Who Do You Listen To?

The Gardener

He prepared the soil,

pulled the weeds,

gave the seed

all it needed.

“It is good” He said.

Does the flower know it’s beautiful?

I wonder if we realize, deep within us, that the Lord intends us to love ourselves? Be with that. Do you? Do you really? Do you, instead, focus on societal or familial expectations or false beliefs? Do I . . . can I love the one theLord intended me to be whether or not friends approve of my choices? Is not His will alone my top priority? Can I accept or truly reflect His love if I do not love myself? I believe our society can negatively affect our priorities but I also believe living in Him surpasses all else, if we listen and follow. He’s got this.
