WHY?

I have dedicated this site to declaring God’s absolute and intimate love for each person.  This message has become my passion.
So here’s a question:
Why is this so important?
God loves you; so what?  How has knowing His complete and profound love for you made a difference in your life?

 

I can think of at least a few ways in which I have been impacted by this knowledge:
*I strive much less now:  I act and serve BECAUSE I am loved; not in order to earn God’s approval or affection.

 

*Knowing that Papa God loves me; that I am precious to him gives me security:  Things can happen that normally might upset me; people can say things that are less than complimentary:  I’m okay because Daddy loves me.

 

*I have more to give:  I get filled up first; then share what I have.  This way beats the religious approach of trying to come up with answers or “ministry” on my own!

 

*I expect more from God:  His goodness is far greater than anything I could ever imagine.  Trusting His regard for me has opened my heart to Him.

 

Now it’s your turn.  I am hoping to hear from you!

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
