Sometimes, Lord, I feel as if I am a horrible person. I have done so much wrong in my life.

Today I’m going to:

Ask You Lord to see me as You do

That I will see the good in me as I reach for You

When we think about the past.. about the regrets that we have and the things we are so sorry for; when we think about the stupid choices that we’ve made and how much we’ve messed up, we can end up seeing ourselves as a horrible person. Stupid, worthless and ashamed of who we see ourselves as.

 

Yet, when God looks at us, He looks at us with eyes that see a pure child. God gives us the beauty of a “clean slate” when we put our trust, our faith and our life direction in His hands. God looks at us with the eyes of the best parent ever. Once you begin to grasp the greatness of His love for you, you will understand that whatever your views of yourself have been, the power of God’s love is more than able to recreate you from the moment that you begin your relationship with Him.
