It’s difficult to feel close to God when we don’t know how God feels about us. Like a little child, we may think he’s angry at us for things we’ve done wrong, or that he has the same damaged opinion of us that we have of ourselves. The song that I’ve linked to here is a heart-rending expression of how God feels about us. It touched me deeply today, and I hope it touches you deeply as well.
Further, this blog post explains some more about how God views us and feels toward us.
I hope that you draw close to God as you realize how much he cares for you.
