I was thinking over all we have talked about so far and I knew exactly what needed to come next. Some of the things we have talked about include being seen by God, finding purpose in a difficult circumstance, steps to overcoming a difficult circumstance and even slowing down. Well, now I want to remind you that you are LOVED by God in the midst of a difficult circumstance. I want to remind you of this because when I was going through a very difficult circumstance I questioned God's love for me. I was full of "why me's" and I felt very abandoned by God. I wish someone would have told me that even though I was hurting and going through difficulty that God loved me. The truth is that I didn't trust the character of God and it caused me to believe the lies of the enemy. I had to learn that a difficult circumstance did NOT mean that God was not with me or that he didn't love me.
Friend, no one has a perfect life. We have all been through something. The good news is that there is HOPE in Jesus. If you find yourself questioning God’s love for you, cling to this scripture below.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”
Romans 8:35 NIV
