“If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning… Face it, friend. He is crazy about you! ”- Max Lucado.

How often do you think about the love God has for you? Well let me tell you how much God loves you. God says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving kindness” (Jeremiah 31H3). I know that when I love something itʼs usually for a reason. If I love a good book, itʼs because I enjoyed the storyline, or the characters. However, Godʼs love is unconditional. Nothing we do or say will make him love us less and he couldnʼt possibly love us more than he already does. God demonstrated his love for us through the most incredible gift. In Bethlehem over two thousand years ago, he gave us the most precious gift, his son, Jesus. Jesus walked this earth and showed us the love of God through the way he treated and cared for those he encountered. Not only this, but one Friday evening, Jesus died on the cross for our sins. No act of love will ever surpass Jesus dying on the cross and rising again three days later so that we may have a way to the Father.

So I encourage you girls, that whether things are going your way or not, trust in God because he has demonstrated how crazy he is about you and how much he loves you. He has a plan for you and through prayer and the reading of his word, he will guide you to where youʼre meant to be.
