You Are Always God’s beloved

Something bad, painful or horrible happened yesterday. Or will today. Or could tomorrow. When it does – and it will – it’s tempting to think that there’s nothing you can do, that you just have to take it and that you’re going to be scarred forever. And when it happens repeatedly, it’s really easy to begin to sink into the mire of hopelessness. But you’re not hopeless. And your life is never hopeless. You are always God’s beloved. And that means God already is at work taking your worst moments and turning them into something beautiful.
