Matthew 13:45-46

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who when he had found one pearl of great price went and sold all the he had and bought it.

So does God really fight for me? Does he? I say yes. God wants us and will trade everything for us. That is what this verse says. I believe God will do everything in his power to save us, to save me. I have seen this in my life which I tend to forget when I am depressed. During my depression HE is right beside me fighting to keep me from falling over to the "dark side." I haven't always been able to keep from falling but I have been able to climb out because of HIM. He has fought for me in so many ways and yet when I am sad I don't believe that I am a beloved child of Christ. I don't believe I am loved. I don't believe that God wants me. Yet, he does, otherwise I wouldn't be here. I have been repeating this verse last night and this morning, and will do so throughtout the day. It goes in hand with Psalm 8:4
What is man (who am I) that you are mindful of him (me), And the son of man (me) that YOU visit him (me).
The question is God do you really love me? Are you really out there? Do you really visit me? Can you really love someone like me? How is it you can answer my prayers and be by my side?
Yes HE loves me, HE listens to me, HE feels my brokenness, and HE is out there hearing my prayers.

What a great way to help others! We all need to be reminded that no matter how bad it is, God is still there listening and working on our probems. Sometimes they are just too big for us to handle alone and all He wants us to do is to just let go and let Him! My favorite prayer is -

Dear God,
I can't
You can
Please do
Amen
