𝗦𝗖𝗥𝗜𝗣𝗧𝗨𝗥𝗘: John 3:16 (NIV)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
God loves you so much. He loves you enough to give His Son for you, to watch His Son die for you, to put the sins of the world on His back for you. That is incredible love.
Some days you may feel undeserving, blemished, bruised. But God doesn’t see you that way. He sees how you haven’t measured up, He sees the sin you carry and commit, but more importantly, He sees forgiveness. He sees you as His son or daughter. He sees you as His creation, and there is nothing you can do to remove that beautiful image from His mind.
On your darkest days, remember that He is with you. Remember that He loves you. Remember that He will never forsake you.
Remember that His Son died for you, and all you need to do is repent and believe in Jesus and the forgiveness of sins. Then be cleansed, renewed, replace dark with light, and start again in His name.

1 thought on “YOU ARE LOVED EVEN IN YOUR DARKEST DAYS”
The essence of this simple meditation today, dear sisters and brothers, is simply to repeat the words of Jesus, that is, “Do not be afraid.” I know it seems difficult; I know sometimes we fall prey to our weakness instead of trusting the love of God in our lives. But I can do nothing else but repeat what I know is true. Friends, I would not share this with you if I merely thought it to be true in my mind. No, much more, I know it to be true in my heart, in every fiber of my being, in my deepest soul. That is challenging, it is difficult, to simply surrender all into God s love. There is something about God’s power, about God s greatness, perhaps, which puts us in a position of being overwhelmed by awe. Hopefully, our spiritual lives can be an exercise in letting go of our fear, and allowing ourselves to rest in the peaceful, gentle, embrace of a God who loves us no matter who we are or even what we have done, right down to the worst sin we can think of in our lives. We have nothing of which to be afraid because as we also know from the Gospels, “God is love.” Let me repeat that, God is love. Friends let me repeat it a third time, God is love. And because that is absolutely true, it is then simply up to us to accept the truth of it, and to live, not in fear, but rather in the warmth of that eternal Love which forgives, which holds us close, which heals us, which lifts us up, which gives us every reason to smile and to know that no matter what burdens or problems we are experiencing in the present moment, we have hope, because we have a God who loves us and who saves us each and every day. Dear brothers and sisters, may your day be filled with God s love and may you not be afraid but rather take God s love with you wherever you go and share it freely with everyone with whom you meet.
