You are more than a cutter, you are loved.
It's time to separate from your cutting ways and experience love. You are perfect exactly the way you are right now. The way you think, the way you feel and the way you look is perfect. I can prove that.
In all the world, there's only one you that's ever been created.
There's none like you in the past.
There's none like you in the present.
There's none like you in the future.
There is a purpose for your life.
If you don't become all that you were destined to be, then you've wasted you.
Perfection is a growth process. In the soil of your heart is a seed of love.Within that seed is the image and likeness of Love. Yeah, the seed inside you is the God who made you and loves you. The seed of love will grow when you break down the walls of self-loathing surrounding your heart. Ask God to show you his love and he will.
Jesus was cut so that you don't have to.
His head was cut by a crown of thorns.
His hands and feet were cut by nails.
His side was cut by a spear.
His heart was cut by sin.
God loved you so much that he allowed Jesus to be cut for you. Raise the blade away from your skin the way Jesus was raised on a cross. He died for all of the self-loathing sins of all of us - me and you. He died for the cutting sin that separates us from the love of God. Raise the blade away from your skin the way Jesus was raised from the dead so that we could have a life in heaven where cutting no longer exists.
You don't deserve shame. You don't deserve the insults. You don't deserve the bullying. You don't deserve all that you've endured. God's enduring love can make all things work for good if you will only believe in his love. The butterfly has to struggle out of the cocoon. The diamond is made from stress and pressure. The pearl is made from an irritant in an oyster. A muscle doesn't grow stronger unless it is ripped. The Saguaro has to let part of it's flesh die to form a boot where a nest of new life will grow. The ground has to be broken to plant a seed. This is your season to embrace love and let the grace of God pour his mercy upon your heart. You were born for such a time as this.
Romans 8:31-39 The Message
"So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:
They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.
None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us."
Romans 8:5-8 The Message
"Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored."
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody.
