“He pre-destined us to be adopted by Himself as sons through Jesus Christ—such being His gracious will and pleasure” (Ephesians 1:5). God moved you into his family. He changed your name, your address, he gave you a seat at the dining table.
A young woman once approached me after hearing a sermon on forgiveness. She had battled much rejection in her young life. On this day she felt something different. She said, “I’ve made a discovery. I’m not an exception to acceptance.”
Neither are you. For heaven’s sake, accept your acceptance. No more self-recrimination. No more self-accusation. No more self-condemnation. Make grace your permanent address. God has made a covenant to love you with an everlasting love, and He will keep it. God never gives up on you.
