11: Receiving God's Love

You once assumed that God’s posture toward you would imitate what you had experienced in human relationships. This is natural. But you are discovering that God’s love is of a different order than much of what you’ve encountered. God’s steadfast love and faithfulness cannot fail. Even when you do not feel it, God’s loving grip is sure. God is not someplace else; God is here. God is not for someone else at your expense; God is for you. God will not reject, forsake, or abandon you. In every moment you have access to the one who cares for you. Even in the darkest moments of your experience, nothing has, nothing can, and nothing ever will separate you from what is most real.
