There are times we don’t feel loved or lovable. It might be because we are discouraged or did something we’re not proud of. It might be the way we are treated by those who are ‘supposed’ to love us. Or it happens when life doesn’t go the way we’d planned or hoped for.
But when those moments come, I cling to what I know for sure. Jesus Loves me for sure and no matter what! “His love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me! His love is higher than the mountains that I face; stronger than the power of the grave; constant through trial and change...” (Jesus Culture; One Thing Remains)
Because He loves me, I have everything I need to live this life. It’s really that simple.
Father God, Your love has set me free in this life and the next. Your love is beyond human comprehension. It is not based on who I am, but Who You are. Your love isn’t withheld when I mess up or don’t deserve it. It is constant and never changes. (Corinthians 13:7) Even the angels marvel at how much You love human beings! (1 Peter 1:12) Your Love conquers ALL. Amen.
This is how God showed His love among us; He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in them.
