This week we have been discussing God’s unconditional love. Not only does He love us unconditional but He requires that we also love ourselves unconditionally.
I shared on the Morning Prayer Call how I had been loving myself conditionally believing in error that flawless skin would would make be better, and more acceptable. Thankfully by exposing that error in my thinking with you this week, I was delivered. I even said a prayer to God asking Him to forgive me for not being grateful for me, just the way He made me.
The word says in Reveleations 12:11, “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” After my confession I felt free and that a burden had been lifted. Now my heart truly knows that I am acceptable to God just the way I am. And that truth has allowed me to accept myself. Amazing, right?!
So the question of the week is:
“What ‘flaw’ or ‘flaws’ are you willing to accept now that you know (in your heart) that God loves you unconditionally?”
BTW. Remember I told you about the “unconditional love chili?” Well I asked Chef Jewel to email me what she said to me that day I purchased the chili, “The soup was infused with unconditional love. Unconditional love for yourself knowing that exactly as you are and exactly as you are not, — your strengths as well as your “flaws”– that you are enough, that you are perfect, that by fully accepting & embracing yourself as you are, you transform the world by giving others permission to be themselves fully expressed.”
