God loves you! No matter where you've been. No matter what you've done. He loves you like crazy. He sent His Son, Jesus, into the world, not to condemn us, but to show us His great love for us.
Anybody who has raised kids knows that everyone has sinned! That includes all of us. If our kids can't live up to our standards; if we can't love up to our own standards for ourselves; then certainly we can't live up to God's standards. In fact, we haven't. None of us has met God's standard for goodness. We all fall short of it.
No one can ever be good enough to earn or deserve God's love. He loves us, not because we're so good, but because He is so good. It's called "grace." His love is given as a gift - with no strings attached - when we put our trust in Him.
Pray something like this:
"Heavenly Father, thank you for Jesus. Thank you for sending Him to die for my sins. Father, forgive me now. Wash me clean. Give me a new start. Make me a new person. Jesus, from this day on, I'm following You. I'm turning from own agenda and choosing Your way. Holy Spirit, fill me now. Live big in me. Empower my life as I follow Christ. Teach me the heart of God. Thank you, Father, for saving me and making me your child forever and ever. Amen."
