You would not call a man humane for ceasing to set mousetraps if he did so because he believed there were no mice in the house.~C.S. Lewis
Faith is not believing you are safe from drowning in a mud puddle. ~Me
It is easy to be confident when surrounded by people who believe in you.
It is easy to be brave when you know you are not alone.
It's easy to be funny when you have every reason to laugh.
It is easy to stand strong when the ground beneath you is solid.
Take all of those things away, and where are you?
Where am I really?
Working my way out mostly.
Finding things to rejoice and be confident in, even if it's the way a kitten transforms in my care, or the laughter of my babies.
But more than anything I am understanding for the first time in my life that God loves me, that He is the only one capable of loving me just as I am. He loves me when I fail. He loves me when I am scared, whiney, angry. He loves me when I'm not funny. He loves me when I'm skinny or fat. He loves me when I'm lost. He loves me when I'm found. He loves every tear, and every belt of laughter.
He loves me. And guess what? He loves you too.
