Scripture: Judges 6:1-16
“When you’re so ashamed that you could die, God believes in you. And you can’t do right even though you try, God believes in you. Blessed are the ones who grieve, the ones who mourn, the ones who bleed. In sorrow you sow but in joy you reap. God believes in you.”
“God speaks to us: not only to move us to do what he wants, but to enable us to know him so that we may love him. Therefore, God sends his word to us in the character of both information and invitation. It comes to woo us as well as to instruct us; it not merely puts us in the picture of what God has done and is doing but also calls us into personal communion with the loving Lord himself.”
JI Packer, Knowing God, 110.
“I wish you’d see yourself as beautiful as I see you. Why can’t you see yourself as beautiful as I see you?”
