Dude, did I mention this year rocks?
I’ve been tryin’ to give myself a break & it’s totally liberating.
Funny how the Lord can fix everything, huh?
For me the journey is slow & not-so-steady, line upon line syle. I make so many mistakes & let fear so easily beset me.
The atonement fixes all of that, everyday.
It’s completely amazing.
For the first time seriously in. my. life, I am finally finding no reason to compare myself to others. There’s no point! God has helped me see that in a different light the past few weeks, and I am so thankful.
We are all beautifully unique. Born with varied circumstances, qualities, bodies, families, talents, struggles and gifts.
I believe that before we came here, we accepted different life-fulls of challenges to meet, burdens to carry, and crap to endure. I think we wanted to come to this earth, like, really bad. And God has given us a perfect plan to help us succeed.
Heavenly Father loves ALL his children the same. You, me, everyone.
There’s no standard you have to reach for his love. No mold you have to fit into perfectly. No bread making contest you have to win. No craft project that you have to make the cutest. No english paper you have to spell everything correctly on. [Thank heaven for that one.] No goal you have to meet at work. No size of jeans you have to fit into. No degree you have to have framed on your wall.
He just really loves us all the same.
And because he loves us so much, we can trust him completely.
“Look unto me in every thought, doubt not, fear not.”
I’m finding that’s the most powerful tool in the shed these days. I’m not very good at usin’ it yet, but I’m striving to really do that….look unto Him in every. thought. doubt not. fear not.
His mercy is real, guys. I know it ‘cause I feel it. And I’ll share it because it is what makes me happy & keeps me sane.
Without him I am a little crazy,
but with him I feel truly loved, creative, whole, healed and calm.
