Re: Does God even care?
What a question... Does God even care?
Yes, He cares. He cares so much that He came to this earth and died on the Cross for you. He lowered himself to our level, He became human, He had flesh... but not sin. He could have changed the path while He was here but He didn't. He could have chose to not get spit on, or ridiculed, or nailed to a Cross for our sake, but He did it. Is that not enough to show that He cares? His love for you goes beyond measure. You know how sometimes you see a parent love there child to the point of no return... well, with Him... His love is to far for our human brain to even comprehend that we need to pray for the power to understand how far, how long, how wide, and how deep His love really is for us. Picture that. We can't... because it's to big. It's to huge. It goes beyond our span to even understand. He put himself on this earth to bring Truth into our lifes. He wants to be with us... not against us. He is the reason we realize our sin. He is the reason why we are here. He is the reason why we long to be with a God so Holy as Himself. Please, take time to see that even though the Lord may be not giving you the answer right now that'd You'd like... do not forget everything that He has given us everyday to show us His love and care and His mercy. As I'm writing this, I almost feel like crying. Because I too, ask God if He cares when I don't get what I am wanting to hear. How much pain He must feel when I sit there and act as if He doesn't care. He does care. He will care for you until the end of time. When you spend eternity with Him, it's all because of what He did. Everything He did was for your sake.
Please never feel like He doesn't care or want you or want to answer you. He loves You.
Read Psalm 139. He new you before the foundation of the earth.
That is love.
Always remember, God can give no bad gift. Even though you are physically in pain, take comfort in knowing that spiritually, you are being renewed everyday by Christ. Your physical body may fail, but your spiritual body is made new. You are not alone with your illness, that's for sure. But one thing, use this illness as a time to give glory to the Father who will never leave you forsake you or abandon you during this time. Be an instrument through all of it. That may even help your healing process. Changing your attitude towards it could possibly help you. Rest in God and be still.
Why are you searching for love? Why are you still looking as if I'm not enough?
