Your soul is bruised and covered with scars from being wounded. Some of these have come from people you care about, others from terrible mistakes you have made and still others from life just happening. After being the recipient of these sorts of things long enough, it can be awfully tempting to assume you’re a failure. But God wants you to know you’re not a failure, even if you think you are. What is more, God wants to help you obliterate the “I’m no good” syndrome with an infusion of grace. It probably will take awhile, involve hard work and challenge you to trust God like you’ve never trusted God before. But it will make all the difference in the world. Literally. Because God’s going to stay right by your side until you really, really, really experience that you are God’s beloved.
