We can always waste time talking about who has hurt us or what isn’t or doesn’t work for us. That same time that we are wasting can be used towards pressing on in life. Stop hating yourself for everything that you aren’t and don’t have. Start loving yourself where you are with what you have. Change your way of thinking. When you do, you change your way of living. Some of us are the walking dead. God didn’t intend for us to live that way. We must see ourselves as God sees us. Let’s humble ourselves to accept the Grace of God and give grace to ourselves when we feel that we just don’t measure up.. It is through His Grace that God heals us and brings freedom to take our lives back. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV).
