Am I worthy of God's Love?

by Donna
(Greencastle, PA)

Lord am i worthy of your love; each year during the Holiday season my spirits drop leaving me to feel depleted, weeping daily, asking myself will I ever discover true happiness. I was raised as a Foster child, spent most of my childhood years in many different foster homes, have never felt a sense of belonging.

To pray and ask you Lord for the opportunity to purchase my first small and simple home for my 2 beautiful children, my angels and a (this) home that I could actually call my "true" home, would my (this) prayer request be selfish and self serving?

Each morning I begin my day with reading my bible, today I studied Isaiah 41:10. When I pray I find that I'm frequently asking you Lord for miracles for me and my children, please forgive me Lord for my selfish request.

God Loves YOU.

Dear Loved One
None of us is worthy of God's love yet the Bible says that "While we were still sinners Christ died for us." So yes you are loved by God very greatly. He desires your whole body soul and spirit to be His. His great gift is to make you holy righteous and blameless before the Heavenly Father. It is done by His holy sacrifice on the cross not by our own works. The apostle Paul says in Titus 3:3
"At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone,"
Good works are important but only as a reflection of the love that God has poured out into our hearts by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. The Bible even says that God had given us these good works to do as a gift as we live and walk through lives as believers. Here's is what Ephesians 2:8-10 says:
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Dear Lord please grant the petitions of this child of yours who has suffered feelings of rejection all their life. We know that you have not rejected them and that you see their need. Please heal the difficult memories they carry that cause them to feel left out or like there is no place for them. Give them a true home for family love and sharing your mercy with others in hospitality. You know our needs and you say you will provide for us. Open doors to make the desire of this heart a reality. Thank you for your gift of love and peace and joy for all who trust in you. AMEN Merry Christmas.
