I feel so bad taking two days off blogging because of work and other personal stuff especially when the first readings for the past two days were about the Creation. It’s like we’re starting anew in our faith journey.
What struck me the most about the Creation story was how God called every thing He created as “good.”
"God looked at everything he had made, and He found it very good.”
Goodness is our original design. God made us to be good.
For the past few days, I struggled with self-belief again. But, God reminded me that no matter how far I have fallen, no matter how much I have sinned, I am still good enough for Him. Because He created me to be good. Even before I accomplished anything, He was already pleased with me.
Like me, maybe you have fallen so far because of your sins. Maybe you’re already thinking that you are a failure. Maybe you have even fallen far away from God. But, just remember that when God created you, He found you to be very good. He was already pleased with you the very first moment you were created. Even when you have done nothing yet to deserve His love.
You are good. Maybe you can’t see it. (I also struggle with this… a lot.) But, God sees it.
Shall we pick ourselves up?
