Psalm 31:7
I am overcome with joy because of your unfailing love for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul.

 Even in our everyday relationships we may not feel that we are loved by the significant people in our lives but that really has nothing to do with whether or not we are! Especially as women our feelings are just not always quite on track with what’s really going on.  At least mine aren’t, some days….. Your feelings will never change the simple fact that God loves you too!  He loves you right where you are even though where you are may not be His first choice for you!  The Bible is very clear that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God!  NOTHING! 

God cares about every tear you cry as well as every happy moment you share, but no matter what you are feeling about God, no matter how many times you try to tell someone God doesn’t care, it is just simply NOT true!  Don’t mistake God’s silence for not loving you or not caring!  Do you remember the story about Lazarus?  (If not check it out in John 11)  Jesus was told that Lazarus was sick and dying and he didn’t run over there to take care of him. He waited 2 more days and then walked to where Martha and Mary lived.  When He got there Lazarus had already been dead for 4 days but Jesus had waited because it gave God more glory to raise him from the dead than it did to heal his illness, and this helped others believe.  It wasn’t that Jesus didn’t care, He deeply loved Lazarus.  God’s silence is always for your good even if it seems painful at the time.  No matter where you are know that God loves you and He has your best interest at heart.  “When you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart”.

“Though feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.”  C.S. Lewis
