Jesus Loves You!

We hear this all the time: Jesus loves you!  It’s even a song. It’s an oft-heard phrase but have you ever really dissected that a bit and thought about how precious that really is? Sometimes we feel so small…we’re just one in a sea of billions of people on Earth. And there have been billions of people here before us and God loved them all. So what’s so special about me??  Let me tell you.

There may be billions of people but there’s none just like you or me or the guy down the street. We’re all uniquely different with our own oddities, quirks, features, characteristics, wants, needs, dreams. We often feel like the speck in “Horton Hears a Who.” Sometimes we feel so small,as if we’re a speck on the speck. But I’m telling you, He cares about everything you care about, simply because you care about it. If it’s important to you, it’s important to Him. If it hurts you, it hurts Him. He carries our burdens…willingly!

If you think of all the grains of sand on a beach, they’re too numerous to count. You couldn’t pick out a specific grain of sand. They all look the same! We’re those grains of sand–there are so many of us.  Except God can reach down and pluck out a “grain” and tell you all about that “grain”, what it looks like, feels like, what it cares about, where it’s been, where it’s going.  He can pick each one of us out of a crowd and knows everything about us at any time…because He loves us. I just wanted you to know.

    Luke 12:7 goes perfectly with your post, “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” It’s awesome that God knows the number of hairs on our head. It makes me feel so special that God knows everything about me – even more than I know myself!

      Hey, Nifty Betty! I somehow missed this comment and I’m so sorry. I want to make sure I reply to everyone who takes the time to read and comment! It really is amazing, isn’t it, to know that God loves us and KNOWS us that intimately?!

    I grew up Catholic but rarely attend church anymore. I still believe in God and Jesus though. This is such a good reminder. I need to remember to tell myself this daily. I bet it would help calm me down when my worries are high.

      Hi Brandy! It helps me to know this and I’m a worrier too, though I’m trying very intentionally to recover from that. I like the name of your page so I’m going over to check it out right now. Thanks for reading and commenting! ~Melanie
