Have you ever struggled with feeling unloved? Perhaps you are alone and feel like you have been forgotten, overlooked, or abandoned. Maybe you even believe the lie that you are unlovable, or that you are somehow unworthy of love.
While these feelings may seem overwhelming at times, it’s good to remember that while feelings are real, they are not always reliable. While imperfect people in your life may have harmed or failed you, your perfect Heavenly Father is always there for you. His love is unfailing. And no matter what mistakes or wrong turns you have made along the way, you are never beyond the reach of God’s incredible love.
To help you remember that you are seen, heard, and treasured by the Lord, here are 15 verses about God’s great love for you. His love is unfathomable, unending, life-altering—and freely given to you.

- “‘For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10)

- “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
- “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17-19)
- “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” (1 John 3:1a)
- “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.” (1 John 4:8-9)
- “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” (1 John 4:16)
God’s ultimate expression of love for us—and the greatest act of love that anyone could do (John 15:13)—was sending His Son, Jesus, to die in our place (Romans 5:7-8) so that we can live forever with Him (John 3:16). If you’ve never experienced that love or trusted in God’s love for you (1 John 4:16), He would love for you to take that step today.
