a try, A relationship with HIM is sure to change your life.
