I Only Have Five Minutes... I'd better type quickly and without error.

I just wanted to check in with something I've been learning and thinking about a lot lately. You may not think it's so profound, but it's totally transforming my life.

Here it is: God loves me, even when I don't do what I'm supposed to. That's all. God loves me just because I'm me. Isn't that amazing?

I need to go now. I have a meeting to lead and committee members to whom I need to admit that I didn't do any of my action points from the last meeting. In fact, I've even lost my notes from the last meeting. But they love me anyway. Just like God. Isn't that great?

And, also, I've discovered that admitting when I screw up frees them to not beat themselves up when they've had a busy month and haven't completed their responsibilities. 'Cuz let's face it. We're all volunteers and there is only so much we can get done sometimes. I know that and they know that--and I love how we have no reason to pretend we don't.


  1. What a great epiphany. My recent one is similar: I can have joy no matter what my circumstances. Even if I don't feel it. It's there.



Sorry--I've had to close comments down because I've been getting so much spam.
