Finding Comfort In My Skin

“The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.” – Mark Twain

I am grateful today for that ability, a feat I would’ve never achieved had I not received & began to truly understand God’s Great Love for me. And as crazy as it may sound to some of you, I didn’t get there for many years after becoming a Christian. I had “head” knowledge He loved me but no real “heart” knowledge of it.

This all because I spent most of my life believing the outright lie that I wasn’t enough to be really loved by anyone. Most of all God. I had seen & endured so many disappointments that I bought into what I thought was a fact – it must be me.

I admit at times now it still hisses in isolated incidences. And I have to remind myself for the umpteenth time Whose I am. And who I am as a result of that.

Lord, for anyone who finds themselves in this place right now, I ask that You open their eyes to the truth of Your Great Love for them. May they really understand & begin to believe more than anything how precious they are to You. And how all is not lost & good plans have been laid out just for them. Even before they were formed in their Mama’s womb.

In Jesus’ wonderful & promising name,

Amen.

Much more love y’all,

Bonnie ❤️
