Love Yourself By Letting God Love You
So as anybody who knows me knows I am not and have never been a morning person! So this morning in my sleepy endeavor to read my bible and continue with my New Years commitment, I was upset to find that my bible was not in its usual spot! Immediately my sleepy head was filled with thoughts of annoyance that I will probably not share on social media and I was immediately aware of my need to read the bible! Lol!
You see I believe the problem most people have when they have negative thoughts that don't line up with the bible is that they think well I guess I'm not cut out for this Christian thing! It's not in my nature! I've told myself that lie before but now I see things differently! Now my immediate reaction is that I REALLY NEED God more than I like to admit sometimes. My failures and inadequacies lead me to recognize my need for God instead of identifying with my negative thoughts.
It's not about determination to be a good Christian as it is recognizing that your need for God is just the same as everybody else's. We all have our own definition of right and wrong and as flawed human beings, we tend to judge some people as bad and others as good. But the bible says we have all fallen short of the Glory of God and not one of us is righteous. No not one! Our only hope for true righteousness comes from the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and our faith in his sacrifice!
