Today is is December 19th 2016 as I write this and Christa Black Gifford just had a live Instagram video about her judging herself and focusing on the world instead of God. And I can't express how true that is about me.
I wake up in the morning and remember every past mistake. I get dressed and look in the mirror and ask, "why do I not look like blank?" I put my make up on and my smile so I can look the worldly part. I am constantly trying to love and not to judge others, because I would never want them to feel how I feel. But, I am constantly judging myself.
That boy you see? Is he really saying all those horrible things about you? That girl you see? Is she really spreading rumors about you? Probably not. That is you judging and hurting yourself. But don't worry, I have good news, you're not alone.
The mistake you keep bringing up, stop it. God doesn't even know what you're talking about. He looks at us with so much love. And we are down here judging ourselves with what we have done and how we look. Instead we should be focusing on how God sees us and focusing on Him. If we focused more on Him instead of the world, it might be easier to share the good news. Because it will be good news to us as well.
Stop judging who you were. Your sin is in the past. You are new and so loved. You don't deserve to be treated badly. Pinky promise.
"There is only one lawgiver and judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you- who are you to judge?" James 4:12"
You are beloved. God does not ike it when He sees us hurting ourselves.
