He is the God of Alreadys, inviting me to turn away from the voices that tell me I’m’ not “enough”.
His words are an invitation to every unwanted child, every unrequited lover, and every person who has ever wanted to know he or she mattersEph 1:4 1 John 3:1 Eph 2:9-10 (p 122)
I am loved! As is. And the more I focus on that love, the less I desire another’s. (p 128)
The Love Idol can sneak in to your life and trick you into looking away from God for something you crave; approval, respect, a pat on the back,
or a sense that you belong. (p 20)
Idols are stubborn showing up in innocent places…the Love Idol is just looking for an opportunity to ambush each one of us. (p 160)
The walk of a believer is not a drive-through service. Faith is not microwavable. (p 95)
“The cure is the process. It is ok if I don’t have all the answers yet. “(p 94)
