Every good christian knows in their "head" that God loves them.
However very often.....
Even though your head may think it ....
your heart doesn't fully believe it.
There is this disconnect.
What you know in your head never seeps down into the depths of your heart.
I like how Asheritah Ciuciu says it on her blog.
"Many of us grow up doubting the love of God because of the relationships we have with others. Broken relationships, hurt from others, or even our own bad choices and cause us to doubt why God would choose to love us. Sometimes well-meaning churches even misguide us into thinking that we need to earn God's love by behaving or acting "good enough". God demonstrated the greatest act of love when Jesus Christ died on the cross for us. We no longer have to work toward being love, it is given freely for all. "
