Love requires a recognition of God's truth to thrive and be genuine.
Would the best expression of love just be "Live and Let Live"?
I've realized that God no longer punishes you for your misdeeds immediately with fire and brimstone.
When you are alone, that's when you are forced to keep yourself company.
What does self-love look like? Are you in an abusive relationship with yourself?
I had to give myself permission to be loved.
I developed a crush on God because I never felt love like His before.
It's just like the enemy to turn a positive into a negative. He was able to make Eve focus on the only tree she was not supposed to eat from instead of all of the fruit she could partake in. We were no different. Instead of just celebrating the moment of my sister's engagement. I focused on the fact that my father wasn't there.
If we are ALL made in God's image, I have unlimited, wonderful, and peculiar creations just waiting to have life breathed into them.
