It seems like all we hear or talk about is the trouble in our lives or our nation’s division.

Augustine had asked two questions of the world; “If there is no God, why is there so much good?

If there is a God, why is there so much evil?”

I wonder if I’ve spent my lifetime murmuring only the second question?

Why haven’t I wondered the first question? If I think God doesn’t care about the hurting, am I not believing the very first lie hissed in the Garden to Eve? The lie that deceives us all still,

“Does God really?”

Is it easier to blame Him? To say God doesn’t care when maybe the truth is that humanity¬†doesn’t care?

He cared so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross for us.

He cared so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross for us.

The truth is God cares a whole lot more about us than we’ll ever care about Him.

Psalm 103:1-2,8

Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

Psalm 107: 1 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.

Let us not forget the good thing he has done. (Part of this was taken by Ann Voskamp 1000 gifts)

until next time, Pam
