Human relationships are often fragile. You've probably heard stories like these: A young woman got pregnant out of wedlock and she was disowned by her family. A boy insisted on becoming an artist and his parents cut ties with him. They stopped paying for his education. They felt disappointed because his chosen field was not among the ones they considered prestigious professions. A woman found out that her best friend had revealed a family secret she told her in confidence and she cut the offending lady off.
In each of these cases, the people who shut their hearts to others would likely have professed much love to them in the past. But when certain events took place, they considered them enough justification to withdraw their love. Human love constantly finds extenuating circumstances to shrivel and die. Not so the love of God!
The love of God for you is beyond comprehension (Ephesians 3:19). It does not depend on your record of goodness or your spotlessness. Even when you're covered in filth, it will find you and will hose you off if you let it.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
You see, God's love for you predates your birth. And it will never end.
"The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." - Jeremiah 31:3
So, no matter where you are now or what you might be going through, know that God still loves you very much and will always do. You mean so much to Him and He wants the best for you. To ensure that the enemy does not mess up your life, He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for you.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13
Stop despising yourself. Know that the Creator of the Universe loves you, not just for a bit of time but for all time. Embrace His love today and everyday by making Jesus your Lord and Saviour and living to glorify God. Never forget that He is always with you and for you. And that is because His love for you is not just for a season, it is forever. Halleluia!
