Have you ever felt alienated from, angry at, intimidated by, or otherwise disconnected from God? You are not alone. Countless people go through life feeling, among other things, that God doesn’t like them, but this book shares life-changing news: God really, really likes you, just the way you are – barefaced, unfiltered, unpolished, on your worst hair day ever.
In this book, the author shares her own struggles with misunderstanding God, beginning as a child. “I was a child who didn’t ask many questions. From bits and pieces of fundamental sermons and overheard conversations, my image of God was anything but loving. I pictured God as the enforcer, the disapprover, a bad Santa, ready to catch me doing something ‘bad.’” She kept a respectful distance from God for years. Learn what motivated her to finally accept God’s offer of grace, how simple it was to do and how fulfilling life is now that she knows God not only loves her, but likes her as well, and how God reveals Himself in the simplicity of everyday life.
So, no matter how raggedly, how despicable you are feeling, God likes you and loves you. He created you in His own image. You are not some randomly occurring experiment or some fatally flawed lump of humanity. You are not a victim of your circumstances, or of another’s bad decisions, or someone else’s selfish dreams. You are God’s creation, made for a divine purpose to walk through this life on a journey that goes beyond your wildest dreams. And the best part of all — God’s got your back every step of the way.
