God's Love - Dorothy Bentley

God knew I would be strong-willed and insist on making my own way through life.

Even though He could have, He didn't stop me from making a mess of things.

He is a Gentleman, not forcing anything upon me. He gave me free will.

God is close to the brokenhearted.

When I finally turn to Him because of my emptiness and disappointment, He accepts me.

He washes away my mistakes and gives me a fresh start.
He never turns me away.

Sometimes I am too busy to think about God, but He is never too busy to think about me.

Though time travels in a straight line for me, it doesn't for God. He created time, space, physics. He can travel in time and be everywhere at once, with everyone. I can barely understand this, but He is with me.

God created me to walk with Him through life; to talk with Him about everything. He wants to give me guidance for how to live; to help me with all the issues in my life. God cares about me.

Only He can fill the emptiness and give my life a worthwhile purpose

When I focus on myself, I am discouraged.
When I focus on God, I am amazed.

He loves me.

He loves me so much, that He wants me to live with him forever in eternity. There are no strings attached, no price I need to pay.
He already took care of that.
He sent his own Son, Jesus, His human form, to come as a Man and die for me.
He paid the entry price of Heaven for me.
All I have to do is believe.

Just believe.

Do I believe?
Is Jesus real?
Is there really a Heaven and hell?
Why did God become a man?
Why would He die on a cross for me?


Because He loves me.

  1. Oh Dorothy.... isn't He amazing!

    Enjoyed the couplet: When I focus on myself, I am discouraged. When I focus on God, I am amazed.

    I so find it true in my own life too.
