you have meaning and are loved by God
“God created man in His image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them, saying to them: ‘Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.’ …God looked at everything he had made, and found it very good.”
You are very good.
Every human being at the moment of conception is made in His image. Every one living and in utero has meaning and is loved by God. Every soul is very good—according to God. Every aborted and living child is loved by God and so is every woman and man that makes the choice to abort their children or to birth them.
Redemption is always available. God understands. He who is not sin, knows sin and He sent his only Son into the world of sin to set us free of sin. It’s quite the mystery. It is a battle for freedom of purity of heart and mind that we will fight for our entire life until we die. This is true freedom.
And, there is so much joy in this battle when yoked with Jesus Christ. You just have to figure it out.
As St. Paul writes: “You were called for freedom. For freedom Christ set us free. Freedom is the ability to live in God’s wisdom and embrace His ultimate mysterious happiness that makes us truly free. Freedom is humble, passionate dedication to Jesus in every moment of daily life. Freedom doesn’t come easy, but it is available every minute until the moment of death. Weakness, freedom, and redemption—we are all in this battle against sin. Freedom is always about other.”
With the help of God’s awesome grace, we can free ourselves through prayer and fasting—always thinking about “other.” It is that simple.
We are good.
