hands forming a heart around the sun

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” – 1 John 4:16

God’s love is unfailing and never changing. He is always with us through the good times and the bad. He is always there whenever you need him, and he will always love you, no matter what.

When We Are Lonely

Whenever you feel alone and you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, know that God is still there. When you feel like you have to live life by yourself and feel like you have to go through hard times alone, God is with you and he will continue to love you, especially when you are lonely. He is always with you and with him in your life, you are never alone.

“And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” - Matthew 28:20

When We Feel Unloved

We all have moments in our life where we do not feel very loved or feel unworthy of love. This can come from rejection or heartbreak. We feel like we may not find someone who will love us or are constantly looking for love in the wrong places. God’s love is way greater than the love that anybody else on earth could give us. He loves us so much that he died for us and he will continue to love us for the rest of our lives and into eternity.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30

When We Are Upset

Being upset and frustrated when things go wrong is the natural human reaction. We can get upset at small things and big things. When we are going through hard times and sad times, God is always there. He is always faithful. When we are upset, we can turn to him for comfort and know that everything is going to be okay, because he has a plan and he will see it through.

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:7

When We Are Angry

There may be situations in life where we get angry. Life does not always go the way that we plan it to. Gods plans are different than our own. He knows what is best for our life and we need to trust him with that. His plan is the best plan and he will bring us love and good things. We need to be open to new ideas and changes in our life to receive the good things that he has planned.

“How long, Lord, will you look on? Rescue me from their ravages, my precious life from these lions. I will give you thanks in the great assembly; among the throngs I will praise you.” – Psalm 35:17-18

He Will Always Love Us

No matter what, God will always love us. No matter how many times we mess up, sin or fall away from him, his love is never ending and unfailing. He will continue to love us unconditionally through thick and thin, all the days of our life.

“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” – 1 John 4:8

Nothing You Can Do Can Stop Him From Loving You

We are all sinners; we sin on a daily basis. We are all human and we are imperfect. We make mistakes. There is no mistake too big that will make him stop loving us. He will love us no matter what and will always forgive us for our mistakes.

“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” – Jeremiah 31:3
