Whatever you've done, wherever you've been, whatever you will do, God loves you. He always has and you can't change that. Sometimes that little thing seems like everything and it seems like we just can't get away from it and we have no idea what to do with our shame so we run away and we hide under the covers and we keep hiding. we don't know where to go or what to do. but in Romans 8 it says that there's nothing we can ever do to separate us from the love of God in Jesus. Nothing. so may you stop hiding under the covers, may you let God pull the covers back, may you embrace Him, may your whole life become a response to the truth that you have always been loved, you are loved, and you always will be loved. and may you know, may you know deep in your soul that there's nothing you could ever do to make Him love you any less. there's nothing you could ever do to make God love you less. Nothing.
