It’s hard to believe that God could love me the way He does.
It’s hard to believe that no matter what I do, His love will never fail, never change, never end.
It’s hard to believe that He delights in me. That He just likes to look at me and watch me with love in His eyes, even when I am not doing a thing.
It’s hard to believe that even though I’ve broken His heart, betrayed His trust and questioned His ways…He still loves me!!!!
It’s hard to believe but it’s good to know that it’s true!
I want to be a woman who not only believes in God, but really believes Him. I want to really live like His love is true. As I promised in my devotion today at P31 and Crosswalk, I wanted to share a few of my favorite promises of His love from His Word. Will you join me in allowing these words to pour over our hearts and minds and let them become our truths.
