Dose God care about me ? To be honest it feels like he dose not it feels like God only cares about the people who are physiclly ill. I have friends who's sick and whenever we go to a concert or youth group together she always gets prayed over an told she's loved (and i really do love her) . Then look on the sideline and there's me who has A LOT of things going on right now but none seems to notice the feeling of love and hope for me is lost I want to read the Bible but I can't seem to open it up. I'm afraid if i do I'll be told I'm being to selfish. so am I? I'm to selfish? Dose God love me even though there's nothing wrong with my body

    Friend,
    There is nothing selfish about wanting to feel loved. God put that in you to draw you close to Him. I encourage you to give it a shot and open the bible and see where the Spirit leads you. He does love you! He cares about you and loves you so much that He went to the cross. He did that for you. I am praying for Jesus to wrap His mighty arms around you and to open the eyes of your heart that you might know how wide, how deep, how high His love for you is. Praying for you!

    God loves you unconditionally!! He thinks about you more than you could imagine! Open up the Bible; what could be bad about it? He cares for you so much!

    Hi, this is Allison here from A Girl Like Me,

    I hate that others have made you feel this way :(. Let me tell you something.... people are sinful and broken. That shouldn't surprise you, but people naturally care more about themselves than they do others. I say this to tell you to not base your understanding of God just from what others tell you or from what you observe from others. Even though community with other believers is amazing, you need to surround yourself with people who love you for you. Those are the people who truly understand who God is. Our lives are not about us. They are about loving others and loving God. Find people who love others and love God. Those are the people you can trust.

    Also, I want to encourage you to read Psalm 139 today. He wrote this for you. This is true for all his sons and daughters. Read this and put your name in the place of "I". Read it out loud. And ask God to show you how much he loves YOU! Because he does. The Bible is full of this truth for you :) Dive into it! Thanks for being open and vulnerable with us!!! We hope this community series is encouraging for you.
