Let God Love You

Periodically, I am overcome by deep struggle. The past couple of days it was the worst. It was as severe as former days when I was wrecked by mental and emotional distress. It overcame me and took hold. I could not be released no matter how hard I tried.

In my life I desire everything I experience to be with God intimately involved, no mater what it is. I seek something to learn, to grow, but this time find it so hard. There is no easy answer. I am perplexed by my own mind. Perhaps the answer is simply to pick myself up, keep moving, and serve Him, leaving it in His hands. Today is a new day, a new week.

In some ways, walking with the Lord is a call for us to let Him love us. I invite you this week to read Psalm 139 every day. I will be doing the same. In the midst of our struggles, let's get a picture of how intimate God’s amazing love is for us in Christ.

Our mental or emotional experiences can cloud our judgment. God is still God. He is good, all the time.
