John 16:15 All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
We each have God’s love pouring into our hearts, and that provides all the hope we need. This love-fueled hope gives us character founded in love and gives us the strength to endure suffering. In his seminal work, The Problem of Pain, C.S. Lewis wrote, “We were made not primarily that we may love God (though we were made for that too) but that God may love us, that we may become objects in which the Divine love may rest ‘well pleased’.”
MOVING FORWARD: Spend some time outside today. Bask in the knowledge that you are a pleasing and beloved child of God.
