Today I am grateful that we get to celebrate Christmas. I am thankful that we celebrate the birth of my saviour who came to love me as I am and saved me from my sins. I love that I am His and He is mine. I am grateful that He came to dwell amongst us sinners so that we can get a chance at Grace.
I was reflecting today, as one would do if they spend Family day alone and they have no one to talk to. Growing up i have continuously been sidelined and even adult me still thinks I have failed to make people love me. I have had a rebellious stage and i have had epiphanies. However one thing has remained and has grounded me, that is God’s love for me.
I remember one time after i had done something so bad to myself and i was drowning in self loathing, self hate, condemnation and guilt. I couldn’t look myself in the mirror. I remember coming across the song “Your love never fails” by Jesus Culture. I remember bursting into tears. I felt great pain at hearing the words ” nothing can separate me from Your Love” I remember crying so hard until i was emotionally spent i couldn’t believe there was such a verse in the Holy Scriptures.
I could not believe that God will still love me nomatter what I had done. I felt a peace and a strength forming inside of me and I knew God had forgiven me. I asked for forgiveness for not loving myself even when God loves me so much that He came to dwell amongst us, couldn’t have been easy. His love remains the same.
For God’s love and amazing grace, I will forever be grateful and feel like i belong. I feel like someone out there cares for me. This is because He knows everything about me and yet the Holy Bibles says that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…
I am so happy to celebrate Christmas today… I celebrate Love that never fails and that is never ending. Love that is patient and endures all things. I celebrate love that is not selfish and love that endures forever and ever!!!!
Merry Christmas to you all!!!
Here we call it Family Day, so Happy Family day to all who celebrate that as well.💋💋💋🤗🤗💜💜💜💜✌
