God created me and HIS character has gone into that creation. I must love myself and not allow thoughts of self-rejection and self-hatred to stand. Those thoughts are so far from the truth. They are not of God. I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
I'm truly struggling with the current practice of publicly rejecting, humiliating or even trying to shame people or groups, just because they don't happen to share the same skin color, beliefs. politics or culture. It's high time we cancel the "cancel culture.". This "woke" mentality, that America is made up of "systemic" racism, injustices and prejudices, is just pure craziness.
To become a "Jesus Freak," we must recognize that even though our human nature may sometimes lead us down the path of unforgiveness, bitterness, spitefulness and unkindness, we must always remember that we'll never find Jesus in those places! It's in these times, that we must get on our knees and ask Jesus to forgive us and help us make better decisions.
I don't know about you, but I'm a little fatigued over all the chatter about the United States of America being a racist country. We have certainly made mistakes and had some pieces of our history that we'd like a do-over for, or maybe even want to erase. However, let's be clear... when we try to erase our history, it erases all the progress we've made towards creating that more perfect Union, and more importantly, puts us in jeopardy of repeating that same history.
