At this moment, listen to my words of encouragement, I am your God whose love never gives up on you. Don’t judge yourself too harshly. I watch you struggle again and again to win against the sin you perceive in your life. I know it weighs on your heart and the disappointment you feel when you cannot change. The endless promises you make to do better only burden you down with further guilt. My word to you is to stop beating yourself up; otherwise, you will suffer continual conflict in your soul. (We are all Broken, and That’s Alright)
Let me emphasize it again. I will never give up on you, so get rid of the thoughts that I can’t stand you, and that there is no hope for you. Hear me when I say I created you with my own hands, and I love everything about you. You may feel my love is limited because your love has limits. However, my love is limitless, for I am eternal love and have no need to be loved in return. You are my child, and no matter how often you feel like you fail, I will never turn my back on you.
I conceived you for fellowship and communion with me, so I am never surprised when you fall. I know your thoughts and hear every word you speak, and when your actions fail, recognize my heart reaches out with unwavering forgiveness and love.
It would be best if you never forgot how beautiful you are in my eyes. You are created in my image and likeness, so you are the unimaginable expression of my love. No longer condemn and always judge yourself. Let my words touch the deepest recesses of your soul and, in your mind, remove any doubt that I love you no matter how many times you fail. Don’t judge yourself too harshly. All I ever wanted from you is your heart and to trust me with your life.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deut. 31:8 NIV
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. 8:38-39 NIV
