How can any of us hate and devalue ourselves when God “did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all”? (Romans 8:32). I hope and pray that you can come to accept this divine mystery of how much God loves you just as you are, unworthy, yet deeply valued.
Unable to earn the love but knowing there is no need to earn it.
All you have to do is accept it. Don’t be like those who know of God’s love but have never experienced it. Experience it!
For it belongs to you.
