Just What I Needed to Hear Today

Why Does Heavenly Father Love Us?

"Think of the purest, most all-consuming love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount—that is the measure of God’s love for you.
God does not look on the outward appearance. I believe that He doesn’t care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely.
He loves us because He is filled with an infinite measure of holy, pure, and indescribable love. We are important to God not because of our résumé but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God’s love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked.
What this means is that, regardless of our current state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us."


Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “The Love of God,” Ensign, Nov 2009, 21–24

Aimiee,

I just found out last week that I have been having panic attacks. I have started two different medicines. The one medicine will take a few days to work but I still kinda yucky:)

I am so thankful that God brought me to your blog I don't feel as alone.

Right now I am dealing with wide open places but I have been going even when I feel an panic attack coming on.

I go to a large church and it has been the hardest for me...I go even though I feel sick almost the entire time:(

Please keep me in prayer..I will be praying for you:)

Sometimes, when I'm really stressed I forget about God and how much He loves me. But in fact, my faith has been the greatest gift in coping with panic attacks.
This post was just what I needed today. Thank you! :-)

I woke up around two in the morning just having awful dreams. I deal with anxiety everyday on a regular basis. It has become part of my life. Some days are better than others, but knowing that other people are dealing with some of the same issues is comforting. We can stay strong together.

I just would like to hear others stories from day to day life, because I understand every circumstance is different, but it helps to hear about any similarities, so the next time any of us feel trapped within our own entity. We will no its just the anxiety and that we will be OK.

I agree with Jill, God has blessed me. He has helped me so much with anxiety, and it is just a tribulation in my life that will pass, and I think of it as a blessing that will make me stronger in the end.
