The internet can be a messy battleground of venom-laced words, traumatic images and Bible verses wielded as weapons to wound …
… and if you find yourself overwhelmed by it all, or maybe even worse — numb to it all — it’s okay to step back and breathe and remember you are loved by God.
You aren’t enslaved to a never-ending negative news cycle.
You are a free person because of this Good News: Jesus loves every last one of us.
If you’ve been triggered, traumatized and shamed because of your second cousin’s ex-girlfriend’s grandmother’s post, wondering if God could ever love a person like you, here’s the sign you’ve been looking for:
JESUS LOVES YOU.
The essence of his nature is to love, not condemn. His posture toward you is kind, not accusatory.
He loves you deeper than ocean trenches and higher than galaxies a billion lightyears away.
And maybe, just maybe, there’s a wounded heart out there who needs to be told she matters even though the internet is outraged.
A broken heart who needs to know God is not disappointed in her.
A shamed heart who needs to be reminded there’s a God who calls her worthy.
Maybe you need to know this simple truth that keeps the world spinning: God is enthralled with you and he’s really, really proud to be your dad.
