Is there any perfect person out there? Nah! Of course not! we all come with something and are constantly being molded into something better. The Lord is developing all of us and works with us right where we are. What a blessing it is to be accepted right where you are, how you are - flaws and all. When Love Shows Up, Love Accepts.
Love doesn’t try to change you but rather pushes you to be your best self. Love admires your quirks and finds humor in your ratchetness (yeah you got some ratchet!). Love may not like everything you do or say but it accepts it and offers a kind, ‘bless your heart’ declaration and scurries on about the day. Love takes hold of your deepest flaws and secrets and handles them with extreme care and of course - love.
Love’s acceptance causes you to feel secure, safe and empowered as if you can jump the largest hurdle in one leap! When love accepts, you can be your true, authentic self, flowing in your best rhythm.
1 Corinthians 13:7 (NCV) - Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures.
