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.
