When we focus on pleasing ourselves or living up to other people’s expectations, we feel unstable and oddly unsatisfied. When we focus on accepting, abiding in, and responding to God’s love, we find our true identity and live in confidence in our relationship with the God who loves us unconditionally. God’s love changes us. It meets our deepest needs and heals our souls. Confidence in the love of God gives birth to hope, joy, and peace, regardless of our circumstances. Entrust yourself to the God of hope as you go about your day.
