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.

God never reveals our hearts to discourage us. Convicting us of sin is one of the most profound ways he demonstrates his love for us.

Psalm 45:11

  • 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.

Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator.
— Ecclesiastes 12:1 (via danicaehrielle)
