Bursting with Blessings

Devotional James 2:8

Love another as you love yourself.

I find it fascinating in our world that we teach that loving and caring for ourselves isn't good.

I see that God wants us to care for ourselves, focus on growing in the word, shift our mindset first to His word and way, and then be His hands and feet.

If we don't heal our own battle wounds, mindset issues, and learn to see our worth and value then how can we value others?

We treat others from our place of spiritual maturity and healing or from a place of stagnant brokenness.

Let's choose today to seek and find the healing tools we need to transform ourselves in the word and treat all those around us from a place of healthy love because we know our worth and value.

*message me and let's begin that journey together.

Let's pray: Dear Lord God Almighty, we humbly come before You with thanks and praise. We thank You so much for first loving us even when we were prideful, broken, and unwilling to see ourselves the way You see us.

Lord please lead each of us to the healing scripture, the healing tools, the healing habits, and the self-care that will bring about lasting blessings for ourselves and all those around us.

Lord we long to see ourselves as You see us and to be Your hands and feet in the way that You want us to be, not in the way the world keeps telling us.

Thank You Jesus for leading us day by day, moment by moment.

All praise and glory to You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
