There have been many times and periods in my life where I have been a hateful person. I don’t exactly know the reasons for making me such a hateful person, but I do know there have been seasons in my life where I have experienced deep, deep depression. I hated myself and I hated the world that I was living in. I didn’t know how to fix it, because I thought that God didn’t love me and could never love such a hateful person.
God always seems to remind me of the scripture, John 10:10, “The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but God has come to give us life and that we may live it more abundantly.” I do believe that is so true. We do have an enemy in our lives that wants to steal our joy, that wants to come to tell us the lie that we are unlovable. I believe that if we were sitting face to face with God, I see him with a smile on His face, looking straight into your eyes and He sees beauty, worth, and love. You see, God might not approve of the things that we do, but I do believe that we couldn’t do anything to make God love us any less…no matter what we do or experience.
God loves you. He knows that you are going to have deep, dark times in your lives. He doesn’t want to see us so sad and unhappy. I pray that you start feeling God’s love towards you, because HE DOES LOVE YOU! You are worthy of His love, and don’t believe for one more second that you aren’t and don’t believe for one more second that God doesn’t love you. You are the Apple of His Eye and you are a beautiful diamond in the rough.
My prayer today for you:
Lord God, we go through periods in our lives were we feel unhappy and unlovable When we feel this way, please remind us that You love us and you care for us. Help us to see worth in our lives. Lord, give us strength and help us get out of this rut that we are in. Lord, help us to recognize the enemy that comes to steal, kill and destroy and know how to put the enemy in his place! I say when any negative thoughts come to our minds, that we can successfully say, “Go straight to Hell” because that’s exactly where those thoughts come from!
Until next time…be encouraged!
