Feeling loved, wanted, appreciated and belonging are basic human needs that most everybody feels. Sadly there are those in the world that may never know the love of another person, the companionship of a true friend or the joy of being in a family. Some may feel unloved and may even have been shunned to the point that they feel unworthy of anyone’s affection.
This is simply not true! The good news is that God created each of us in His own image (Genesis 1:27). We are special to Him and always will be. The truth is that God is “in love” with us and He desires that we be “in love” with Him.
Now this is not a romantic type of love, but something much deeper and stronger. When God created each of us in His image He placed potential in us. He saw someone created to bring Him glory and to live their life in accordance to His will.
The world will look at us and see only our physical appearance, but our Heavenly Father looks at us in love and sees so much more. He sees His precious child, He sees the plans that He has for us and He sees the blessings He has for our lives (Jeremiah 29:11).
Accept this love that God has for each of us and let it fill the emptiness. Choose to walk with Him and you will never be alone again.
