Sometimes I really don’t like me. Other times I’m content with who I am. So I definitely know that with God’s help, I can be a better me.
How about you, are you the best version of you that you can be?
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’”Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
How can we truly love others as ourselves, if we don’t even like ourselves sometimes? As we seek God’s presence in our lives, we acknowledge that only with Him at the centre of our lives can we become the best version of ourselves – one that not only God loves, but we also love.
As I write this blog post I’m reminded of the words of John Gowans:
In this quiet moment, still, before your throne, Conscious of your presence, knowing I am known, In this quiet moment, set my spirit free, In this quiet moment, make a better me.
I pray today that in my quiet time with God I will allow him to ‘make a better me’. I pray you will do the same.
