Can God stop loving Me?

I used to think He would if I didn’t toe the line just so… And then I thought for sure it was confirmed when I read in Isaiah 49:14,15; It states, “Zion says, ‘The Lord has abandoned me; The Lord has forgotten me!’
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, or lack compassion for the child of her womb?” When I read this I thought , Yes she can! Just look at all the abortions! Where is a mother’s compassion there? And I myself left my nursing baby when I became suicidal with severe postpartum depression. I had even thought I should take her into death with me!
Where’s the encouragement? It’s in the rest of verse 15 and then 16! “Even if these forget, yet I will not forget you. Look, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your ways are continually before Me.”
Oh what happy news! God is NOT like me! He is faithful and true. His love is forever. He can’t love me any more than he already does, and He won’t ever love me any less, no matter how much I disappoint my self. You see, I can never disappoint HIM for he knows all my failures from start to finish and is never taken by surprise when I sin. He’s already died for them all! He’s paid the price! It is finished. All that’s left for me to do is realize this truth and let it wash over me and let it change me from an unworthy, ashamed sinner, into a loved and worthy daughter of the King of kings!

The same good news applies to you! Let’s praise Him today for all that He has done for us, and all He continues to do!
I don’t know about you…but I AM encouraged by today’s scribblings!
