He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

He Loves Me!



He Loves Me Not.

He Loves Me Not.
 I think this is the view we have of God sometimes. He is loving and kind when we have what we want. But He must not think very much of us when things are not going our way! My 5 year old told me this morning... out of the blue, "I know you don't want to discipline me because you love me." 


I explained to him that, while that was true, it is because I love him that I discipline him. That is so easy for me to grasp as a mother. I discipline because I love my children. I withhold massive amounts of candy. I do not give them every toy they have ever laid eyes because I know it is not ultimately what is best for them. But when God does it to me... well sometimes the idea is just not as easy to grasp. 


If I am being honest this is probably a more accurate account of my feelings.




I Love Him!

  2. Isn't it wonderful that He loves us just because He does. We can;t earn it. I know I could never have it together enough.

  3. Ugh, I wish I could say I didn't know this feeling, but unfortunately I do. I am so glad that my God is a God that loves all the time - through the good and the bad!
