Since tomorrow ushers in the month of love....

"Think of the purest, most all-consuming love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount—that is the measure of God’s love for you.

God does not look on the outward appearance.I believe that He doesn’t care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely.

He loves us because He is filled with an infinite measure of holy, pure, and indescribable love. We are important to God not because of our résumé but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God’s love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked.

What this means is that, regardless of our current state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us."
The Love of God

Why do you think it is so hard to grasp this idea that we're loved regardless, simply because we ARE....when we're also taught that we should strive for goodness day in and day out and yet know we will fail? To already accept being a "failure" yet believe we will be loved despite is such a weird concept for me.

I love when my blog friends post things like truly helps me think about and question why I question things. It makes me think, and I am appreciative of that. :)
