Have I mentioned....?

I love this blog that He lead me to.....from Jim's blog and this is his latest post.

“The strain of constant judgment is virtually intolerable. It is curious that an ability so debilitating would be so deeply cherished.”

Who is your authority? On what basis do you “judge” yourself? Do you judge yourself based on your behavior…in comparison to others…your ego…your perception of “success”…your physical appearance…your religiosity…your spiritual progress?

What if you listened to the voice of God deep within you? Would it scare you to hear God does not judge you based on these criteria? Would it scare you to hear God does not judge you at all in terms of ranking you based on the above things? Do you think your judgment of yourself should trump God’s?

What if the voice of Perfect Love said that you could never improve or diminish the perfection of who you are, and that in every moment you were “judged” as perfect in God’s eyes…every second, of every minute, of every hour…perfect in God’s estimation.

How great is that???

Hey there, to truly have that understanding within our hearts and minds that we are perfect in God's eyes and in His estimation...why is it that like our human relationships we try by performance to please God when He is simply pleased with our presence before Him. Someone famous once said, "Who is man that You are mindful of him?" We the created being loved by our Creator there is no need for anything else and yet we go seeking after it like we are not complete without it! God is enough!!!!

love ya girlfriend
