God Doesn't Love Me
I want to tell you something right now. We are a community. We help each other out. We were not meant to live this life by ourselves. I want to point something out to you guys. Just because you see other people being successful in their lives or at least projecting success on instagram and facebook does not mean that they got there alone. A lot of us are so afraid to get help from other people because then we feel like we are losers. We feel like we should be able to take care of everything on our own so we struggle in silence and we would rather drown alone than ask for help. I say this all the time, but I want to encourage you guys to find people in your life that you can talk to when times get hard. I want you to find people that you turn to when you have no idea what you are doing. Sometimes we all need people like that.
I also want to tell you that I, along with anyone in your life, do not have the answers. I have so many unanswered questions in my own life. I just come on here and try to tell you what I have learned from my own experiences but I will not pretend like my answers are perfect, and I certainly will not pretend that I have all of the answers. I am not God, okay? So many of us look around and see everyone trying to play God all the time. People like to pretend that they have all of the answers, but they don’t.
A lot of us are praying for the things that aren’t going to help us in our lives because we don’t have the answers and we don’t really know what we are doing and then we think God doesn’t love us when he doesn’t answer those prayers. Let me tell you something, it is the humans in your life letting you down, not God. Someone told me a great quote a long time ago that changed my life. They said, “Don’t let the imperfections of christians keep you from the perfection of Christ.” In the same way, don’t let the imperfections of people keep you from the perfection of God. A lot of us are doing that though. We get upset in our lives because things are not going exactly the way we want them to in our lives so we feel like God is not answering our prayers and then we say God does not love me, but that is not true. In reality, God could be protecting you. In reality, you do not know what you are praying for. You do not know what that could potentially bring to your life. The reason your prayer was not answered the way you wanted it to be was because God had something better for you. If you want to see the love of God then you have got to start having trust in God. Not everything in your life is going to pay off immediately. You have to be willing to be patient to see the extent to God’s love in your life.
It all starts with you.
