Short and sweet

When things hurt,
when life hurts a lot, it's hard to turn my face to the Lord and believe that he loves me.

But he does.

He loves me even when I choose to be angry and resentful. He loves me despite the sin in my heart. He loves me when I look away from his gentle and gracious face and doubt him.

And even if I can't quite see or feel or believe that he loves me in this instance, I can be thankful because the truth is.....
he loves me.
