God still loves me. No matter what I do or don’t do, He still loves me.
God so loved the world. He took the first step. He didn’t wait for me to come to Him. He came to me. While I was still a sinner. He came to me first. He came to me when I had nothing. He came to me when I was wrong and ugly and messy.
God came to me first then, and He comes to me now.
He loved me then, and He loves me now. He loved me when I didn’t know any better, and He loves me now when He’s revealed Himself to me and given me ears to hear, yet I stumble and fall and get stubborn and have doubts.
God still loves me whether I get it right or whether I get it wrong.
God still loves me. Whether or not I have a quiet time, whether or not I lose my patience with my family, whether or not I get the budget right, whether or not I help that person who asks for it, God still loves me.
But, oh how I want to get it right. How I want to walk in His ways. How I want to honor Him.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Luke 10:27).
Love God. It’s not doing all the things I hear. Love my God. It’s that simple.
We love, because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). Love God.
God still loves me no matter what. He loved me first. He loves me now. And I love Him. That blesses Him. That honors Him.
