Does God Still Love Me?

Do you ever feel this way? Exhausted, like you've been doing everything wrong (see how the man has a nail in one hand and a mallet in the other... where you think he was going to put that nail?), knees about to buckle under the weight of your sins, eyes stinging so much from lack of sleep that you can't keep them open any longer? Ever want to just give up?
I have felt this way. I felt this way yesterday.
I'd invite you to take a look at who is behind the exhausted man. See how he holds him so tenderly?
The very one we are sinning against.
The Lifter of our Heads.
The Healer of our Broken Hearts.
The One who Forgives.
The One who Loves.
The One who will never leave us or forsake us.
No matter what I have matter what you have done, my friend, Jesus stands there waiting to take you into his loving arms and comfort you if you will just ask him. Whatever you think you've done...whatever your sin, whatever you've done or said or haven't done or haven't said, big or small or inbetween... God still loves you.
John 3:16 For God so loved THE WORLD that He gave His only and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life."
YOU are a "whoever". YOU are part of the world that He gave His son for.
No matter what, God loves you.
