Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - August 17

God Loves Even Me!

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5, nkjv

In the midst of our suffering, it can often be difficult to glimpse the glory to come. Suffering is so immediate and can seem so permanent that we can easily lose sight of the big picture. The pain can be so crushing and our hearts can be so broken that we just don’t understand why! Why me? Whenever that question tends to fill my mind, I hear Him whisper to my heart, “Anne, why not you? Just trust Me! Trust Me to be with you. Trust Me to bring you through. Trust Me to be enough for you. Trust Me—because I love you!”

When I don’t understand why, I trust Him because . . . God loves even me!

Are you hurt because you’ve thought that if God truly loved you, you would be exempt from pain and problems and pressure? Lay your hurts at His nail-pierced feet—and just trust Him because He loves even you!
