To some people reading this, this question would seem absurd. But to others, if you’re honest, it’s a question you have asked in your life.

So is He? Is God mad at you? Maybe that’s why things have gone wrong in your life. Maybe that’s why you can’t let go of your past. Maybe that’s why you can’t step into the doorway of a church.

No matter what your past has held or where you find yourself at this moment, reading this blog….please allow me to speak truth into your heart.

  1. God loves you with a fierce, unrelenting, unwavering love. It’s unlike any love you’ve ever known or can comprehend. It’s sacrificial, it’s selfless and it cannot expand or diminish no matter what we do.
  2. God delights in showing us mercy. The Bible says that God’s mercies are new every morning. So just in case you think you used up all of yesterday’s mercy, there’s brand new mercy for today.

The definition of mercy is this: compassion or forgiveness shown towards someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.

How crazy is that!? It’s one thing to forgive or let it go because there’s not much you could do about it anyway. But God’s mercy, is compassion and forgiveness in place of punishment or harm.

The world can paint God as a mean old man, ready to strike you with lightning the minute you put a foot wrong. But that’s not how the Bible describes Him. He is patient and kind, not wanting anyone to live this life or the next without Him.

I have been so encouraged by this verse:

Isaiah 30:18, “Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!”

So you see, God isn’t mad at you. Quite the opposite! He longs to extend forgiveness and favour to you, if you will just turn to Him and accept His love. He’s waiting with arms open wide.
