How comforting is it to open your eyes and see someone there for you? Not just near you or around you, but for you.
I was talking with Andy about self-worth and I realized that I have improved so greatly in the past year. I struggled a lot last year with feeling like I was worth it and that I was good enough, and it took a lot for me to recognize that I was trying to think the wrong way. In fact, God does think I am good enough, no matter what mistakes I have made and continue to make. I am worth it. I am worthy only because of the grace and forgiveness that I have been given. It is so beautiful! Just thinking about how I felt so unworthy of things... I deprived myself of the things that I needed as a human. "We accept the love we think we deserve." I know now that I do deserve a lot more than what I gave myself.
