I am reading an interesting book that I would recommend. The book is called God is Not Mad at You by Joyce Meyer. The subtitle reads "You can experience real love, acceptance and guilt-free living". That sure sounds like something I want in my life.
If this is something you are struggling with or just want reaffirmed in your life I encourage you to read this book.
God loves us because He wants to, not because we deserve it. A point to ponder.
