I do not have everything perfect in my life. I have struggles and sin just like everyone else. Sometimes I get frustrated and lose my patience with those I love, and I react in ways that are not pleasing to God.
Just yesterday I walked through this type of situation. Afterward I became so upset with myself because of how I responded. I put myself in a sort of time-out from God, not even sure He would want to talk to me. Of course I know this is not true, but it was how I felt because of my failure. I was letting the fact that I fell short block out my ability to receive the truth of God’s love for me.
It was hard to hear His voice while dwelling on how I felt like a failure. Though I am growing in leaps and bounds in other areas of my life in God, in this area I sometimes mess up so badly and it causes me pain.
Deep down I know without a doubt that God’s love never changes toward me, and today He spoke to me what I shared above, that He already knew the challenge I was going to face during this season of my life, and He loves me the same. He hears my heart and He knows that I want to please Him even though I failed the day before.
God speaks the same to you too. He sees your heart and He knew every decision you would ever make. He already knew you would be where you are today and He loves you. He has chosen you and He calls you His own beautiful and anointed son or daughter.

“Your eyes saw my unformed substance,
and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written
before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.“
(Psalm 139:16 AMP)
