So why this blog? This blog is part of my mandate from Jesus to “Go into all the world and tell His people He loves them!” I share about my own story (and continuing journey) about how God rescued and saved me when I was just about as low as I could go without actually leaving the planet and living in hell permanently. And He did it simply because He loves me. Did I deserve it? Not at all. I sat one day at the dining room table absolutely miserable and lost. I recall saying out loud, “God if you are so real, then why am I so miserable?” I had gotten so far away from God that I began to doubt that He even existed. And I grew up in a Christian home, went to Christian schools, etc. Not long after that moment at the dining room table, as I was attempting to plunge the largest kitchen knife I had into my gut to kill myself, God showed up. I wanted to die, I deserved to die, and I tried to die. But He wouldn’t let me. He proved His Word to me from Romans 5:8. And I am and will be forever grateful!
God truly does love each and every one of us. There is nothing we can do to “earn” His love. He just loves us with an everlasting love. In fact, He IS Love according to 1 John 4:8 and 16. If you’ve ever wondered, or are wondering, if God really does love you, or struggle to see how much, I invite you to come along with me on this journey. It is my goal to be open and transparent to help others believe and know the love God has for us regardless of past failures or mistakes.
