Since we have been done with the Love Dare for a while I decided it was time to review and add some areas that I need work on. So for this week I am going to work on "Allow yourself to be loved."
We have had a few sermons on allowing yourself to be loved. It is not only by God but by everyone. What is wonderful about God is he loves us unconditionally, we can do anything in his eyes and be forgiven. So why is is so hard to allow this love. Sometimes I feel unworthy and feel like I don't deserve that love. But I know the truth and all I need to do is accept it at all times.
In my personal life I feel this way too sometimes. I guess it happens when someone says something and it hurts my feelings. I truly know in my heart that they love me but sometimes I can feel that shield going up.
I picked the verse from John below to help me remind me.
John 13:34-35 (New International Version)
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
