Do you believe God's love is sometimes fickle or determined by our behavior? Jacobsen reassures seekers and insecure Christians that God's relentless grace is based on who we are---his beloved creation---not what we do. Learn how to live consciously and confidently in the Father's ever-present love! Includes questions for reflection and discussion. 208 pages, softcover from Windblown.
So many Christians believe God's love is fickle: when they sin, He turns away in disgust and anger. They vacillate between "He loves me" and "He loves me not" because of their behavior. That reasoning, writes Wayne Jacobsen, is as flawed as pulling petals from a daisy. Rather God's love is sturdy, enduring, and undisturbed by people's failings because God loves humankind not for what they do--but who they are. They are God's beloved creation.
Startlingly honest and empathetically written, HE LOVES ME! reveals the facts of God's relentless grace. Readers will learn how to live consciously, confidently in this love all the time. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion help make these truths practical and life-changing. Insecure Christians ready for a revolutionary relationship with God will find out just how accessible that is.

"For those of us who are longing to 'live loved,' I cannot recommend a better follow-up to The Shack than this book. It is an exploration and adventure into the heart of the God we hoped was truly there, and who loves each of us in particular with an everlasting love."Wm. Paul Young, Author of The Shack
