Steven Curtis Chapman's moving story of pain and forgiveness is featured in our latest issue. Here, Steven shares how he learned to love God in his darkest moments
“Loving God doesn’t have to be perfect—it’s most precious when it just pours from a wounded heart,” Steven says. “For example, in the Bible David says, ‘God, you forgot me. I’m alone and hopeless. How long are you going to leave me here?’ But then he takes a breath and says, ‘Lord I trust You. My hope is in You. Your Love is never ending.’ For me, that vulnerability and honesty is what a relationship with God really is.”
