Thank you, John for this strong and lovely Bible insight. It reminded me of something I experienced recently; I woke up in the morning after a pretty good night's sleep, feeling very negative about myself - it was as if I was looking for anything I could to find wrong with myself in order to prove that I really was a failure.
Suddenly, fortunately, I realised what was happening and I stopped myself from doing any more self-damage. It was as if God was telling me - and I believe he was - that he needed me to believe the truth about my value, so that I could share his love and grace with others.
We are blessed with his grace and we need to let go and live in it, every minute of the day.
Great stuff. Life changing if we choose to live in the good of grace.
