Thought of the Day February 22, 2018 See myself as God sees me

By 9:26 AM

Blessed are poor in spirit. Where does one begin? I must recognize and accept that on my own I am totally dependent on God for everything. I would not exist if God did not create me and sustain me. I am dependent on air to breathe, water so as not to dehydrate, food for nourishment and strength. As Jesus said: “Apart from me you can do nothing.” Or as St Paul realized: “In him who strengthens me I can do all things.” I am called to dispossess myself of self importance and self righteousness apart from God. Instead, I am to see myself as God sees me. As someone has said: “I am who I am in the eyes of God, nothing more and nothing less.” This is not false humility, but the basic truth. This is not putting myself down but realistically living fully in my true identity in Christ.
