God is blessing me to write this because someone needs to know this one thing. One thing that you never need to worry about is whether God loves you. He loved you so much that he gave his only begotten Son for you. John 3: 16-17 states, " For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
One saint told me that it does not rain naturally every day of the year. This saying can also apply to you spiritually as well. If you are not where you want to be today, just remember tomorrow, if the Lord wills, is another day. That new day can be filled with more happiness and more opportunities for success. Life is made up of hills and valleys. Everyday is not the same. Start looking for happiness in small things like the beauty of a sunny day, the laughter of a family member, or the memories of good times from the past. God is an awesome God. Ephesians 3:20 says, "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us." Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
There is a song that says, I see you in the future and you look better than you do right now. Believe that things will get better. Put your future in God?s hands. Just say God I don?t know all that you have for me but I trust you. I know that whatever happens to me, it will work out for my good. Hebrew 4:15 states, " For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin." People of God be encouraged today knowing that God does and always will love you.
