GOD Loves You So Much

I love you so much...

That's what I said to my doggie this morning. It wouldn't have mattered what I said as long as I was paying attention to him. Immediately...almost before the last word was out of my mouth...this thought came to mind.

God loved you so much that He sent His only Son to die for you! 

I just thought...Wow! How do I let myself get so far away sometimes? Even better...where do I go?! I have asked myself that many times and I still don't really have an answer. All I can say is that I am so thankful He brings these thoughts to my mind so that I can reflect on them. I am someone that listens to what is said to me...thinks on it for a while...then reacts. I'm thinking that because I'm slightly stubborn and hard-headed, LOL, it can take a while for good things to really sink in and take hold. 

All kidding aside there is one thing I have to say...

I may still be struggling with issues in my life but giving up and giving in is the wrong solution. Accepting JESUS into my life...and everything He has done for me the best thing that has ever happened to me! I struggle...mess up...get lost...think about giving up...and fail big time...but HE is always there waiting for me to come back. When I do I am accepted as if I hadn't strayed. Why?....

Because...GOD loved me so much He sent His One and Only Son to die on the cross for me...and you! 

Think about that.

Your honesty is always so refreshing, Chelle. So often what you share is something that I have felt or thought. Thanks for putting those feelings and thoughts into words. Have a blessed weekend!

Hi Chelle - I think its the devil that tries to tell us that we messed up so God won't love us. but God says, nothing - NOTHING - will separate us from His love. Great post
God bless

I agree with the girls, great post! It IS so awesome to know that when we mess up, HE still loves and and always will. Nothing can separate from the love of God, NOTHING!
You've got me smiling now! :)

Your words have me feeling pretty loved right now! :) It's so reassuring to know that even when we stumble and fall He is there to pick us up and love us like no other Father can!

Labor Day blessings!

Hi Chelle,
I often think that when we finally see Jesus face to face we are going to realize just how much He loves us and how often He has been telling us so, it was that we just never listened.
Sometimes I too become overwhelmed by His love and it is like, WOW, He died for me! Amazing.

I am sharing in your awe.
