You Are Loved

You are loved.

Not because you get straight A’s or don’t get straight A’s in school.

You are loved.

Not because of your athletic abilities or lack thereof.

You are loved.

Not because of the good things you have done, or because of your past.

You are loved because you are His.

When you accept Jesus Christ as Savior of Your life and invite Him into your heart, you are His. And He loves you just as you are, the way He made you. Never forget that.

You are His masterpiece, and when He looks at you, He sees perfection. He sees a princess [or prince]. I know this can be hard to understand and even harder to really let seep into your soul, but just rest in the truth right now. You are loved, not because of what you have done, but because of whose you are. You are His.
