Maintaining Grace and Self-Worth

This morning as I was glancing through the news on the computer, I came across a photo of an elderly actor and his daughter-in-law on stage as he was being honored.  What struck me in the face was her inappropriate dress, especially when all the abuse messages are posted everywhere.  Proudly, I judged this was sending mixed messages to men.  After spending a few minutes further on this, I was led to call a very good friend for her thoughts and she had thought the same as I.

Still dissatisfied we both knew there was something that had barbed our thoughts that needed praying about.  Then I remembered in my younger day, there were many times I had worn skimpy bikinis and other revealing  clothing.  It was apparent that I needed to forgive myself for earlier misjudgments and know that was never, ever a part of my pure self, just as issues are coming to the forefront to be addressed and healed.  God’s man is pure and perfect in Spirit and we are continuing to receive His grace.

Hebrews 4:16 reads, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”  There is never a “too early” nor a “too late” time to feel God’s Love.
