God Considers Me

What - posting two days in a row? I got inspired again today - don't get used to it! I was reading MckMama's blog - the post where her husband is answering questions from all her faithful readers. And this one question & answer really stood out to me.

If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be?

I would like to be able to consider myself the way God considers me.

Wow. From my upbringing I know that God considers me a person of worth and a person who could use some behavior modification (she says while eating her Lucky Charms). I mostly think of myself as a big putz who could use some common sense. Worth? Not so much. I work really hard to find my worth externally (comments on my blog - woot!), but I don't feel it inside. I don't think, "poor me." I think, "it's just me." But you know, God probably looks at me & feels love, affection, and quite a bit of exasperation. Hmm - perhaps I'm confusing God with Dr. M (let's just nip that right there in the bud sweetie!).

Anyway, I like the idea of cutting myself some slack.

God considers me.

Cool!

  1. Wow! That's thought provoking! It's important to ponder how God considers of us. He sees our accomplishments, our struggles, and He knows our hearts. Still, he encourages us to change but in the end He could never love us more than he does right now.
    Thanks Dana!

  2. My acupuncturist, if you told him this, would say, "What's stopping you from changing the way you see yourself right now?"

    There's always a reason to trip ourselves up. He's so smart.

  3. We all need to cut ourselves some slack. We need to at least have the same compassion for ourselves that we have for our friends.

  4. Everybody has worth and beauty that it is exclusive to them. God doesn't make complete junk after all :D
