You Are Loved

As I sat and listened to her story, I was honored that she trusted me enough to share. Recently graduated from college, this young woman explained her journey through college, searching for love. She knew Jesus, but insecurities sent her searching for acceptance. Although she tried, she didn’t find it in her sorority, partying or boyfriends. Even the youth group she helped out in turned her away when they learned of some mistakes she had made.
     Her painful search for love pushed her into uncharted territories until she finally hit rock bottom and decided to end the search and completely surrender to Christ. Now she is serving in college ministry, sharing her story with so many students on the same journey to find true love and acceptance. Although her road was rough and painful, God is using her to share His unconditional love with so many that need to hear it.
No matter who you are, where you grew up, or what titles you’ve held, we are all the same. We all want to be loved.
     On our summer trip we visited the largest tree on earth! No photo could capture it’s grandeur. You can’t really even begin to grasp the massive trunk. That’s exactly like God’s love for us – totally unfathomable.

"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19
Know that You Are Loved!
