Jesus Loves ME!!!!!

Today's devotional was by Mary Southerland. It was called, "Yes, Jesus Loves Me!" ( It talked about how Jesus loves each of us so much! Sometimes I feel like the stress of my days can really just weigh me down and take some of that day-to-day joy away...which really shouldn't be! This devotional really encouraged me to change my way of thinking! No matter how hard or stressful my days might get I need to remember that Jesus loves me! If we simply reflect on the love of God, all the stress of the day can just slip away! Mary Southerland mentioned how she could think of God's love and thoughts of when she first "met" God and all the blessings within her relationship with Him would come flooding to her mind! All the stresses and worries of her day would simply disappear!

Sometimes we let even the little things get in the way, allowing us to forget that God is there with us throughout the day and loves us UNCONDITIONALLY! What a joy it is to think that no matter what we do or what we go through, God still and always will love us! Other may fail us and walk away from us, but not God! He promises to walk with us through every part of our life--the good and the bad! What an encouragement that can bring such joy to our hearts. Someone...not just any someone, but the Almighty God and our Savior will always love us and walk along side of us if we simply follow His Word and obey Him! Praise God!

"Jesus Loves Me"
Jesus loves me! this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
they are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.
