“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly--you usually don't use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over. ”—Eckhart Tolle
“God likes you. Well, yeah, He loves you, so there's that. But God truly delights in you. He made you, and every inch of you is adorable to Him. Okay, yes, He doesn't like everything you do, and neither do you, so whatever. But God doesn't just put up with you, He actually likes you. God is your biggest fan. He likes your style. He thinks you're funny, He likes the way you dance, and He loves just being together and talking about anything and everything.”—Unka Glen (unkaglen.tumblr.com)
- Me: I'm a sinner, I'm unholy, I'm unworthy, I always do this so I am like this, and I'm a failure at that--
- God: No, child. You're not those. When you accepted Christ, you were born again. You are a new creation. Your identity comes is Him, and not by what you do, what other people think, or what society dictates. You've been made new.
