“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” -Galatians 3:28
God can break every chain in your life. All it takes is 1) healing any shame you may feel and 2) having the ability to feel worthy. And, though those two things seem to be diametrically opposed, if you hear anything I’m saying, I want you to know this: Not only is shame not helping you, but even more importantly, you are worthy of love and belonging.
Please believe me, you are worthy. If the cross doesn’t teach us that, what else does it teach? God sent his only perfect Son to die for you and me so that we could be reconciled to heaven and become a part of God’s family. If the precious blood of Jesus Christ is not proof enough, I don’t know what is.
You really are worth love and belonging. It’s what the Lord wants for you.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, only through you can I feel true love and a deep sense of belonging. I may feel insecure in other relationships, but with you, I feel safe and secure. Amen.
REFLECTION: How does your relationship with God help you to feel secure?
