Thank you Dave for your post. As i re-read it and the struggles you have had something you said really resonated with me. You are loved. God loves you. I have had a hard time believing that. For some reason i know God loves everyone, it is just hard to believe he loves me. What i am learning about that is .....What do i think love is? It hasn’t occurred to me before that my failure to believe in God’s love for me is more about what i think love is....than whether or not He loves me. Do we measure God’s love by the parents he gave us? By the circumstances and trials in our lives? By answered prayer? How do we know what love is? Do we learn it here on earth or is it something we “should” (((I HATE SHOULD))) just know? We are surrounded by beauty and I can’t help but see God’s hand. I know the Bible tells us He loves us and i can hold on to that when i really start to wonder. But again, is my “disbelief” more about where, how and what I have learned about love and how that translates to how i feel about God’s love.
