“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Ps. 139:14

 You are so valuable, beautiful, significant and unique.  You are created and highly loved, by God.  You’re not here by chance.  Life is a gift from God and He has a plan for your life.

 This world’s attitude is a lot of consumption and “use and throw away”.  In the past, it was more common to care for, repair and maintain things.  Now you throw away and buy new.  Now it is single-use items that apply.  The new attitude has become – Use, exploit and throw away.

 Maybe you have been abused, in different ways.  Maybe you have abused others, in different ways.  This erodes both oneself and others, yes, entire societies.

 There is a lot of talk about love, but many people mean lust, the opposite of love.  Lust seeks its own. 

 But “…(love) seeks not its own… ” 1 Cor. 13:5

 God is love, love that gives.  Today you can be reconciled to God by believing in Jesus.  Then the love of God is poured out in your heart.  He heals you on the inside.  Together with Jesus, you get help to love God, others and yourself.

“We love Him (God) because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19

 Receive God’s love today by believing in Jesus.  You then become a child of God and God becomes your heavenly Father.  He never exploits people, He loves, but we need to respond.

“Yet to all who received Him (Jesus), He gave the power to become sons of God, to those who believed in His name,” John 1:12

 You can respond now by believing in Jesus.  Tell Jesus that you are now opening your heart to Him.  He will forgive, repair, restore and heal you.

 God bless you.
