I recall that for a while, I really struggled with believing that I deserved love – I had told myself that because of what I’d experienced that the realities of pure, true love would be impossible. Some of you are the same way, you replay the images of being on the losing side, because you’ve lost for so long. It’s hard for you to even imagine receiving something good. In some cases, a good thing has come along but you challenged it and downright rejected it, because it was too good to be true. You minimized its value or made it so dysfunctional because that’s the only way you know how to react. For others, you’ve repeated the same bad decisions – gravitating towards negativity, toxic, and unproductive relationships. Why? Because to receive something good means you’ll have to accept a truth that you’ve struggled with for so long – that YOU ARE REALLY WORTH GOOD THINGS. There is a recorder in your heart and mind that needs to be erased and replaced with positive truths of God’s love for you. Not religion- I’m talking about your Heavenly father’s love for you, like a loving father would want for His daughter.  That might be a difficult concept to grasp because you haven’t experienced a loving father here on earth, but trust that God does love you even if your earthly father hasn’t. Take the time to pray, talk to God about your experiences, the pain and hurt and allow him to engulf them, and replace them with his warm, powerful love. He has a beautiful, radiant life for you – and it starts with you believing that you are worth every good thing that comes your way. In Jeremiah 29:11, God says, “For I know the plans I have for you…they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” You are a daughter of a loving Father who wants good things for you.
