Sometimes we struggle to live loved, or at least I know I do. I struggle to remember I am loved. But, I’m here to remind you that YOU ARE LOVED. God will never stop loving you—you will forever be loved! 

Even in the hard times, remember you can turn to God and He is there with His arms wide open, ready to love you and take you as His own. Just know, you have so many people by your side who are loving you all throughout this journey of life. 

God loves you so much, and He wants the best for you. You’re such an amazing, talented, kind, beautiful, loved human being. I hope you realize today that you are so special and loved more than you could ever know. 

It’s so important to live loved and to realize you are not comparable to anyone else. No one will ever compare to you. In fact, from birth to death, your entire life, there is nobody in this world who could ever compare to you. You are so unique and loved. Don’t put yourself through the hardship of comparison.

God loves every one of us the exact same. I don’t want anyone to experience the pain of feeling like they’re not good enough and loved less than others. Because it’s not true! God loves you so much. There is no one He loves more than you! 

Let me tell you this: you will never understand the love God has for you. But, even though we don’t fully understand, God wants us to believe He loves us—and to have faith He is working good in our lives.

Living loved isn’t just saying “I am loved.” It is truly believing, deep down in your heart, you are so loved. Trust the Lord Jesus Christ with your life and praise His name for as long as you may live. He loves you so much! 

“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 (NIV)
