  1. Thank you, Holley! I’m sure I have my own mental version of “not good enough”. But your story helps me see that mine can be changed, too.

  2. We all are not perfect we never will be. No matter how hard we try to be. We can have that chip on our shoulder that no one loves us. Especially if feel that by a Family member where they meant to be there for us and to feel they love us then they are not. They seem to have favourites in other members of the Family than us. We then can begin to wonder what we did that we are not love the same by them as the other Family members. They don’t give us the same attention as they give other Family members. That can hurt alot. Then we feel if we be might have to be a good person to make them love us the same way they love them and treat us the same. We could be trying hard to be extra good to get them to notice us. Then we can get into our head was is it because we where bad or we done something wrong that they don’t like or Love us the way they like or Love the other Family members. We can take that to heart and believe it is because of that and that is the reason. Who is putting those thoughts in our heads only Satan the Old Devil. We have to know we are just as good we are just as Loved we are just as good as the Family that the other Family is spending more time with than us. We are just as special as them. We don’t have to feel we have to be good all to get there attention the Family member that we thought that was kind and caring that Love ud as much as the other Family members. We are Love all the time by the creater of the world our Lord Jesus Christ who Loved us so much he went to Calvary for us. To show us how much he loved us. So as if we ask him to be our Lord and Saviour would live in our hearts. Show us how to live and Love people of all walks of life and be good all the time. Take away our sin. Yes we will still sin. But we don’t have to feel bad if we do something wrong we can repent of it. Know we are forgiven and still loved try not do it again. Know we are loved all the time. Know to pray for people that we see that should give us the same love as they give others. Especially if Family. They might not realize they are doing it not giving us the same attention and Love as them. We not to take to heart that it hurt us that they do. We can learn to forgive them. Especially if not saved as they will see no wrong in what they are doing. Love today’s reading Holly. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  3. Love this. Thank you, Holley. Reminds me of one of my favorite verses about not being given a spirit of fear but of POWER, love, and sound mind.
