As a pastor’s wife and a part of the pastoral team I’m very aware of people’s needs.
God helps me to sense the broken hearted in our midst.
In my heart I want everyone in our church, or those visiting, to feel loved and cared for.
I want them to know that they are significant, important, special.
I’m also very aware that sometimes people walk out our doors and don’t feel that way.
We are finite and aren’t able to get to speak to every individual, to look them in the eye and let them know we care.
It always grieves my heart when someone feels that they’ve slipped through the cracks and gone unnoticed.
I feel the same way about this blog.
I wish I could look every follower, every reader, every commenter in the eye and say, “you matter”.
The only way I know to do this is to respond to comments and get around to other’s blogs the best that I’m able.
However, the reality is that some days, even weeks, are too busy, and while every comment is read and appreciated, while I have every intention to comment back, sometimes I just get so far behind that I know I’ll never catch up.
I wish blogger had a “respond to all comments” button, so I could make sure everyone sees this.
Sometimes I sense your broken hearts, your loneliness. If I could, I’d look you in the eye and say I care, but even better, God cares.
You are God’s favorite.
He smiles when He thinks of You.
He has a plan for you.
Don’t give up.
You are loved.
