A New CreationPhoto by Elisabeth Wales

“We accept the love we think we deserve” (Stephen Chbosky). Sadly, we are not only prone to accepting the love we think we deserve, but only the love we think we deserve. And it severely limits us to remaining what we are. Or even less than we are.

    To where we are, until we’re found, found, found.” 🎶

    What a great reminder. I thank God that God’s definition of the love I deserve is infinitely greater than mine.

    My wife once told me that we shouldn’t want what we deserve because what we deserve is an eternity in hell. I will gladly take the love that I don’t deserve over what I do deserve any day.
