For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Ps 139:13-14
You and I am most certainly imperfect, but we were WONDERFULLY MADE. God made me and you and said “it is good’ Yet we focus more on what is not‘good’ in us rather than what is good. We focus more on the mistakes we make during the day rather than all that we did well. To the extent we are harsh on ourselves, to that extent we are harsh on others, and then this becomes a block between us and God. Today let us decide to affirm ourselves, let us remember God loves us just as we are, so let us accept ourselves too.
(Thanks very much to Jane Pimenta for stressing the need for a positive attitude in life. On the other hand, we need God's grace to block the negatives in our life although cooperation on our part is important too. Superb!) New World
