Happy #SelfLoveSaturday! And April!
This month I'm doing things a little different. Easter is coming back and it is my favorite holiday. It is not my favorite holiday because of a bunny rabbit and all the chocolate, although the choclate is very good. But, the real reason about Easter, Jesus dying and coming back to life. A beautiful thing for us broken sinners.
One of my favorite things that I have herd is, we do not have to make us bleed, because Jesus bled for us.
When I was self harming I horrible about myself. When I heard this saying, it reminded me that Jesus went through this pain that I was supposed to go through, so I wouldn't have to go through it. We will have hard times, but nothing compares to going on the cross to be crucified.
It's really hard pill to swallow sometimes. The fact that Jesus came to this earth to die our death. But, He did. This beautiful FLAWLESS man, died for us. The broken sinners who mess up every single day. He looks at us with love. When He sid, "It is finished," He meant that.
It is finished. We don't have to hurt ourselves. We don't have to cut ourselves. We don't have to say horrible things to ourselves. It is finished. Isn't that beutiful?
You should love yourselves, because Jesus came down to show us just how much God loves us.
"But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
