It is humbling to write a blog about letting God’s love fill your life. The obvious question is “Who do you think you are to write on a subject like this?” It’s simple – I have to think, pray and write about it because I don’t know how to do it.
I am clearly the older brother in the Prodigal parable and the busy sister Martha trying to make everything right in hosting Jesus. I try to do it right. My career choice shows that. I spend my life writing computer programs which don’t work if I put a period in the wrong. place
The problem for the perfectionist is that no matter what I do it is never enough. I know my faults and even imagine some. It took me years to understand that in order to love others as I love myself, I have to love myself. After all, God loves me. If He can love me, why can’t I?
The idea is to learn to relax in God’s love and enjoy the incredible truth that He loves me even when I don’t get it rite!
