“We unwittingly project onto God our own attitudes and feelings toward ourselves… But we cannot assume that He feels about us the way we feel about ourselves — unless we love ourselves compassionately, intensely, and freely. ” ~ Brennan Manning
If only we could all get this – REALLY get it.
So many heartbreaks & trials, darkness & loneliness could be avoided. So, so many.
Our scratching, gnashing & clawing away to feel loved, to feel like we belong leads many of us down roads we ought never go. But we do. And God is with us. Always.
We are so loved.
I am preaching to myself this morning.
