Hi Deja! I'm Sarah! I have trouble being confident that the Lord loves me, do you have any advice on this?
Hey Sarah!! I do have advice! I think the BEST thing to do is to read Bible verses about God’s love for you. Just keep reading them over and over and meditate on them whenever you can and I think that your heart will eventually truly accept God’s great and precious love for you!
Here are some verses about how much God loves and adores you!
Zephaniah 3:17 “The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
John 15:9-17 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you willabide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.”
Romans 8:37-39 “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
1 John 3:1 “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”
1 John 4:7-8 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
1 John 4:9-11 “In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
I hope this helps!! I want you to know that God literally loves you SO much. Don’t reject His love for you, but accept it! He loves you as you are. You don’t have to change for Him to love you. Although He wants to change your heart and renew your mind so that you can be who you were truly created to be, the best you, He loves you as you are right now! You’re in God’s heart because He thinks you’re special and beautiful and wonderful. Much love and God Bless you Sarah!!
Headcannon that at least some of Yuuri’s fans have always found his awkwardness endearing
“It was so cute, I walked up an said he was my fave and he immediately looked over his shoulder like I couldn’t be talking to him, then pointed to himself like, ‘Me?’” #ProtectKatsukiYuuri
“As he skated by during warmups, I held up my sign and yelled as loud as I could, ‘I LOVE YOU YUURI!!!’ and GUYS I SCARED HIM HE ALMOST FELL because of me i felt bad but it was also the most adorable thing i’ve ever seen (̂ ˃̥̥̥ ˑ̫ ˂̥̥̥ )̂ “
“Our awkward skating son”
“He’s like ten years older than you?”
“Katsuki Yuuri is too precious for this world”
“I want to bundle him in blankets and keep him safe forever”
@ v-nikiforov “Please tell us you bundle our precious boy up and protect him”

THIS GAME. AGH. I have so much love for Night in the Woods!! I was watching @therealjacksepticeye play and fell in love instantly. The interaction between Mae and her parents in the last episode made me really emotional and miss mine (I ended up calling them afterwards haha). Gregg and Angus are absolutely precious. I adore them, so I had to doodle something real quick
