“But you, the Lord God, are kind and merciful. You don’t easily get angry, and your love can always be trusted.”
Psalms 86:15 CEV
There are many times when those around us, hurt us. Too often we can be faced with brutal moments of betrayal and unkind words that break our hearts, and ultimately cause us to have some trust issues. I’ve been hurt before, as I’m sure you have. The opposite is true as well, that we have more than likely hurt others.
A reminder I can carry with me in those moments is the above scripture that God’s love can be trusted. He is for you, and never against you. It can be frightening to be vulnerable, even with God, and to express our need for Him and His love. This reluctance may be because of an unhealed wound that we have suffered at the hands of others. Regardless, His love is a safe place where we can find rest, restoration, and compassion.
Even if those closest to you walk away from you, God never will. His love for you is genuinely unconditional, and never-ending. You are loved and cherished and always will be.
One thing I often tell my daughters is that there will never be a day in their lives that they will not be loved, and the same applies to you. I know it can be difficult to believe that, especially when we are hurting and suffering, but God will always love you.
You are loved beyond measure.
