does God care?

I think about God a lot. Sometimes I feel like I’m connected to him, sometimes I don’t feel it, but I know he is still there.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about people who have issues that make them feel far off from God.  I don’t like that — people feeling like God doesn’t care about them. It’s not true. God cares.

If a person’s issues have social shame, then that person may be transferring society’s judgement of their problem to God. They may think that God sees them in the same way society does.

If a person attends religious services, that person may look around, and seeing a bunch of “together” people, think, “I don’t fit here. I bet no one here has my issue.”  It’s so easy to get isolated, from other people and God.

But the New Testament says that God has so much love for us that even when we were all messed up, God sent Jesus to give his life for us. That a wildly different and attractive kind of love.

I believe that. And I believe that God totally adores you right now and wants to be a part of your life, even if you don’t have it together. What do you think?

    Your “reflections” articles are practical and biblically based. They take a refreshing look at life and how exciting life can become when we reflect long enough to allow God to bring us peace, perspective, and healing into the puzzling and even chaotic circumstance of our lives. You certainly are blessed to be a blessing to others!
