What’s up guys?! I hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving! I know I did!
I recently listened to a song that I have heard before, but I guess I never really listened to the words. It is “God who Stays” by Matthew West. It talks about how God is a God that, no matter what, He always stays.
God will never leave you, even when everyone else walks away. God RUNS in our direction. Isn’t that amazing? God will never walk out on you.
In Hebrews chapter 13 verse 5 it quotes Deuteronomy 31:6 which says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
It doesn’t matter what you do, He is there watching over you.
I can be an annoying person; I just have that kind of personality. Even though I drive others away, God stays. He stays. He loves me so much that He stays.
People have given up on me so many times; they have written me off and said that I’m not worth investing in, but my God stays! My God actually runs to ME!
To me, that’s amazing. The god of the whole universe stays with me! I am a mess up from the floor up and still God never abandons me.
Honestly, I have given up on myself before. Yes, I have just thrown up my arms and quit. I have told myself that it’s not worth it — that I’m not worth it. I have actually offered God and others in my life an “out”. Some have taken it, but God never does.
He does the same for you.
It doesn’t matter what you do, He is always with you and for you and in you! Isn’t that amazing?!
You might think that you are beyond help, or beyond the reach of love, but God says differently. God says that you are loved, you are His, and you are the apple of His eye. He loves you so much! You can never annoy God or drive Him away because you are His child!
You are not a lost cause. You are a King’s kid.
Remember, God loves you and so do I.
