“We have to look at ourselves through the mirror of Christ.” “If we don’t look at ourselves through His reflection, we will never understand our worth.” Karen Jantzi
What started the road of healing for me? The moment I understood, “Jesus loved me!” Unwanted, abused, alone but JESUS LOVED ME! He wanted me!
“So that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith. And I pray that you, being ROOTED and ESTABLISHED in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to GRASP how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to KNOW THIS LOVE that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19
As I accepted the love of Christ, I started a journey to gain confidence, deliverance, and life. Sadly, so many people understand the Gospel message but they never encountered the love of God. It’s only we truly understand the love of God; we will not allow others to steal our worth. Do you understand you are worthy of God’s love? You are a precious treasure, you are gold! If don’t believe you are gold or of great worth; you will allow others to tarnish your life or rob you of your beauty.
God's love is secure; it can be trusted. Yet, if we don't rest in His love, we will never have peace, confidence, and joy. At the cross Christ not only fulfilled the Father's mission; He displayed HIS HEART! YOU ARE WORTHY OF TRUE LOVE!
All of those chips, cracks, and broken pieces can be healed to restore your image. Jesus Christ came to heal the broken hearted and to bind up their wounds. (Isaiah 61:1-3) All of the broken pieces don’t have to ruin your life, there is healing in the love of Jesus Christ. It’s only when we allow Christ’s love to heal, we can be made whole. It isn’t an impossible! Your life can be changed if you allow His love to change you. Understand healing begins the moment you GRASP His love personally but the journey will take time. The past wounds have to be dwelt with or those wounds will turn into swords to destroy your future.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love doesn't delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.~ I Corinthians 13:4-8
