The reason God loves you is that he has chosen to love you.

Others may abandon you, divorce you, and ignore you.  God will love you.  These are his words: “I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved” (Romans 9:25 THE MSG).

Let this love happen in your life, and prepare yourself for a new day.  As God has his way with you, he will not let you live with your old hatred and prejudices.  You will see people in a different way.  The neighbor down the street?  He’s not a person who forgets to mow his lawn.  He is made in the image of God.

God loves a diverse creationAnd God’s love finds beauty in the collage of humanity.  Life will become less a chore and more a stroll through God’s art gallery.  And this is how happiness happens.
