Loving Yourself Through God’s Eyes


Loving Yourself Through God’s Eyes

There are times when no matter how hard we try, we feel unable to love ourselves. In such times, we feel its so much easier to love other people. After all, they’re not with us 24 hours in a day We don’t see all their weaknesses. We don’t have to live with their regrets. And we’re not the ones who have to carry their hurts.

In such times, we feel overwhelmed. We don’t have enough strength to accept this person we see in the mirror everyday.

We don’t have enough love to love her. We don’t have enough strength to uplift her when she couldn’t believe in herself anymore.

During such times, I’ve known of a way to help you continue improving your relationship with yourself. And that way is to see yourself through God’s own eyes.

In God’s eyes, there is no judgment, there is only acceptance. In God’s eyes, there is no pain too hard to bear nor weaknesses too weak to be overcome by His insurmountable strength.

God can embrace us wholeheartedly, opening us up yet sustaining us and healing us at the same time. God sees all our potentials. God sees our light when all that we can see are our shadows.

God sees this person who falls but who has the power to get up again and again. God sees this person who gets hurt but does not become hard or bitter, only softer, more resilient to change.

God sees you. God cherishes you. God’s eyes love you more than anyone could ever love you as you really are.

    I love this post. It is so true. How many times have I heard friends put themselves down, and I want to tell them they are special. And I’m not immune to this, but I am light years from what I used to be.

     This is a excellent article. I sent it out to my gospel aerobics class and to others to encourage them to take the time to take care themselves. God bless you, Carla-gospelaerobicsministry@yahoo.com

    Well this article has helped me because it is talking about me. I struggle so hard to love myself and I don’t know why. Yes I have some deep wounds that need healing emotional wounds I suffered in my past and present from rejection of family and friends and neighbors and insults and mean spirited people but today I am learning to lean on Yah and changing my mind set along with prayer and spending time in the word. I really don’t have anybody and I don’t have a church home but I will start visiting one up the block from me this week. Everytime the thought I am nothing comes into mind, I change that thought and say I am wonderfully and beautifully made and I stick to it no matter what BUT the love still isn’t there yet. Pray for me so that I can see myself as God sees me.
