God loves you in spite of your unbelief about Him. God still loves you even though you may not believe He's real. God loves you enough to send me (an ex-atheist) to let you know that He is real!
I use to be an atheist myself many years ago. I only believed in myself and thought life was based on being born into this evil world then dying. I use to go to church as a child and know about the God, but I never really imagine the stories in the Bible were real.
I become addicted to crack and got into trouble with law. My life went down hill, while in a lonely jail cell, I was at the lowest point or darkest hour of my life. I had no one to comfort me. I had lost all hope! I didn't feel I had any reason to continue living. I thought of ways of ending my life because I didn't want to endure any more hardships and failures.
But at my darkest hour, I received a visitor to my cell. The visitor came and gave me hope and encouraged me to continue forward. Believe it or not, the visitor was God! Yes, God came and visited me and gave me this message to share with you today---- God is Real!
