A Prayer Hack That Will Help You Love Your Messy Self

UnknowYou're a mess you say? No problem. But that makes you not love yourself so much. Here's a prayer hack that will help you love your messy self!

Picture This:

You are no longer convinced God hates you. Though you can't stand yourself sometimes, he's all grins when he sees you. You don't like the things you say and do. He doesn't either, but he still loves you. Even when your sin could be nauseating, he doesn't turn away. He's there loving you back to right living. You're loved. No ifs. No ands. No buts. God loves you regardless.

Scripture This:

1 John 3:29 NCV

If our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

1 John 5:13 NLT

I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.

Colossians 1:13-14 NLT

For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

1 John 4:18 NLT

Perfect love expels all fear.

Pray This:

God, when I'm tempted to doubt your grace, wake me up. You love me too much to leave me in doubt. You never keep a list of sins consulting it often. In fact, on your list, there's nothing listed. How did that happen? Oh, yes, your mercy. Your love. Your Son. He covered it and I'm eternally forgiven and eternally thankful.

Say This:

I have been purchased. I have been given freedom and forgiven. I will not condemn myself anymore. The past is in the rearview mirror and I refuse to look back. God has made my heart clean and I am extravagantly loved. I will remind myself today that God loves me regardless of what I've done or who I am. I'm loved.

Share this with your friends and family so they can learn to love their messy selves too. They'll thank you!
