God's Steadfast Presence
Last night, I was in a restaurant with two wonderful brethren who suffered abuse and wounding in the family. During sharing time last night and also in our previous small group meetings in the church, they recognized God's grace into their lives. They resisted thinking of themselves in the murky, damaged light of their abusers. For truly, amid the unfaithfulness, deceit, and lies they suffered, their abusers were revealing their own nature. All that their abusers attempted to make them believe of themselves were possibly true of their abusers. If you are God's child, you are beautiful! Agree with God that you are "fearfully and wonderfully made." Carry the truth of your worth in God with you wherever you go.
