I agree with you. It can be so hard though to get hold of that truth and keep it in a very real way, especially if you’ve spent your life in a family or church where love is conditional in nature.

Head knowledge that you really matter to God is better than not knowing at all, but it’s that journey from head to heart that seems so incredibly difficult and important. I’ve seen so many struggle with this, myself included, and I wish there was some easier way to make that connection.

I appreciate that GCC never lets an opportunity go by that they don’t confirm that you matter to God. Given the constant, daily barrage of messages that say otherwise, it can’t be overdone.

Kathy - Thanks for your reflections on divorce and the similarities in responding to those facing divorce. Good stuff!

This is so very true! I know--I've been there. Trying to "get it right" and make a marriage work while measuring my worth by how I was (mis)treated. It took years after my divorce, and my ex long gone, to realize only God mattered, not what everyone else thought. Keep pushing forward with this--some of us take time, but with people like you teaching it and reminding, more will eventually get it!
