What if someone told you the past is forgiven, you don’t have to be perfect in order to be loved. Stop working and start accepting, because can’t earn what is given freely.
This is exactly what God gives us, a clean slate and a new beginning. This means no one can hold past things against you, it also means you can’t hold them against yourself.
Most often the barrier between self-worth and self-loathing isn’t their because others are treating us bad, yes that occurs. But more often it’s because we are struggling with forgiveness, we think we have earn what is given so freely.
With mental health issues on the rise, you must understand one thing, you are loved, you are forgiven and you are not alone.
I realize for some of us we take the statement you are not “alone” with a heavy grain of salt, in utter diabalef. Because we feel so distant from the truth, because we believe we are.
But if you continually bury your head in your past mistakes, you’ll never see what’s ahead and forgiveness won’t be embraced.
So the big question is, what do you see?
I pray it’s something different, and pray during these times of self isolation and quarantine’s. You start to see something new.
Much love, Shaun
