Constantly and Perfectly Loved

Psalm 34:5 - Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.

Ephesians 2:1-10 - And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience–among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by ntpature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ–by grace you have been saved–and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Hebrews 3:1-2 -  Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house.

Dear God, when I got stung by the wasp on Friday, I thought there was no way You loved me. That wasp, your creation, was mean to me. He was hateful to me. He hurt me. But in that, I see where wasps can be like people. People turn on each other other the stupidest things sometimes. Instead of exercising love and grace with each other and listening to them, they sting. But You love is every day, all the time. You live us when we feel fat and ugly or when we feel beautiful and smart. You live us even when we beat ourselves up. Perfect love. May there be more of it. Thank You, God, for loving me even when I feel unworthy of being loved. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
