I have to admit - it's hard to wrap my mind around the concept that God loves me - in spite of myself.
My wife bought me a painting a few years ago that meant quite a bit to me. It hangs prominently in our home and every time I walk by it, I am reminded that God loves me, in spite of myself.
While this snapshot does not convey the actual painting (in it, the guy held by Jesus is holding a nail and a hammer...)...I am really needing this truth in my life.
Just remember: Jesus loves you and desires a relationship with you even more than you wish to have a relationship with him.
