I am first-loved by God, this is a given. And enormously...given. But self-love takes what He has given (LOVE)... and allows it to be alive on the inside. It is faith, reception. It turns the channel on. Learning to accept and be astounded by Love's light within us and how it shines its way through us in brilliant uniqueness is...agreement. Full agreement with God's design.
I'm making peace with myself today. I have made hearty agreements on so many levels with so many things that are just simply not true. Life gets too fast and I easily become oblivious to the many ways that these beliefs are affecting my days... and to the continual multiplication of bad effect. Placing trust in the lies is just as real by experience as having great faith in what is true.
I'm taking a new approach. I will choose to believe the Good News about me. Even when I don't. To believe that I am worth it. And worth it with a purpose. The Son of God's expensive death and life-altering display of Goodness and Uprising means that I matter. And my confidence in this very thing is the hand that writes the story of my whole life.
