You are light and you are good

Sometimes it’s because I got angry.
Sometimes it’s because someone was angry at me.
Sometimes it’s because I let somebody down.
Sometimes it’s because I think I let somebody down.
Sometimes it’s because I’m having a bad day.
And sometimes it happens for no reason at all.

The toxic thought: I’m not good enough.

Perhaps you thought it today.

Can I tell you something? It’s wrong. The thought is wrong and you know it. So let me remind you.

You. Are. Good.

Here’s why: And God saw that the light was good. (Genesis 1:4)

You are the light of the world. Light is beautiful. Light is incredible. Light is good. You are good.

Refuse the lies. Refuse to shrink back. You are good. You are light. You make the darkness amazing.

So when you get angry, remember: you are good.
When someone gets angry at you: you are good.
When you let somebody down: you are good.
When you think you let somebody down: you are good.
When you’re having a bad day: you are good.
Whatever the thought: you are good.

Romans 3:24 Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.

Yes, friend, you are good.
