Finding Me Again

I have been really down on myself a lot lately. In fact, it has gotten to the point that I just couldn't stand to be in the room with "me" anymore.

This weekend, that all changed. God spoke to my heart in the wee hours of the morning as I sat reading His word, and my whole view of who I am completely changed. I found myself excited again about being God's child. I found myself looking forward to all that He has for me in my life. It was just a major transformation.

It just amazes me how God will pull you away from all the things in your life that are distracting you so that He can get you to focus on what He wants you to see and hear.

I am glad that I had my listening ears on this weekend. Here is what I heard:

~I love you daughter...LOVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY.

~I think you are beautiful...LOOK AT YOURSELF THROUGH MY EYES.


~I know you by name. . .YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MINE.

So what is God saying to you today? Listen with your heart first. Your heart is where God's love will bloom and grow.

It is great what God can reveal to us when we are out from under the daily-ness of life.
Glad you had your listening ears on. He told you...reminded you of things that we, your friends, already know about you!
Much love, blessings and God's revealing love to ya!

God has to remind me of who I am in Him too. What a blessing it would be to live in that every moment: no need to worry about what others think, no needless stress about not measuring up.

Enjoy that sweet message from God and just keep walking in it.

Wonderful reminder. I struggle with that a lot. The negative self-talk was better for a time, but seems to have crept back in again. Thank you for sharing!
