God is Love and God Loves You

                               "In the beginning, 
      God created the heavens and the earth."
                           Genesis 1:1

      Before that, there was NOTHING except God
                   and His Incredible Love.

    In 6 days, God created the heavens and the earth 
                 and everything on the earth.  
          And on the 6th day God also created 
                        man and woman.  
   God said "Let us make mankind in our image, 
             in our likeness."  Genesis 1:26
             God saw all that He had made, 
                    and it was very good.
                          Genesis 1:31

God had so much love, 
that He created all that exists.
And He created us.
God knows all things.
Before time began, He knew all about us.
He knew our faults and our talents.
He knew ahead of time all we would do
both good and bad.
He created us anyhow.
And He loves us without limit.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16

    God knew we would make so many mistakes 
                and commit so many sins.

                  He loves us so much and 

    so badly wants us to spend eternity with Him
                that He can be called 
          the God of our second chances.

The rainbow represents mankind's second chance after God destroyed the world with the great flood.

          The cross where Jesus took on all our sins                               and died for us 

                     and the empty tomb 
              where Jesus rose from the dead 
               represent our second chance 
            to spend eternity with our Father 
           who is love and who loves us dearly.

        Jesus reaches out His arms and asks
         "Will you accept my limitless love?"

            We love because he first loved us. 
                     1 John 4:19

         When life becomes extremely difficult, 
                when you make mistakes
              and may question your worth 
            (as I have done so many times)
            when you wonder why bother:
              Remember that God is love
                   and He loves YOU!

          (Know God will ALWAYS help you 
             through all those hard times)

I would love to hear from you either 
    on the comment section of this blog post
    or through my email.
I usually post every other Saturday.
The next post should be on September 22, 2018.             
        As you may already know, I love sunsets.
       They represent God's promise for tomorrow
     and for a magnificent eternity to look forward to.


  1. How great is the LOVE of God! We are so privileged to be loved by Him, inspite of our sins against Him and others! Thanks for the post, Debbie. I'ts a good reminder for us of God's unfailing love!

  2. We have a very loving Father who loves us regardless of our behavior. He nudges and encourages and sometimes even pushes us where He wants us. The results are so amazing when we just cooperate.
    Thanks for reading my post and for your kind words Jean.
