"Define yourself radically as one beloved by God. This is the true self. Every other identity is illusion." ~Brennan Manning
I want to tell you something. I want you to know that if anyone's actions have ever made you feel that something is lacking in you, it is not a reflection of you. It is not your true mirror, for if you look into it and see yourself as someone who is not lovable or worthy of love, or a failure, or anything less than amazing, then the image you are seeing is distorted and not a true reflection of your real self.
Feelings of not being worthy of love... that there is something lacking... that you must do something to earn worth and love... they are lies. If someone has not had the love of God in their hearts toward you, the words that their actions spoke to you cannot be true. Please do not believe them. No word or deed can ever change the true reflection of you, which is the one in God's mirror. He gave everything in order to get you back, set you free, know you. No price was too great. Not even death. Think of what that says about you; about your value, your pricelessness! You were and are worth it.
