Loved vs. Approved
I used to question the gaps in my life and wonder what was missing. I learned that God’s love has a way of seeping into all the cracks and making our foundation secure.
This awareness changed me. My value is inherent as a beloved child of God. His unfailing love frees me from needing to earn approval from others for my self-worth. It enables me to live freely and love recklessly without being entangled by the fear of disappointing others.
To embrace Romans 8:38, “Nothing can ever separate us from His love,” provides confidence to be who I am, the strength to stand when life punches me in the gut, and the joy and freedom to live unencumbered by the need for approval.
