He Listens

I don't know about you, but sometimes the world's view of love is all I see. You gotta earn it. It is a growing thing to realize that I have a Savior who won't love me more, better, or differently depending on what I do. Lately the focus of prayer for me has been to feel more of God's love, and less of what I need to do to earn it. Probably because I still see myself with all the "soul scars" as Pastor Guy refers to sins we still carry even though they have been forgiven, I need to be reassured that God does indeed love me. I was praying intently to that end after a long day, and God answered my prayer through a dream. I dreamt that I was wandering around the hotel that I used to work at and people were looking at me like I didn't belong there. Someone handed me a card that said "You are not the same anymore. Hebrews 2:6". I remembered the dream vividly when I woke up and looked up Hebrews 2:6. It says "But someone has testified somewhere, What are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals, that you care for them?" Wow. How awesome of God to have concern for a sinner like me in need of a little hand holding. "I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live." Psalm 116:1-2
