Do you ever ask yourself: Who really is this God who made us? Let’s reflect on that today. God is strong and upholds us. God is gentle and compassionate. God is simple and uncomplicated. God is very, very patient. God is peaceful and can calm our fears. God will help us through adversity. We can be assured that God is with us every step of the way, every day that we live. God is merciful and forgiving. We also must forgive others and ourselves so that we can release any anger and be healthy. God is joy and is the one being who can satisfy all of our deepest longings. Knowing that God loves us unconditionally and never forsakes us should be a consolation in whatever we are experiencing throughout our lives. We thank you, God, for creating us, healing us, and loving us forever.
