My dear children, let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. This is the only way we'll know we're living truly, living in God's reality.
It's also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it.
For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.
1 John 3: 18-20 – The Message
God is greater than our worried hearts
Lord, You are greater than I can ever imagine.
Greater than my worries.
Greater than my fears.
Greater than my accomplishments.
Greater than my failures.
Greater than my self-criticism.
Greater than my knowledge.
Greater than any talent or skill I possess.
Thank You for being so huge to swallow up my sin.
Thank You for Your strong, protecting Shepherd arms.
Thank you for your immeasurable grace and enormous heart of love.
You, O Lord, abolish my worries from my heart and grant us Your peace.
Thank You for being Greater.
