Don’t allow another negative word toward yourself come out of your mouth. Celebrate who God made you to be. Start meditating on the fact that you are God's masterpiece. You are one of a kind, equipped and anointed. You are God's very own creation.
Christianity is not simply reaping blessings and having all sunshine and butterflies--- Christianity is denying yourself, picking up your cross and following Christ. Yes the cost may be great, but the investment is eternally greater.
I serve a God who provides.
You can't love without sacrifice.
We ought to be persuaded that what God refuses to our prayer, He grants to our salvation. – St. Augustine ✝
“Desire for true happiness frees man from his immoderate attachment to the goods of this world so that he can find his fulfillment in the vision and beatitude of God. “The promise [of seeing God] surpasses all beatitude…In Scripture, to see is to possess…Whoever sees God has obtained all the goods of which he can conceive.” —Life in Christ: Catechism #2548
He is not just a God. He is the living God.
“A pure soul is one freed from passions and constantly delighted by divine love.” —Saint Maximos the Confessor
