Because I am Loved

I had a little quiet time this morning before the kiddos woke up and it was very apparent that God had a message for me today...


via
Do I do things because I am loved, or because I want to be loved?

Excerpt from this devotional:
"Because I am loved, I can humble myself.
When I'm trying to be loved, I must build myself up to look better.
Because I am loved, I can cast all my anxiety on Him.
When I'm trying to be loved, I cast all my anxiety on my performance.
Because I am loved, I can resist Satan and stand firm in my faith.
When I'm trying to be loved, I listen to Satan and stand uncertain trying to rely on my feelings.
Because I am loved, I know God will use this to make me stronger - and I want that.
When I'm trying to be loved, I don't want to be made stronger - I want life to be easier."
This was a good reminder for me today, especially since I tend to fall into the people-pleaser category.
I hope you know you are loved!
