To Let Yourself Be LOVED

This week I realized something, at times I don't ask people to do things for me because I don't feel like I deserve it. I expressed that to my boyfriend Adam and he asked me, "Do you have to deserve it?" That profound truth struck me.
When it comes down to it all of us don't really deserve anything. All that we have and have been give is a free gift from God. He gives because He loves us. That is a hard truth that I have to ponder. I have to be re-convicted of it each and every day and at times I forget but I'm given reminders. I must let myself be loved.
For if I allow myself to be loved I can in return allow myself to love other more fully.

"We love because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19
