“Never confuse your perception of yourself with the mystery that you really are accepted.”
The mystery of true acceptance is that God welcomes us, and embraces who we are – mess and all. He embraces our flaws – no wait, He goes one step further and COVERS our flaws with the blood of Jesus. He transforms us day by day to become the best version we can be, transformed by love, transformed by His peace, transformed by trust.
We can be real, authentic, ourselves. Because this is who God has made us to be.
We are crafted by God.
The price paid for us was the precious blood of Jesus.
Live in that reality.
