Love for oneself. It is easy to get caught in the idea that we are bad people and that things we have done in our past represent who we are. Yes, we might have done some things we are not too proud of and hurt the people we love, but we must not let the past determine the person we are today. When we honestly give ourselves to this program, it amazes us how the shame and guilt of the things we have done transform us into whom we always wished we were all along.
God, please let me forgive myself and bring the thoughts of others into my day-to-day thinking. Please let me remove the fear of others’ judgment and let them see the changes you have brought into my life. I will continue to grow better with your help.
