“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Marvellous are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well.”
Psalm 139:14 KJV
If loving you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right. If being right means being without you I’d rather live a wrong doing life..
(As written by Luther Ingram)
That’s how I feel about myself… after all the things I’ve been through, all the things that have happened to me, I’ve learned to love myself and nobody and nothing can make me change how I feel about me.
Over the years I have been molested, cheated on, mentally abused, lied to, lied on and often felt left out. I used to believe that because of the things I had been through and the things that happened to me that I was unworthy of love. I felt I was dirty and misused and unworthy of affection. I felt I was beaten down mentally and I was afraid to let myself be loved, even by God. Ain’t that crazy.. I don’t normally say that word but it’s appropriate right here. I was a fool for listening to the enemy define me.
One day the spirit of the Lord reminded me that it was my responsibility to teach people how to love me and I needed to start with allowing Him to love me. I had to begin to see myself the way God saw me. I had to remember that I was fearfully and wonderfully made. I had to remember that God knew me before he formed the world, nothing in my life would catch him by surprise. I had to trust that God knew what I needed and he would move heaven and earth to make it happen. I had to let the love of God heal me.
I say to you, let God heal you so you will love yourself and once you can trust the love of God, you will be able to allow true love in your life.
“You can be sure that anyone who serves the Lord faithfully is special to him. The Lord listens when I pray to him.”
Psalms 4:3 ERV
