#Goodness

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Psalm 139:13-14

             Because I believe and know this deeply within my heart – that I am fearfully and wonderfully made – I also know that I am ok; I have good in me; my body, my soul, my spirit – all that makes up who I inherently am – is good, is right, is wonderful.  The very basis for who I am is good, right, and wonderful.  Because I was made – I was created that way, from the beginning, and with love.  By You. Baby Tommy for Blog

 “I have loved you with an everlasting love;

Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.

 Jeremiah 31:3

             I will dwell on this, I will recite this, I will ingrain this FACT, this knowledge into my brain, my heart, into the whole fabric that is me.  Until I believe wholeheartedly, with all of my heart, soul, and spirit, without hesitation, that I was in the very beginning – good!  My basis is GOOD! (Not bad, wrong, off, by mistake, flawed, evil, in error, etc.)

             And if my BASIS is good, no matter the circumstances of my conception and/or birth, if my beginning is GOOD, then I can always go back to that beginning good.  I can always choose to tap back into that good that has always been there inside of me since the beginning.  I can claim it and drag it out!  Yep, I can drag it out, pour it over my head and let it wash all down and over me, washing off all the years of grit and grime I have wallowed and covered myself in! Oh yes I can!

             No matter what I have done, no matter how unloved, unworthy, or unlovable I am feeling, I can go back – back to that good.  I can dress myself in that good.  I can walk in that good.  I can make that beginning good in me a real thing – once again.  And again.  And again.  I can allow that goodness within me to take over my mind, my heart, my body – covering over all the hurt, the betrayal, the negative.  I can allow it to mend, to heal, to relieve all the regret, the brokenness, the pain.  I can allow myself to feel that goodness within me!  I can become that goodness in me – I can BE  that GOODNESS – again!  Yes, once AGAIN 

 I CAN!

YOU can!!

Just #Believe

           …#Believe you have that goodness within you and that it’s been there since the day of your conception! Go look for it –dig down in there if you have to – find it! Take it out, dust it off and put it on!  Yay!!!  And then #Commit to allowing #goodness, #love, and #mercy into your heart, allowing them to reign over all else in your life.  #Commit to being and doing #good for yourself.  #Commit to being and doing good for others.  #Commit to #love, patterned after the #greatestlovestoryofall

 And if you don’t know what this love is, here are some fun explanations:  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+13&version=MSG

            This is what’s on my mind and heart today.  As I did this morning, I hope you will too, take this truth and push it deeply within your heart and soul, soothing your scarred and torn self-worth and shoring up your strength to start each day with GOOD!  Because you were intended for this!

 #Peace and #Goodness to you ❤

 If you don’t know what the #greatestlovestoryofall is, you can find out here: https://www.biblegateway.com/

           If you don’t believe this man is who this book says he is, then try to see it this way: the story of him, his life, and his love is still a perfect template to trace and model in our own lives.

 Here’s to living out #Goodness in 2015!

#Commit to #goodness, #love, and #mercy, allowing them to reign over all else in your life. #Commit to a #love patterned after the #greatestlovestoryofalltime.
