I lay my head down on my pillow. Weary after another long day. Discouraged because I have failed in so many ways again this day. “How can you still love me?“ I question my Creator. “I am so unworthy!“ My children snuggle close to me in their sleep. I think of how hard they were to deal with today. Disobedient at every turn. Ignoring my words. Choosing to do wrong. Making me so sad.
At that moment God speaks to me. This is how I still love you…as you still love your children. We disobey. We don’t listen. We chose to do wrong. We make God sad. Yet He still wants to draw us close to Him. To hold us in His arms and tell us we are forgiven. We are loved. More immensely than we can ever imagine.
