Sharpening Iron

I'm gonna let someone else do the talking today.


To believe means to realize not just with the head but also with the heart that God loves me in a creative, intimate, unique, reliable and tender way.

Creative: Out of His love I come forth, through His love I am who I am.

Intimate: His love reaches out to the deepest in me.

Unique: His love embraces me as I am, not as I am considered to be in my own self-image.

Reliable: His love will never let me down.

Tender: Tenderness is what happens to you when you know you are deeply and sincerely liked by someone.
