Read Abigail's #AcceptedByHim Story:
I've always craved God's approval. I was never much of a people-pleaser, preferring to look down at anyone who didn't live up to my standards. But this self-righteous perch didn't get me closer to feeling worthy myself. Even I couldn't live up to my standards, and the guilt only grew after each failure. It's still a battle for me, but through God's relentless pursuit of my heart, I have learned that I don't have to earn His love. I am already #acceptedbyHim. Favored, chosen, forgiven. This type of confidence allows me to freely love others, knowing that I myself am accepted.
