Loving Yourself And The Unlovable
Do you feel unlovely today? Unlovable? Do you know that when you are at your worst, you are the most lovely?
Father said His strength was made perfect in our weakness.
If we were all exactly like Him right now, all mini gods with perfect speech, perfect hair, sculpted bodies and high IQ's, we'd be the most boring people in the universe!
I think God looks down to the earth and sees little ones who cry and falter, and His heart is pricked to lift us up like a small bird with a wounded wing.
He knows His own beauty and perfection, and sees us, individual and flawed, and that's what makes us so beautiful to Him. We're works in progress. We're His idea and expression. He made us, maybe trillions of us over the history of earth, and so that each of us wouldn't be all the same, He gave us each a small twist, so there'd be an infinite variety of His beloveds. Each one unique and wrapped in His love.
I've heard that in Heaven there are more colors than on earth. More variations of everything! Remember the first time you saw a skein of yarn that was variegated? (Changed colors along the thread line). It was fascinating to me!
The jewels at the Walmart counter (real or fake), are more beautiful when there is something different that sets one apart from the other. The depth of the sparkle inside, the colors it reflects.
Oh how I long to see those colors in heaven, and to be able to really SEE into the gemstones and investigate their cuts and quirks.
So when we go through our temper tantrums and our sins, and we move closer to God and seek to perfect ourselves to be like Him, we add depth to our character. More wisdom, more love, more forgiving, so that when someone looks deep into us, they see our history, our pain, our success and our progress. God can see so much better than we can, that we're absolutely lovely and moving ahead as we should be.
All we need do is stop focusing on ourselves. Stop looking INSIDE of us, because what we need is coming from HIM. Look to HIM. Determine to look at each other in a new way. Instead of always seeing the faults of your family member or coworker, etc., look for what makes them special!
See if you can discover what God loves about them, even when they are so mean and horrible that no one can stand to be near them.
I know a few people like that, who have been so cruel to others I wonder why they haven't been struck by lightning! But then I know why. God sees the WHY of their cruelty and the POSSIBLE person they can become. They need love and healing.
There may only be a tiny spark of something left in that mean person to love, but there IS SOMETHING, if we look for it. And if we can't see it, claim it by the fact that Jesus died for them too. God counted them worthy and valuable. Just as He does you. No matter what you do, or have done.
No matter how poor you are, or how bad you've screwed up. No matter if you have leprosy and your skin is falling off. You're LOVED! You're WORTHY! You are worthy of being loved by each of us!
I've been hammered like a steel drum, each dent placed in the perfect spot to produce the clearest, most delightful sound when struck.
Lord help me to love and to "ring" with truth and adoration. Let my existence glorify you with every word and every deed. All praise to Jesus!
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
