God Loves YOU

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." Luke 12:6,7

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

God loves you. Crazy as it may sound sometimes when we're running around maybe being not-so-bright, God loves us. God loves each and every one of us, and you especially.

I heard something really cool this weekend, a cool analogy about how God loves us, and how he created us. As you go through a day, look at all the different people you see. Each and every one is unique and an individual. No two people are identical- just as no two snowflakes are identical. Not only is there uniqueness though, there is something special about Every. Single. Person. Before your parents parents were even glimmers in their parents eyes, God designed you. God created you in a special and unique way so that only you could be you. You are a masterpiece, a work of art. If you study a painter's paintings over time, no two paintings are ever identical, they are different and unique, and true masterpieces. So are you! You are a masterpiece in God's eye. Of course you are, He created you, and He is perfect, so our God would not create something imperfect. Think about that, if God does not create imperfect people, that means you are absolutely perfect-just the way God designed you to be.

God knew YOU before you were born.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5

Before you were even an idea, God designed you in just the right way that was pleasing to Him. God's paintbrush painted each and every stroke, every feature, every organ, every iota of DNA was put right where it was supposed to be. You personality is exactly the way God wants it to be so that you can be a unique person- you can be what YOU were meant to be.

God loves YOU! So much so, that he sent his only Son to die for you, so that you might spend eternity in Heaven with Him. God loves you so much that he also came to earth in the form of the Holy Spirit, a Spirit which is with us at all times.

"May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers; may he never leave us nor forsake us." 1 Kings 8:57

God loves You. He wanted you to know that today.

*smile* I think that sometimes we get so focused on looking at the plans and purposes and greater meanings that we forget the very basics. It is great to be reminded that no matter now much I may think I have fallen short, God still loves me.
