He Loves Us Anyway

Have you ever felt unlovable?

I’ve been feeling a little like that this evening.

My heart is discouraged and I’m not quite sure why. I don’t have a specific reason…I just feel “down,” and I wonder why anyone would want to be around me.

As I was driving home from visiting my husband at work, however, a song came on K-Love radio that encouraged me. It’s called “You Love Me Anyway,” by the Sidewalk Prophets. Some of the words really hit home.

I am the thorn in Your crown
But You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anyway
I am the nail in Your wrist
But You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway

The amazing thing is that the focus is not on what we have done or how horrible it is. The focus is on what Christ has done and how wonderful it is! It is just so amazing that He loves us anyway, even after all of the ways we’ve (knowingly or unknowingly) fallen short of His best for us.

Be encouraged today. No matter what you’ve thought, felt, said, or done, God loves you (and me!) anyway. ❤
