Self Love


The LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
Psalms 145:8 (NLT)

If God is so merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love toward us, why aren’t we that way toward ourself? Have you ever paid attention to your inner chatter when you don’t behave the way you felt you should? Sometimes we verge on self abuse. Where does that come from? Not from God. It is time we really start to believe that God is as merciful and compassionate as David says He is. We must let God’s forgiveness, patience, love and mercy toward us permeate our mind. When we start to see that God loves us that way, we will start to love ourself as well. His love will compel us to believe that we are lovable and forgivable helping us to treat ourself the way He does. Today, believe that the LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

Dear Father, thank You for being merciful, compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. Help me to be the same way toward myself.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
