But we’ve all felt it I think: This feeling of not-good-enough.
I love that God doesn’t try to minimize my shame, but he doesn’t focus on it either.
He sort of just moved past it and tells me what is great about me.
He tells me that I have a positive destiny.
He tells me He’s crazy about me.
I’m crazy about you too, God. You are brave and kind and wise and true. You have my heart. 💛
Regarding Zion, I can’t keep my mouth shut, regarding Jerusalem, I can’t hold my tongue, Until her righteousness blazes down like the sun and her salvation flames up like a torch. Foreign countries will see your righteousness, and world leaders your glory. You’ll get a brand-new name straight from the mouth of God . You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God ’s hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God. No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined. You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight), and your land Beulah (Married), Because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration. For as a young man marries his virgin bride, so your builder marries you, And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride, so your God is happy with you.
Isaiah 62:1-5 MSG
