“With God, we are not loved based on reputation; we are loved based on relationship.
“We can live beyond the approval of the world because we live from the affirmation of God.
“I’ve found the real remedy for feelings of rejection, and it isn’t through tirelessly performing but through receiving the work that Christ has already performed for me.
“It’s through knowing that I don’t have to project an image of perfection but that instead I get to take on the image of Christ.
“I don’t have to mask my flaws either.
“Even the glorified body of Jesus had scars, so why would I attempt to hide mine? “
