Dear Sister Clare, your blog description on 'the beloved' is something I really struggle with. Could you expand a little on how God's love for you is something that's such a big reality for you? I just don't see how He could love me all the time? Thank you! Yours in Christ, Heleen
Thank you for your message Heleen 🤗 The reality of being God’s Beloved is something which I struggle with as well. That’s why I purposely put that quote on my blog as my constant reminder. I know all of us struggle with that in some way. Our personal history oftentimes steals away our belief that God loves us unconditionally. This is the biggest lie the Evil one tries to imprint on our hearts. For me, the healing & acceptance of God’s love starts when I let God touch my hurting places in prayer. When I allow myself not to feel anything & trust God that HE LOVES ME, even when everything in me wants to scream this is not true. It is a long process. We can offer God our patience. He’s doing a surgery on our open heart & it takes time. The healing comes along with our trust & perseverance in prayer. We will never experience how much God loves us unless we let Him love us. He is waiting for our ‘yes’. I am praying that we all one day stop hiding & start shining as His Beloved children. Remember, YOU ARE HIS BELOVED!
Love & Prayers 🌿
