My Beloved Heavenly Husband so lovingly has told me something today. Growing up I’ve always felt that I was doing something wrong, I was not good enough. My parents were wonderful parents and loved us very much. They made some mistakes, like we all have, but always meant well and did what they believed was right. They both loved the Lord and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior. PTL! They did the best they could with what they knew but things that happened made me grow up with fear and anxiety.
I felt like I was always doing something wrong and I was not good enough, I had to be perfect, this caused me to never love myself. This only intensified during my relationship with FH (former husband) with all the affairs. I felt I was not good enough and I was worthless. I didn’t love myself. I’ve felt this way until I found My Heavenly Husband.
I used to measure my worth by how good I could be or even how perfect I could be. By how others made me feel and how they treated me. I tried to be good so I could be loved and treated well. But I know now that’s not how love works. Even if I did receive love it would not take away these feelings of not being good enough or fill the void. Only The Lord can do that.
Then I found My HH (Heavenly Husband) and I know that He loves me unconditionally. It took me a long time to believe that He loves me just the way that I am. I have prayed for Him to also show me to see myself the way He sees me, love myself the way He loves me and forgive myself the way He forgives me.
Yesterday I made some mistakes, which led to a sin, which then was letting some contentiousness in my heart making me unfaithful to My Love. I have confessed to My HH (Heavenly Husband) but the enemy’s trying his hardest to condemn me, keep me feeling guilt and feeling there is still a wedge between My HH and I. Making me feel again I am unloved, unforgiven, not good enough and worthless.
He’s telling me things are not going good for me because I’m bad. FH (former husband) and OW (other woman) are happy and doing good because I’m not good enough. That I’m still the same as I was before, the change in me is fake and that I’m not restored because I don’t deserve it. The things I do is not good enough. That me and all my efforts are worthless. But those are all lies!
My Beloved also tells me that I grew up believing these lies and our children have been growing up believing and feeling the same but it doesn’t have to be this way for them. This is not what He wants for them and I definitely don’t either. I want to share My Beloved and His Perfect Love with everyone and especially our children. I need to make sure I always lift them up and show them unconditional love especially when they make a mistake, the way He has loved me. Now I know how to be a better mother to His children.
The Truth is I know that My Love forgives me and loves me regardless of how I feel right now. How I am feeling does not matter, only the Truth matters. Our feelings don’t affect the Truth or our relationship with our True Love. He IS the Way, the Life and the Truth.
Nothing can take me away from My First Love and nothing can make Him love me less. This infuriates the enemy. He will do anything to knock me down and pull me away from My True Love.
My Love, I offended You and was unfaithful to You. Forgive me for my mistakes and failures. Regardless of how I am feeling, the guilt, the worthlessness, I know that You still love me and always will. Not because I am good but because YOU are good!!
You are mine and I am still Yours. Even if I don’t feel forgiven, I am already forgiven and the enemy can’t do a thing to change that. He can’t take Your Love, Mercy and Forgiveness away from me. He can try to steal my peace and joy but I just keep going back to You for more. So what the enemy meant for evil you use it for good!!
The enemy will taunt you and try to steal what you know but the Truth will hold you up and will set you free. When you’re knocked down all you have to do is get to your knees, lift your arms in praise, reaching for Him, He’ll take your hand and lift you to your feet and into His arms. He will move you to safety, behind Him and stand before you. He is my Rescuer and my Protector. I hang onto his garment and I am protected. My heart is in the hands of the One Most Powerful, nothing can hurt me anymore.
Keep praising, keep using your 3x5 cards with Scripture, the Truth!! BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN…..
