I don’t talk about my faith much.
I was raised in an environment that believed that religion should be forced upon others, but living it was another story.
I believe that faith should be lived day in and day out.
Words should not need to be spoken, but unbelievers should be able to witness God “something different in you” because how you love others.
I believe that there is no such thing as “unlovable”.
Are people challenging to deal with and are there evil people in this world? Absolutely.
Do I struggle in relationship with others at times?
Yes, seldom does a day go by that I am not rubbed wrong by someone or worse, I think awful things about another because of some crime they have committed.
At the end of that day though, as a Christian I am held to a higher standard…a standard of forgiveness.
I do not dismiss bad behavior committed against me or my family. I acknowledge and draw boundaries. If a crime has been committed then I am bound by law to report it. Forgiveness isn’t forgetting. Forgiveness is giving the pain back to God.
Forgiveness is recognizing that Christ died for that person as well.
Forgiveness is realizing the same grace that was given to me was given for the person who wronged me. Forgiveness is recognizing that grace covers all sins.
I am Flawless. It is how God views everyone…..Flawless through His Love.
This Song has really resonated in my heart this past month.
I am not sure why, but I know that it is speaking into something that my heart must be working through.
My Father has told me that I am Flawless and that I am precious to Him.
