20 Psalms On God’s Love
Friend, it is easy to think God doesn’t love us. In fact, there have been several times in my life specifically I’ve wondered if God really cared. The first was when I was a new mom. My path to motherhood was pretty smooth, but after delivering our son via c-section (which I hated), I had trouble nursing and suddenly my body and mind were not the same. I battled postpartum depression and anxiety, but I didn’t even know it at the time. My entire life I had been in control and suddenly God had shown me that indeed I was not in control. I questioned God’s love for me.
During my pregnancy with my third child I struggled with extreme anxiety and depression due to the hormones. There were nights I was awake all night, crying and clinging to my husband in desperation. There was no reason to feel this way – but depression doesn’t need a reason. Friend, I doubted God’s love for me in those moments. I doubted everything and especially His love for me because let’s be honest, how could a good God allow such suffering?
The next time was when we adopted our daughter. I recently shared about it here. God had to break me apart to put me back together again. I had never experienced such heartache before, and in those deepest, darkest days of putting one front of the other I really did wonder if God loved me. How could God do this, again, to me?
Each of those times I doubted it wasn’t because of God or His plan – it was because of my heart and my focus. I had started looking outward (and inward) to discover if God loved me. The way we measure God’s love isn’t done with how life moves around us (or in us).
We measure God’s love with the Word of God. the Bible is the only source of truth, so in the Word we find hope! We can see God’s love all throughout scripture, but I especially love the psalms. We can’t possibly look at every psalm that mentions God’s love (that is over 100!!) But I found 20 that I love. So I created this free printable of 20 Psalms on God’s love. You will see that I focused on 10 things God’s steadfast love is for us. I pray this is a blessing to your heart.
