There is a very loud, consistent and powerful message, coming to us from our world, that leads us to believe that we must prove our belovedness...by how we look, what we have, what we can accomplish, etc. It is unfortunate that we are so very slow to grasp the liberating truth of our origins.
Life is a gift. We are each unique, we are known by name and are loved by the very One who fashioned us. Why is it we allow the "voice" of our world to drown out the "still, small Voice" of the One who loves us best?
