I often used to wonder how God could love me when I mess up every day. I say the wrong things, don’t always spend my time wisely and often I see how selfish I can be. I used to feel ashamed, like I needed to hide from God.

Have you ever felt this way?
Read 2 Corinthians 3:18 here –

We need to remember that God sees us as transforming/changing people – the more we seek Him, the more like Jesus we become and THAT’S how He sees us. Jesus died so that we could be more than our mistakes.

How incredible is that!



Do you wish God would just show up already and Do Something to fix everything that’s broken in the world – or broken in your own life? It’s hard to see God’s power with His goodness. Why doesn’t He act in power for the good of the world?

Not only is God powerful and good, He’s also wise, and His ways are different from ours (they’re bigger, better, cleverer). He still has the universe in His hands. He’s working all the time, in power, for our good and His glory, even when we can’t see what He’s doing.

Read Deuteronomy 10:17 here –



Let’s get real for a moment.

Have you thought about how you use your body? The world tells us to do what we want with it – but think about what God intended your body for?

Read 1 Corinthians 6:15 ( and verses 19-20 (

Your body was bought at a high price – the death of Jesus. God tells us we’re His and we’re on earth for His purposes. We are the temple of God, where the Holy Spirit lives. We are members of Christ’s body.

How will knowing this impact the way you use yours?



We live in a cause and effect world. IF you bunk class, THEN you get detention. It’s natural for us to apply that principle to God – but it’s wrong.

God doesn’t fit into formulas, and His Kingdom ways are totally opposite to the workings of our world. It’s His kindness, not his anger or discipline or meting out of consequences, that leads us to repentance.

Paul writes about God’s wonderful kindness towards us in Romans 2:4 – read it here:

So, IF you sin, THEN God runs to you, and wraps you in His redemption.
