How do you know?

I don't have time at the moment to answer the question or respond to the email that asked it. I'm about to run out the door, so I'll have to answer when I have ample time to do so, for this isn't a question (or is it?) that can be quickly answered in a few seconds.

But the question already has me pondering. And though "I know".... how "I know" doesn't seem easily answered or quickly done so. I am wondering if words will hold it? Can I share the knowing in mere words spoken and said or written to another?

The question?

Sharon, regarding the sermon on Sunday, I don't doubt the virgin birth. I can't tell you why, but I've always believed. I never gave it a thought not to. When I first read the Bible and still to this day I never questioned it or all the events (parting the red sea etc) that happened. I just believed the Bible. I have no clue why but I always have. What comes hard for me is, believing God loves me. Yet I know he does from all the things that have happen in my life, how he has been there and kept me safe and yet I am scared of God. I know my sins and do not understand why he loves me. Confused? When you have time I would really like to know how you know God loves you.

Woe! How do I know? How do you know? .... How do I go about answering it?
