SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD HE CREATED HIM; MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM. ( GENESIS 1:27 *NIV )

Dear Friend,

We are indeed made in God’s image.  When you think about that it means, God has feelings and emotions just like we do.Now that means that God can experience anger just as we sometimes do.  Remember Noah’s Flood, as well as, Sodom & Gomorrah to just name two.  How about Jesus in the Temple  with the money changers, now that was righteous indignation indeed!

Then there is Love, who has more Love than our Heavenly Father; FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.  ( JOHN 3:16 )  AND WE KNOW AND RELY ON THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR US,  FOR GOD IS LOVE.  ( 1 JOHN 4:16 )

God also experiences sorrow, remember when Jesus went to raise Lazarus from the dead?  Is it not written that first; JESUS WEPT, ( JOHN 11:35 ) then He raised Lazarus from the dead!

So friend, when you think about God remember He is your Loving, Caring, Heavenly Father.  A Father who understands, and is always there for you no matter what.  One that you may always turn to with all of your troubles and sorrows, for He truly understands!

Therefore always tell God how much you love Him when you pray, and never be afraid to share anything with Him!  After all; THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU, HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE. HE WILL TAKE GREAT DELIGHT IN YOU, HE WILL QUIET YOU WITH HIS LOVE, HE WILL REJOICE OVER YOU WITH SINGING.   Amen.  ( ZEPHANIAH 3:17 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
