So What's with the Title??

I walked around for years and years with FEAR,

fear of people's opinions,

fear of doing "IT" wrong,

fear of not meeting other's expectations.

Have you ever felt that way?

It's really not a great way to live at all.

But the story doesn't end there,


He RESCUED me from my misconstrued values,

from my misplaced identity in other's opinions,

and He showed me who I really am -

through His eyes.

You'll hear me talk about this a lot,

because it applies to each one of us -

we strive to accomplish, to earn, to measure up,

yet in reality we really never will,

but with GOD, we don't have to,

because His LOVE for us is based on who HE is,

not who WE are!!

What a GIFT!

And because of that,

I can say,


I no longer have to meet other's expectations,

or fit in, or APPEAR a certain way, or PERFORM to have VALUE.

I AM LOVED simply because I am ME!!

And the same applies to YOU -
No STRINGS attached!!

You are LOVED because HE is LOVE.

So won't you JOIN ME in being

totally over THAT which doesn't really MATTER?
