This life left me feeling as though I had no self-worth, no value and no one to turn to. But JESUS CHRIST made me realize that I have greater worth than gold and taught me to never again find fault to what He has so fearfully and wonderfully made. I am created to go far, to go & preach the Gospel to all nations. I am infinitely thankful because God redeemed me from the empty way of life. My past doesn't define my worth or value. I am defined by who I am now in Christ.
God doesn’t do anything because He -has- to do it. He forgives you because that’s what He wants to do. He loves you and draws you near because it pleases Him to do so. Do not be fooled, God is not reluctantly merciful.
Me: God, why do you keep on loving me no matter how many times I fail? I couldn't count the times that I've ran away from you and denied you. I always fail, but you keep on saying you love me. How could you love someone like me?
God: Because it's never about you, child. My love is not affected by your failures or achievements. I love you because I am a loving God and my love is unchanging. Nothing could ever separate you from my love- not even your biggest failures.
