One thought on “I’m curious…

  1. I feel like I can elaborate on your blog more than I could on fb.

    Psalm 18:19 tells me that God saved me because He delights in me.

    God loves me. He delights in me. He enjoys spending time with me. He loves when I talk to Him. He loves hearing from me. He is merciful towards me. He bends down to listen to me when I pray to Him. He is pleased that I place my faith in Him. He sings over me. He shows me the way of life. He lights up my darkness. He has made a home for me in the Heavens. He is always changing me from glory to glory. God loves me. This I know to be true. I know that I know that I know that my God loves me.

    God loves me.

    God does not love my sin.

    As a matter of fact, my sin grieves the very heart of God. My sin separates me from God. My sin makes me unworthy. My sin keeps me from experiencing the very best of God.

    My sin is why I need Jesus.

    God is only pleased with me because He boundlessly pleased with Jesus.

    Satan will lie to us and tell us that God is disappointed in us. That is impossible. Disappointment comes when people behave in a manner that we didn’t expect. God knew me before He formed me. He created me. He knows everything about me. He is not caught off guard when I behave less than He calls me to. God knew when Jesus took His last breath on the cross that Cindy would continue to struggle in her flesh even after she placed her total trust in the redeeming grace of her Creator and Savior.

    We have two choices. We can either choose to believe Satan or we can choose to believe God’s word.

    When we stay focused on the unchanging, unmoving and infinite love of God who loves us simply because we are and He is, we will begin to feel more love for God and more of His love for us.

    In the end, it doesn’t matter how I think God feels about me. I can’t (and certainly don’t want to) change the work of the cross. It is done. 2000 years ago, on a hill called Calvary, God told me how he felt about me. God sent Jesus to die for my sins because He loves me.

    And that is the truth.

    Regardless of what I think or feel.

    “The Lord’s great love is new every morning. The Lord is my portion. He is good to those who depend on Him for all things.” -Lamentations 3:24-25
