He Loves Me! He Loves Me Not!
So, what is it that a daisy petal really has to do with romantic love? Nothing, of course! Just a child’s game…he/she loves me…he/she loves me not. Imagine the security of a relationship hanging on something so fragile…so whimsical…as the number of petals on a flower. But don’t you think the child’s game has become a metaphor for the way so many view their relationship with God?
Are we the beloved or the unloved? What is the evidence for either? Is it on again/off again with us and God? And can we ever know with any kind of certainty? Do we have to know? Do we need to know? What reasons can you put forward for the titanic struggle so many of us have with this?
So…I was just wondering…how are you feeling today? Do you believe and feel yourself to be secure in His love and in His grip? What are your reasons for answering yes? Why would you say no? What is it that really tips the scales for you on this vital subject?
Maybe you don’t have the strength to weigh in on this right now. That’s okay. That’s where you are presently. Keep checking back in…read what some others might say here. It could perhaps help. It might prove a blessing to you. And when you’re able…give us a word or two, okay?
When considering God’s view of you, how does your daisy petal count come out?
