Today will you join me? Will you give yourself permission to…
embrace your perfect imperfections. No one, not one person on this earth is perfect. Only Jesus.
embrace His perfection.
embrace that when you love God, when you release yourself to Him as your King of Kings and Savior, you are perfect.
embrace the little flaws on your body. For these little flaws are oh so minute in the eyes of your Creator. When you are LIVING OUT! the Kingship of Christ you are made new. He sees only your goodness. That goodness enables you to go through the day forgiving yourself for your imperfections, your mistakes, your–dare I say it—sin.
He forgives you first so why don’t you forgive yourself?
He already gave you permission.
Be who your Creator created you to be!
I want to share a great question that our friend Meg asked me regarding a study question I posed on Monday. Such an insightful question. Here is her question and here is my response.
Stress Point Week 3 Study Question: Is it hard for you to imagine yourself as part of the “good” creation that God proclaimed when “He said It is Good?” Sometimes this is hard for me to declare over myself. To declare that I, too, am His beautiful creation. Thoughts?
Meg’s response and question
Yes This is hard for me to declare overmyself.. because i say me Good? But i am a sinner? But we are all sinners… yet God calls us Good? When i read the passage where is says he looked over all that he had made and it was very good i think of the animals and flowers and landscape, mammels etc.. How can they sin? they cant right?
So for me I have to say that How can Good call me Good when i am a sinner?
My response to her
I believe that when we are IN CHRIST, saved by the blood that Jesus shed on the cross and we make the declaration that HE is our KING, God really does see us as good. I also see it as Him looking at us as a doting Father, adoring His own creation. When we are washed clean by the blood of Jesus and we declare Him as our savior, He no longer sees our sin.
