Sure you have. Who hasn't?
Did you ever feel like you failed God? That you're not deserving of His favor because you messed up?
If you're like the majority of people, even Christians, my guess is that you may believe that you're not always worthy of God's love because of a past sin, a current struggle, or even a lost temper.
Jennifer Rothschild's latest book, 66 WAYS GOD LOVES YOU addresses that issue in a fascinating way--through the discovery of God's love in every book of the Bible.
In Deuteronomy, God keeps His covenant of love to me and to a thousand generations.

This didn't resonate with me...until after the kinked hose incident.
After a long day at work, I was tired and cranky. I felt overwhelmed by all the things still to do at home.
I went outside to water the flowers, but the hose was kinked. Water trickled out as I attempted to unravel it. The hose didn't cooperate, and I became more frustrated.
Then, I lost it.
The water may have been blocked, but a torrent of words rushed from my mouth--and they weren't streams of living water.
My futile attempt to fix the hose continued as I tried to now hang it back up. In the process, the water began to flow freely--all over my head. It would have been funny if I weren't so tired and frustrated.
Instead, I felt worse. Unworthy. Unlovable.
Then I read this:
He will never reject you even when you blow it. He will find you worthy of His affection even when you fail.
Jennifer Rothschild, 66 Ways God Loves You.
Not "if" but "when" you fail. Because we all will. We all do.
Even when I don't keep my promise to God, He still keeps His. I am always worthy of his affection.
This is just one of 66 marvelous revelations I discovered in this little book. Rich illustrations and concise teachings make this a lovely book for gift-giving or keeping for yourself to use as a devotional. Or just a quiet reminder of God's love at the end of the day.
I have a extra copy AND a stylish tote to give away! All you have to do is comment below, on Facebook (where this will be posted), or with an email response. I'll pick a winner at random.
