I used to think that people that went to church had "perfect" lives... It felt that these people could never relate to the mess of a life that I was living because my circumstances were far from "perfect". What I didn't understand is how broken many of these church going people where on the inside no matter how put together they looked liked on the outside. For others, it was a time to fellowship and be spiritually led by the Pastor.
What I've found are most Christian's that are at church aren't there because they had it "all together" but rather because they were constantly dependent on God to see them through own trials and tribulations.
God, the Father is passionately pursuing us even if we don't realize it or want him to. How do I know? My children remind me daily. As their father I'll ALWAYS stand by their side no matter what they do, what they say or where they go. And my love for my child pails in comparison to the LOVE our Father in Heaven has for each one of us.
If you haven't connected with God because "your not religious" or "you don't need to believe in God to be a good person" or "your just not ready yet" just stop, open your heart and turn your face to God. He's been there the whole time waiting... Like a father that is watching after his toddler run around a busy playground, following their every step- HE'S RIGHT THERE.
If your in the Torrance area and haven't found a church to go to, come see how God speaks through our pastor who has an intimate relationship with the word. Don't have anyone to go with and don't want to go alone? Let me know and you can join us 🙏🏼👊🏼🙌🏻
