Romans 8:31

It can hurt when someone insults us. Maybe insulted us for our interests,clothes or looks. Maybe this person makes others feel terrible by picking out flaws, or made you feel small for something that you did they didn’t like. Whether its someone you know, or a complete stranger, being judged can hurt and hurtful things that are said to us can make us feel upset for along time, and its almost like what that person said to us at the time, is written in our heads permanently. Some people judge, but it’s okay because if God is for us? then who can be against us?

Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Knowing God is on my side is comforting as i’ve struggled with acceptance from others before and sometimes now. I use to have so many thoughts in my head like what does that person think of me if i do that, or i wonder if this person thought this or that was dumb. Small things that people didn’t accept about me made me feel small, but it came to me finally, and i realized i’m not who others say i am, or whatever they think of me, i’m who God says i am and how he made me. So thats okay if people don’t like something and It’s okay to be judged. As i feel like sometimes in our lives maybe God lets us feel judged or ashamed, even embarrassed, just so he can be the one to make us feel loved again.

Even though it is wrong for people to judge or think mean things, God can handle it, “if God is for me, who can be against me?” He has our back. But in all honesty, who cares what people think If were happy with ourselves through Christ and his word. Easier said then it not bothering us because of some of our insecurity, and because were human and we have feelings. As much as mean words can hurt, i think thats why its so important to know who we our in Christ and how we have to be careful not to forget how important we our in his eyes. Even though it hurts when someone criticizes us, especially when what is said to us hits home. But remember God knows how it feels, because the Lord gets his feelings hurt to, because he loves us so much, sinful thoughts and actions of his children don’t make him happy, even though God is so great to be forgiving of our sin as we fail to not sin, because we were born with a sinful flesh that Gods grace and forgiveness covers. God knows how everything we feel feels, including hurt feelings. He can make every insecurity go away through prayer and time with him, and simple as asking him to take the insecurity away.

Jeremiah 31:3

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love, therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

While other people only see our actions and hear our words, but won’t ever know everything about the deepest part of our hearts. I love remembering that God does, like what we want to say when we don’t speak it, to where our hearts lay when our focus is on Him and when it isn’t, and as imperfect as that is, he still loves us…

And i think thats so much more then being judged by man, i think its way more important to be loved by a God that looks past every flaw and sees us as perfect when we aren’t. So while you remember God loves you, be yourself no matter what people say or think, and God will handle the rest. God loves you more then anyone ever could in a life time.3909dbcb32924b3e374ebadfb81334b2
