What God wants…

A social media friend asked for prayers for her child, who is a year behind in school and being teased and ostracized. The child feels so alone. I offered prayer for strength and courage. I felt inspired to add that God had a different path for this child. I lamented that the child isn’t alone, but all of us alone are in different places. I look forward to seeing this child as an adult who will understand what this child’s peers will not. This child will know compassion and possess an ability to see below the surface.

I found this post right after:

The beautiful thing about a relationship with God is that He loves us way too much to leave us where He finds us.

This was a really tough lesson to learn… I wanted to be accepted as I am. He does, but He knows what I’ve hidden. He doesn’t want to put me on a shelf. He wants a living, breathing, growing relationship, with me, with each of His children. The awesome thing is that He isn’t limited by time or any other constraints. He’s also able to help me learn how to have this relationship. His limitlessness means He is able to love each and every one of us. He never experiences “Oops, missed that one.”
