Being open

She sinned much therefore she loved much.
How do you wrap your mind around this?

When we have struggels we can have more empathy with those that are also struggeling. When we are aware of our own weakness and vulnerability,we can love more unconditionally without trying to fix the other person.

Jesus is busy transforming my thinking about everything, mostly to being open towards brokeness and vulnerability. I tend to run away from my flaws and insecurities, but Jesus wants me to run to it, to embrace it and bring it to Him. He wants me to embrace myself and everything about myself because He already does. He loves me for who I am. I am enough. I am worthy of love and belonging no matter what I did or didn't do!

I am learning to live honestly. To be open about my feelings and my thoughts. To be open when I don't agree on something or when something difficult is bothering me. I used to run away from conflict but Jesus is showing me that conflict is positive and it can create a new atmosphere. But it takes vulnerability and that means I need to be courageous. So I am walking this journey of being open and I am very exicted to discover new things with Jesus.
I tried so hard to keep everyone happy but in reality I can't be the source of someones happiness ,real happiness only comes from Him. I try so hard to be perfect when perfection does not even exist. We are all broken vessels and the Light within us shine through our cracks and makes Him visible.
When I accept my weakness and brokeness I will be able te receive His unconditional love.
As long as I am self righteous with a pointing finger focussing on my own weaknesses and the shortcomings of others I do not live loved.
To be able to receive His love is to know that I cannot earn His love! I can just receive it and the more I receive of His love the more I will be able to give freely to those that are unloveable.
