I am loved.
My mind cannot even comprehend the love of God. It is such a beautiful gift. The Creator of the world loves us and cares for us. While I know this truth, it is such a blessing to be able to feel this magnificent love in the depths of my soul.
When my soul feels weary, I like to think about the love and goodness of God. He gives me everything that I need when I need it. Even my trials are blessings. God is the only One who can take our heartaches and turn them into blessings. When we humble our hearts and go to Him, then He can show us how to overcome our hardships.
I remember when I used to cry over my scars. The pain in my heart was so great that I didn’t always feel loved by God. In my mind, I felt as if He had forsaken me. That is what the enemy wanted me to believe. Satan wanted me to think that God had turned His back on me and that He didn’t care what happened to me, but it was a lie.
God gave me a new perspective on it all. The day I realized I could have died, as the bands entangled me, changed my life. I could have died, but God spared me. I am alive to love and be loved. That day I stopped seeing my scars as a burden and started seeing them as a precious gift. They exemplify God’s love and mercy for me and my life.
We are His precious children.
1 John 3:1 (KJV)
3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
