227 – Have you ever wondered if God still loves you?

All too often we think of all the mistakes we've made or the things that have happened to us, and somehow decide God must not love us anymore, that we're not worthy of His love.

But no matter what you've done ( or not done that you should have), no matter what mistakes you've made, big or small, God still loves you. It's as simple as that.

Why do we make it so complicated?

In this week's episode, I share some of my personal journey to actually accepting and believing that God really does love me.  I'm curious if you have gone through a similar process.

Here are some of the points along the way to accepting the fact that God still loves you.

  • Sometimes it begins with intellectually knowing that God loves you, even though you don't feel you deserve it
  • Getting over the belief that God loves you only when you do something right
  • Realizing that God sent Jesus to earth because He loves everyone – Gasp! that includes you
  • If you had been with Jesus as one of his followers or asking him to heal you, he would have loved you just as he loved all the folks he ministered to
  • If Jesus loves you, it's because he could see God love you (see John 5:19)
  • Talking to God and asking why He loves you
  • Listening to what God says
  • Believing what God says

A conversation with God:
I also share a little conversation I had with God several years ago that helped me accept God's love for me. 

God still loves you. He will never give up on you. No matter who you are, where you’re from, what you’ve done, what you haven’t done, whatever your circumstances are, God still loves you. He will do whatever it takes for you to accept and experience His love.
