We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
Wow! I needed to hear that today!
Thank you so much for the reminder that God loves me for who I am and not for what I do! Because I am ashamed of some of the things that I do and they make me feel such guilt. I really appreciate your post and need to keep in mind that I am a child of God and he loves me unconditionally!
Thank you for the encouraging words…they spoke to my heart and reminded me that His love is unconditional. Just what I needed to start my day.
I, too, needed to have today’s message. I have a family that has judged me so unfairly and will not even let me see my grandchildren that I love so dearly. It doesn’t matter what they say or feel, I do know God loves me as I am and forgives me. Thanks be to God! Alleluia!
I have struggled with the “doing” part many times in my life. It’s such a hard concept to learn because by the world’s standards we always have to perform. God says “Just because you are, I love you”. There’s nothing we can do to earn His favour. He’s done it all, we just accept it. Hard for us performance driven people to grasp.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
