A Love so Great
"Oh, it is wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father loves us — even with all our flaws! His love is such that even should we give up on ourselves, He never will."
Joseph B. Wirthlin - 2007 Oct. Gen. Conf
There are many times in my life when I have unintentionally hurt someone. And yet, they forgive me. I feel as if I don't deserve their kindness afterward.
I think about how this applies to my Father in Heaven. I have to admit that I've fumbled so hard, long and deep. I felt darkness at every turn and it was frightening. I knew I had hurt Him with one wrong choice that grew wider as it went.
The time finally came when I was able to pray without shame and I was immediately enveloped with the burning strength of the Spirit.
He never gave up on me even during those lonely, dark times.
He loves me. He loves me no matter how far I've strayed. He loves me no matter my weaknesses. He loves me no matter my shames. He loves me no matter what. For that, I am forever grateful.
How as Heavenly Father's love changed you?
