Read an Excerpt

Do You Love Me Even Now

Dear God in Heaven,

    I come to You with mixed emotions. I know in my head that You

love me -- I've read of Your love in the Bible; I've heard it preached in church;

I've even felt it at times. But do You love me all the time? I don't really see

how You could.

    I mean, there are times when I feel as if I have it

together -- when my life is in balance, when I've been kind to my family and

coworkers, when I'm having successes at work -- and I can see how You might love me

then. But there are other times when I have absolutely nothing together.

    I'm living through one of those times right now. My

relationship with my spouse is filled with tension, I've been snapping at my

children all week, and I'm in a real slump at work. And the scary part of it is,

I've lost confidence in my ability to make things right again.

    Somewhere inside me, I know that this distance I feel from

You is a lack of trust in the power of Your love, but I can't seem to shake this

feeling of separation from You.

    I've got to know. I need to hear from You. Do You love me

even now?

Your Unlovable Child

Dear Beloved,

    My love for you is not dependent on how you feel or what

you've done. While I am a God who expects you to strive to please Me, I know

that you are frail -- that you are made only of dust. I know all about you: your

weaknesses, your failings, your regrets, your doubts. I know these things, for I

have created you.

    Iknow your thoughts before you think them; I know exactly

what you are going to say before you open your mouth. I know the good and the

bad of you, and yet I love you still. I love you because that is what I do -- it is

My very essence. My love is not based on your performance. It is Who I am.

    My love is unlike any earthly love you have known. For My

love never fails. It is as vast as the heavens; it reaches beyond the clouds; it

fills the entire earth. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills removed,

yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken. For I am a God who has

compassion on you.

    You ask if I love you even now. Yes, a thousand times over.

Yes! I love you even now.

Your God of Everlasting Love

Isaiah 54:10

"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love

for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the Lord,

who has compassion on you.

2 Peter 3:14

Make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.

Psalm 103:14

He understands how weak we are; he knows we are only dust.
