For years I lived in fear because the God I was raised with had my guardian angel following me around to record my sins. God was Not a God of love and all my actions were motivated from fear. I tried to love him because if I didn’t i was disobedient. It has taken a lifetime to realize that He is a loving God and I hate to admit that I struggled with this perception. Now I understand how the truth sets you free and I thank God he preserved me through my ignorance, depression, guilt and shame.
