And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him. —1 John 4:16
Most people can believe God loves them if they think they deserve it. Problems arise when you feel you do not deserve God’s love and yet desperately need it. God’s love for you is perfect—and unconditional.
When you fail He keeps loving you because His love is not based on you but on Him.
Sin separated you from God, but He loved you so much He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for you so He could lavish His great love upon you. If you can believe that God, who is so perfect, loves you, then you can believe you are worth loving! When that happens you can accept yourself in a new way that will be life changing.
You’re special; you have worth and value . . . believe it, receive it, and be all you can be in Christ.
