105- Not Worthy?
That’s a Lie!
In the original entry this encompassed more thoughts and verses. I simplified it.

I think I just saw something!!
Psalm 51:6 Behold, You desire TRUTH in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom.
There is a lie in my innermost being that continually says I am not worthy.
YES, THERE IS A LIE. WHAT IS THE LIE, FATHER? EXPOSE IT PLEASE.
Is there an incident, a person, or a sin my mother passed on to me?
I think—all I need to do is BELIEVE I am worthy—
The flesh says: you will be a traitor to me if you believe you are loved. You would not be as I have trained you to be—willful, selfish, spoiled, negative, impatient.
But I say: I am in the image of my heavenly Father. The fruit of His Spirit is to flow from me continually.
I am free to love my children as an imperfect person and I am free to not expect them to be perfect.
I am free to let Christ himself live through me.
The chains are broken to my flesh, my house, my past.
I am free to let go and enjoy my husband and my children.
I am free to trust Christ.
I am free TO TRUST CHRIST.
I am free to be near or leave my parents and sisters.
I am free to leave Reno, Life Center, the safety of the known for the unknown.
