1 Peter 2:9 “You were chosen” True Self love. Imagine if we viewed ourselves the way God views us. Imagine how good we would treat others if we viewed others the way God views them. This world is very into self love these days. But I wish everyone understood the TRUE definition of true self love. God molded us in the womb in his perfect image. If I had a child of mine come to me and tell me they hate the way they look, knowing they came from my genes, it would hurt me. I want my kids to love who they are. God made us so perfect in his image. Our skin color, our hair, our shape, our talents EVERYTHING, but we as a society twisted what we think is perfect. It is so important to not view yourself the way the world sees you and see yourself in GOD’S eyes. Also, seeing others the way God views them. I had to forgive someone lately who wounded me deeply. I was angry and chose to not forgive and promised myself that this person simply did not deserve it. 1 month before my mom went to be with the Lord she sent me a text and said. “Did you know that God would never ask you to forgive someone for more than he has had to forgive you for? Pray tonight for God to help you view this person through His eyes. See them the way God sees them, maybe something will change.” Like wow. Just imagine how much we would love ourselves and honor God if we ignored worldly popular views and viewed ourselves and others the way God views us. I challenge you this week to do so. It can be truly life changing if you let it. Look at yourself in the mirror and understand that you were molded perfectly in God’s eyes. #alwaysbekind #staystrongmightywarrior
Teen Mom OG star’s husband supports her
According to Mackenzie, her husband, Josh, does help her, but she finds the heartbreak so overwhelming. She says it is sometimes too much to comprehend. McKee tells Cayla that she is in so much pain, she’s just crying and it “hurts so bad.”
The reality star says some days she doesn’t know what to do with all that pain, saying she feels paralyzed. When that happens, she can’t even get out of bed and she is not OK.
Sincere condolences to Mackenzie and her family during this tragic time. Watch Teen Mom OG on MTV, Tuesdays at 8/7c.
