As You Love Yourself

I think God is on to something!

mark 12-31PINIT

Doesn’t it feel good when the veil lifts and you see an old thing a new way? That’s how I’m feeling about this age-old truth. All of a sudden, the word “AS” feels HUGE! Like it’s in ALL CAPS and BOLD! I get the sense many of you are feeling the same way. Isn’t this an amazing revelation?!?! What an invitation to love in a whole new way. Let’s just soak in it all weekend! Want to?

{For more context, listen to yesterday’s video. Who knew that reflections on yoga pants would lead us to this place?!?!}

With so much love,

P.S. The flowers in the photo are the ones that prompted my first ever video. Given to me by a Bravehearted Beauty who came to my doorstep with all of her brave heart wrapped into this beautiful little bouquet.

P.P.S. I just stumbled upon this post today: Freedom From Self-Hatred. Perfect timing, don’t you think? Written by a friend I met at Camp Ozark 20 years ago. I’m sure she never imagined she’d be speaking to large crowds of college girls back then {we were just college girls ourselves!}, but here she is doing a brave and beautiful thing.

  • Dikola - Hi Linsey! I don’t have the opportunity to comment often, but enjoy your post so much! I love this journey you are on…we are on! So here are some thoughts on loving ourselves. Phil 2, Gal 2:20, Matt 5, I Cor 13. I think there is much confusion in our modern thought concerning happiness and love. We can not confuse the two. The gospel points out that we are born thinking more of ourselves than we should….which causes a great deal of guilt and frustration. When we receive the forgiveness that God offers through the cross, we are receiving and believing in His love for us. We then are able to lay down our lives as a living sacrifice for those God places in our lives….passing on the love that we are experiencing in our relationship with Christ. When we point the arrow at us…what we need…our personal happiness…learning to “forgive ourselves”, I believe we have bought man’s philosophy. Our hope and our joy are found in Christ alone.ReplyCancel
