Yes, Jesus Loves me

I was just singing this to A when I laid him down for bed. The words touched my heart when my 2.5 yr old son starting singing them in his sweet little voice.

Jesus loves me, this I know
for the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to him belong.
They are weak, but he is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me.
Yes, Jesus loves me, the bible tells me so.

You know, my children believe me when I tell them that I love them. Simply because I tell them. I always ask A and O "do you know mommy loves you?" They always say, with exasperation, "yes, mommy!"

Why is it, then, so hard for me to believe that Jesus really does love me. Why is it so hard to believe that he love me when I'm struggling with grief? Then I remember what I need to do. I need to read his love letter to me. I need to get into the Bible and read about his love again, because it tells me over and over that he does love us all. So, he loves ME!
