Ephesians 4: 7 New International Version (NIV)
“But to each one of us grace has been as Christ apportioned it.”
It is so hard, when it is so easy to constantly put yourself down. You feel as though you don’t deserve the amazing grace, mercy, love and forgiveness of our Heavenly Father. But, you have to remember; yes, you do. You do because He says you do. He sent his ONLY begotten Son to die on the cross for YOUR sins.
The God of the entire universe did this for you, for me, for ALL of his children. It is so easy to not feel worthy and to let terrible thoughts run through your mind. It is so easy to repeat to yourself the lies that the world has told you. It is so easy to crawl inside of your shell and hide away. But, if God Himself can love you enough to help you emerge from your shell… if He loves you enough to send His ONLY Son for you… who are you to decide that you are unworthy?
Ephesians 2: 8-9 New International Version (NIV)
“8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Learn to forgive yourself as He has. Learn to love yourself as He does. Do not let the Devil steal your peace, joy and the love that your LORD God is offering you so freely. Do not let the opinions of people here on Earth keep you from that. God will put the right people in your life at the right time and they will love and forgive you with the love of their Heavenly Father. Try not to be so hard on yourself and give yourself some grace, time to learn and time to grow.
In Jesus’ Name
