Today belongs to love. Let me not fear.
Father, today I can think of all kinds of things to be afraid of. I can think of all kinds of “sins” and mistakes to feel guilty about. And certainly, there are all kinds of people out there who would gladly help me to do so.
Father, a little while ago I asked You to show me all of the things that You appreciated about me. I think that this was the first time I asked You how You see me in contrast to the way that I see myself. I was surprised at your responses. The little inspirations that came from You reminded me of the little moments of love, the little moments of choices that I made to extend my love to others in quiet ways. These little gifts of love that I gave to others, I overlooked as inconsequential and insignificant. But You helped me to see that these were little golden nuggets of investments that were going to pay off big dividends in love and joy later. I could not see this big picture but You could. But because I asked, You shared it with me so that I could see more truly as You do. This helped me to feel better about myself. Thank you. I am grateful that I took a few moments to ask and receive how You saw me.
