It’s 6:38 p.m. on Monday night and you’re still at work. The pressure has you worn slick. You’ve logged more hours completing the current project than you’re actually paid for. You’re missing your daughter’s dance watch week and while it’s not her official performance, the mom guilt has settled in because the good moms are there.
You didn’t prepare a meal in the crockpot because the weekend was too busy attending the kids’ activities, and you didn’t go to the grocery store. Another trip to the Chick-Fil-A drive-through ignited your shame talk in full swing. The day feels long and your body is exhausted. You’re struggling to get caught up, and you quickly downplay thoughts of taking a hot bath – “stop, you don’t have time for that.” You crash into bed feeling weary knowing that when you open your eyes tomorrow morning, it starts all over again.
Throughout the hustle of life, your soul is crying out for comfort and love. You want and need that from your intimate relationships. Still, there’s a longing in your life for a deep connection with your Creator. There is no substitute for His expressions of love.
He presents His love letter every day through His creative nature designs. He creates a symphony of love letters when the bird’s chirp in the morning or the rain pats your rooftop during a thunderstorm. He writes love letters to your soul when he paints the sky with vivid pinks, oranges, and purples as the sun sets. His love letters shine when the sun warms your skin and the breeze blows your hair.
Even after all of that creativity, He still wrote a love letter through the inspired written word of God, The Bible.
Soaking in God’s love is more than simply reading the words on the pages of your Bible. It’s about intimately knowing Him as your father who cares, nurtures, and sustains your weary heart. God is your resting place, your reassurance, your knight in shining armor. When you feel the pressure is too heavy and the anxiety too much to simply breathe through, find ease in His written love letters to you.
We made it easy for you to find specific verses that highlight His faithful love for you. Meditate on these verses to renew your strength.
God Sacrificed His Son for You
His love is so deep that He gave His Son as a sacrifice to atone for our sins.
John 3:16: “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
God Loves You Even in Your Brokenness

God Longs to Help You

God Is Love
1 John 4:16: “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”
Nothing Can Separate You From God’s Love
Romans 8:35-39: “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, nor our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

Because God Loves You He Gives You the Gift of the Holy Spirit
Romans 5:3-5: “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.

God’s Love Drives Away Your Fear
1 John 4:18: “ Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.”
