Deserving

Sometimes we allow others and our circumstances to dictate not only our worth but what we think we deserve.

I wonder how much I missed out thinking I was undeserving.

I have wasted time allowing circumstances and others tell me what and who I deserved. Which amounted to nothing much at all. But when I stopped focusing on the voice of others and the noise of circumstances and instead began to listen to the voice of God, I found grace, love, and mercy.

God didn’t give me what I surely deserved for the wages of my sin. Instead, by His grace, love, and own blood shed, He granted me forgiveness. I learned that we are all worthy of His love, forgiveness and an abundant life.

I’m glad that I stopped listening to the voice of my own, and others’, negativity. I’m glad that I discovered who I am, who God called me to be, and His never-ending, never failing love for me.

  1. Your positivity is contagious, Jessy B. I had to learn more about you. Tapping on “About Me” got me nowhere. So, I found the place where it said your name under this blog title. There you have a quote – a delightful quote that says, “To know God is to know love. To trust God in the midst of chaos is the greatest expression of my faith in Him. He is ever so faithful to me.” So true! I can see we are like-minded believers. But, I want the “About Me” click to produce a link where you tell us a little about yourself. Can you do that?

    1. I will definitely work on the “About Me” section. My page has been through some changes/updates, so I wonder if I never completed or updated that section. It is great to find a like-minded believer!
