I have been watching people for several weeks and am saddened by the value they seem to put on their lives. Value according to Dictionary.com is relative worth, merit or importance. If people valued their lives, they would not do anything that would hinder their lives. People would eat healthy, exercise often, socialize in person, communicate with friends and family, and treat people with love, dignity and respect. The bible says, “Love thy neighbor as thyself!” I always have! I use to hate me and showed similar disgust to others.
When I realized the relationship I had with myself and my God I realized why I so devalued my life. I was sure that God was unhappy with me and was equally sure that there was no salvation available to me. When I realized that Jesus tried to convince us that God was grace, or unconditional love and never withheld love from me or anyone else I was freed from a life of fear and hatred. It is me through my free will that separated me from God’s grace and it is me that must surrender to God to have my spiritual life restored. It is in that surrender that my value was restored as I realized my true spiritual nature.
When I realized my true perfect spiritual nature I relaxed to my human nature and began to let and not make. I surrendered my struggle and strife. I surrendered my need for power and control. I surrendered my need to judge. I surrendered my life and its outcome. I live in wonder and awe to God’s will for me and look forward to my life as it unfolds under God’s care. I realize my value and knowing that God has no favorites, I realize his grace is equally given to all living creatures. I hope you all can realize your value in God’s eyes and accept it in your hearts. If you want to know your value, remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
