The number one thing on my mind lately is nothing less than
How? How can the most powerful Being ever to exist, love me? I don't think anyone is capable of comprehending something so
He knows every single detail of my life. All my mistakes, all my half-hearted attempts, all my unloving thoughts. When I think of pieces of my past I literally feel sick, yet the God of the universe loves me all the same.
I think I'm pretty much the definition of undeserving when it comes to God's love.
to love me anyways.
Sometimes I feel trapped in past mistakes. I know I have the ability move forward, but some days I don't feel like I deserve to. But you know what? I need to anyways.
You are forgiven and you are loved more than you will ever know. You might not deserve it, but I'm God and loving people is what I do. Your past will always be there, but it doesn't have to define you. There will always be things about the present you don't like as well, but the present doesn't have to define you either. Let ME define you. Circumstances are only circumstances. I am not a circumstance, I am a constant. Abide in me, trust in me, live for me.
Your Savior, Creator, and Father
Insert your name where mine is. I can guarantee, this applies to you too.
Goal for this week: live in God's mercy and redemption and do NOT let my past hold me down!
