What Love Really Means

This week has kind of been one of those weeks. I have really struggled with a lot of stuff internally like body image, comparison, and jealousy (What girl doesn't, right?!) I have struggled with this for so long, and I am finally starting to really notice that I am doing it and I am always reminding myself to see God's love for me and that whenever I put myself down (which, unfortunately, is a lot) it really hurts God and hurts me too. Last week, I was on my way to class and I heard this song on the radio, and I just started to cry. The words at the end are saying that God is telling this person that he will love him for who he is and not what he has done, or who he will become. That was such an amazing moment for me. I felt very overwhelmed with God's love for me and now, I just need to constantly keep telling myself that to really really believe it. I feel like it will, yes, it will take some time, but I do feel like eventually it will come!

Thank you Jesus for dying for us and showing us the most amazing act of love ever.

Here is the song:

1 Samuel 16:7
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”


  1. I LOVE this song, Erica! In case you didn't know, she's going to be at the Wareham on June 4th. You should probably go if you're in town. Preferably with me. :)

    By the way, you're beautiful. Don't ever doubt it.

  2. That sounds to good to be true!! I feel as if we shall go! =) And thank you, that means a lot. =)

  3. I know! And okay, it's a date then. :)

    You're very welcome. :)
