Many people do not seem to know each other very well. In the breakups of everything from childhood friendships to marriages, the reason for the demise often cited is some version of, “He just doesn’t know the real me” or “She doesn’t understand me, and I don’t think she really wants to.” But there is One who knows us, ~ far better than we are known by others, and even far better than we know ourselves ~ even the things we know about ourselves but don’t like. God knows and accepts us. God never arrives and never leaves. God is always for us and with us. God has our back. God is a very real and present source of help in all our joys and sorrows before the cradle and after the grave.
