I love being misunderstood, judged, and accused…said no one ever.
Note to my friends:
I did mess up. I was wrong. Some things were just poor judgement and others flat out sin! (See my recent blog post Foot In Mouth.)
When this happens, when I mess up or sin, I feel worthless.
But I am not.
Yes, I must take action when I mess up or sin. I must apologize, own up to my errors, repent of my sin, and move on in the forgiveness afforded me in Christ, knowing I am a child of the King.
Today I am reminding myself that I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
God loved me and gave himself for me. He loves me and that must be enough.
If others see me as worthless, He sees me as precious.
If others accuse, He sees me a righteous because of Jesus.
If others judge me, He sees me as His child.
If others think me unworthy of love, kindness, and grace, He lavishes me with loving kindness and unending mercy and grace.
He loves me and is conforming me to His image.
I may be feeling rejected, judged, misunderstood, and worthless but my feelings lie. Even when people reject me, judge me, misunderstand me, and consider me worthless, God does not.
God’s Word is true.
So I’m going to spend time in the Word to remind myself of truth because today circumstances are causing me feel all kinds of ugly and broken.
