The path of Love for self is the smoothest when The Potter of Grace has prepared it!
The Potter made you Exactly as you are for this Exact moment and time And if you Trust Him Alone for your righteousness, Total Peace in who and what you are is possible.
“But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” – Romans 3:21-24
As The Goodness of God Is grasped and grows in us, a natural side effect is Healthy Love and Acceptance for ourselves and others. Healthy self love is a growth process that is directly correlated to your willingness to accept and live in The Light of His Grace because:
1)Grace makes All things new! Past forgiven, present not under the law and Always in The Fathers Loving arms with Nothing that can separate you!
2)Grace shows us a glimmer of The Light of His Love for us! While His Love for us is Much more expansive than we can fathom in human form, Grace begins to shine that Love to us and Love reflects love, in other words because He Loves us we can grow to love us!
3)Grace lines up The Greatest Power in the Universe on our side! God not only Loves us, He Likes us, just as we are and Not as we should be!
For a really good book on this, I suggest “Abbas child” by Brennan Manning as well as another book by the same author called, “The Ragamuffin Gospel” in addition the link below is a Great place to examine The Journey:
