God’s love

The Lord your God is living among you. … He will take delight in you with gladness. … He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.—Zephaniah 3:17 NLT

I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.—Romans 8:38–39 NLT

Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely. … He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken.―Dieter F. Uchtdorf (b. 1940)

Your Heavenly Father loves you—each of you. That love never changes. It is not influenced by your appearance, by your possessions, or by the amount of money you have in your bank account. It is not changed by your talents and abilities. It is simply there. It is there for you when you are sad or happy, discouraged or hopeful. God’s love is there for you whether or not you feel you deserve love. It is simply always there. —Thomas S. Monson (b. 1927)

God is love. He didn’t need us. But he wanted us. And that is the most amazing thing.—Rick Warren (b. 1954)

God’s unfailing love for us is an objective fact affirmed over and over in the Scriptures. It is true whether we believe it or not. Our doubts do not destroy God’s love, nor does our faith create it. It originates in the very nature of God, who is love, and it flows to us through our union with His beloved Son.—Jerry Bridges (1929–2016)

The maker of the stars would rather die for you than live without you. And that is a fact. So if you need to brag, brag about that.—Max Lucado (b. 1955)
