My Favorite Bible Verse FREE Printable

The word of God is a double-edged sword --- it convicts us, but it also brings us comfort. As a Christian, John 3:16 has a very powerful message. God loves us so much that He gave His only Son, a sacifice that is not to be taken lightly. I have always loved this verse, even as a kid. I did not fully understand it then but it never failed to bring me reassurance. But as I got older, the verse that really stood out for me is this one.

"For I know the plans I have for you," said the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to hurt you, plans to give you hope and a future."


For those times when I feel unwanted, disliked, hated, rejected, and it seems like people disapprove of everything I do, or not do, or what I look like, or what I come from, I know in my heart of hearts that God loves me, and He put me here for a reason. 

I am not perfect but He loves me and He has a plan for me. It doesn't matter what my circumstances are, God has always been and will always be there for me. 

I am not an accident. 

I am not an embarrassment. 

I am loved. 

I am a child of God.
