  1. Ummm…people need to get out of my head!! Had a little meltdown this weekend and then yesterday’s sermon was something along these lines and had me crying like a baby and then your words today are gentle reminders that God loves me because He made me. Not because I can(‘t) do something for Him.

    Beautiful beautiful words! 🙂

  2. So need to hear this today and every day. I have been really struggling this year with feeling loved by God. Or maybe I should say feeling worthy of His love. I still cannot get it through my head, heart, soul that no matter what I do He does love me…

  3. thank you so much for these words. i dont stop to think about God loving me, only if others love me or even like me. im going to save this lesson and read it often. i need to remind myself of God’s love for me on a daily basis. for the past 6 months i have been on an emotional rollercoaster, diving deeper and deeper into depression and there are days that i cant get out of that deep, dark pit. i have been feeling so lost and even desperate at times. i have been reading your blogs and it helps me see the light. i do not belong to a church. i work every sunday and have been unable to attend any services. that is why i started following certain blogs like these and at times they do help, so thank you!!! i will continue to follow the blogs and try my hardest to get out of this pit.

    • Dear Cassie,

      I know the pit. To well in fact. I’ve clutched at earth many times to have it crumble between my fingers as I tried to pull myself out. I’ve stood at the edge with head spinning and braced toes curled in dirt, begging not to fall in again. This “Simple Truth” has been anything BUT for me. When I penned it 2 months ago and submitted it here, I had no idea it would be posted on a day that once again, I would be visiting the edge.

      Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All I know…all I ever claim to know…is Christ and Him crucified–for me, for you! I am claiming that as enough. He loves me. He love you. In unfathomable ways I will never understand. But His love carries, caresses, cares and cures. This I know. This I continue to know. This I know again this morning as I awake to a new day and a new embrace of His love with each rise and fall of my breath. He is as close as that–your breath. Cling to Him as you call out from the pit. He is there. And I am learning from Ann V. that even the pit is grace. Hard, so hard…but still grace!

      You will be in my prayers all day today!
      May you walk today go into deep peace and joy!

  4. I’m printing this out and attaching it to my Valentine goodies for my junior high and high school girls! Thanks for sharing this beautiful truth – we all need these reminders!

  5. I continually need to refocus on this and to be reminded that my worth is not measured by my success or failure, by making the right or wrong choices in how I respond to situations.

    Thank you,

  6. I’ve been struggling with this the last couple of months. The last months have been a rollercoaster of emotions. And I tend to forget about it every time my husband tells me I mean nothing to him, I feel unloved and unworthy. Today I shall remember this in spite of everything!!!!! 😀
