God’s love for you is perfect, unconditional, and everlasting.
No matter what you’ve done. No matter where you’ve been. No matter how you feel.
You need to remember . . . you are loved.
He loves you and me – not because of what we believe, what we say, or what we do. He loves us simply because He is God and He chooses to love us.
How do we know? Well, just like the children’s song says, “because the Bible tells me so.”
