9.20.13 Lord, thank you for leading me today to read in 1 John of Your Word. I often condemn myself because I do not think I am doing enough to love other people. I do not measure up. I need to shut down this debilitating self-criticism. I know sometimes the standards I set for myself are higher than what others would expect of me. I often feel I am not getting things done fast enough or doing enough or reaching out enough or or or or . . . Lord, You are greater than my worried heart. You know my heart and my intentions and my efforts. You love me! I am good enough for you! Go away self-conscience and be replaced with God's love.
