"Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure."
Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT)
Long before the creation of the world, God knew you, He loved you, and He chose you. Long before you were ever conceived in your mother's womb, the Lord loved you and chose you as His own. He already knew about the mistakes you'd make, yet He loved you. He already knew about the struggles you'd have, yet He still chose you. He already knew you'd slip up and fall down, yet it still gave Him great pleasure to love you and have you as His child.
I don't know who this is for, but know that God's love for you is not contingent upon how good you are, how pretty you are, how educated you are, how wealthy you are, or any other quality you may or may not possess...it is an unconditional, uncircumstantial, untainted, perfect love. There's nothing you can do to gain it, and there's nothing you can do to lose it, because nothing can separate you from His love. God loves you; in all of your imperfection, He chose you. Why? Simply because that's what He wanted to do.
Through the blood of His son Jesus Christ, He sees you faultless...a perfect reflection of Himself. He loves you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3).
In your pain...God loves you.
In your shame...God loves you.
In your insecurities...God loves you.
In your guilt...God loves you.
In your mistakes...God loves you.
In your brokenness...God loves you.
Embrace the Father's love for you. Enjoy the song posted below...
~May you live in His love.~
