It’s sad, but often true. You hear, ‘You’re no good’ until you believe, ‘I’m no good’. And, before you know it, you expect to get the short end of the stick every single time. But, while life may be hard, you still need to grapple with a very basic question, “What kind of person am I going to be?” The best answer is not one you come up with, it’s the one God gives you. God tells you that you are so loved it’s as if you were the only person ever born. God tells you that you have a unique purpose in life. God tells you that you can stake your life on God’s take-the-initiative, it-doesn’t-matter-what’s-going-on, never-give-up and eternal love. Sure, it’s sometimes hard to believe this is who you really are. But it’s the truth. So you might as well get used to it.
