As we come to the end of the year, many of us are taking a look at the things we have accomplished, relationships past and present, the good times, the bad times, the highs, and the lows. And, while reflecting, we bring out what I like to call our life calculators, determining in one moment how successful we have been all year. We are needlessly hard on ourselves, judging ourselves for no reason.
Honestly, sometimes, no matter what we do, life just happens! Some of it will be good and some of it will be challenging. Sometimes we will come out ahead and sometimes we will fall behind. In the end, with the Lord’s help we endure.
Whatever is happening in our life, no matter how we are feeling at any moment, when we need a pick-me-up, we need to call upon the Lord. He will be there for us. There is no greater feeling than the love that comes from our Father. And, when we feel lonely, when we feel unloved, and when we call upon the Lord, He will meet us wherever we are, wrapping His majestic arms around us, showing us His mighty and never ending love.
This year, as you contemplate how much you matter in this world; remember you are loved to no end.
With the Lord, there is always hope for a future filled with love.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:37-39
