I don't know where you are in your life. Whether you've just started college or you just sent your baby to college. I don't know the struggles you go through and the temptations you fight off each day. But God put it on my heart to remind you of how much He loves you.
Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that God knew us before we were born, conceived, or even dreamed about. Even then, God knew us by name and had a plan woven just for us. God hand-created you, just as God created me. We are unique and perfect in God's own image.
God not only made you, but God rejoices over you! God smiles when you smile and laughs when you laugh. God wants nothing more than for you to rest in Love and peace because there is nothing more sweet than that. (Zephaniah 3:17).
God loves the world, so much, including you, that God sent Jesus, the only begotten Son to die in a most excruciating, terrible way for your sins. John 3:16 is one of the most popular quotes from the New Testament because it a testament to God's love for all us, regardless of how intimately we know God.
God chose you and calls you beloved (2 Thessalonians 2:13). The Lord is faithful and will guard you. We can have confidence in our God because of how much God loves us.
God calls you many things throughout the Bible. Beloved, Child of God, Daughter, Son, friend, and saint. God describes you as holy, new, saved, redeemed, beloved, chosen, and above all else, loved. You are so, so loved.
