Do you worry that God may be angry with you? Do you feel inadequate and afraid of how God sees you? Jesus described himself as "gentle and humble" and we know that he perfectly reflects the Father. This book will help you see beyond the judgment of God to the heart of the loving Father who is ready to embrace the sinner, and who wants to care for us and lead us gently into an ever-deepening love and enthusiasm for him. God wants his children to be secure, free, and joyous in his presence. Join Angi Johnson on a deep but accessible journey through the Scripture. Explore the gentleness in God, and learn to let go of the worries and fears that are hampering true intimacy with God.
