Loving what God loves!

So I was reflecting on who people are. What we like, dislike, how we act and the way we even look. I think of the saying a face only a mother could love, ouch. If I pause to think, I/we are people only God could love. I know that there are people who think I am fabulous/fantastic and other positive multi-syllable words, but when you separate the good from the bad, God still loves the bad part of me. he loves me when I swear, screw up, watch movies that are inappropriate. He doesn't say apologize and than I will love you and feel mushy gushy for you, He just loves me. It is this love that grows in me a desire to change. I don't want to mess up and do hurtful things, I want my lover to have the best not the rest ;)

So this is my challenge to myself and those that would dare to pick it up. Don't judge how God is working in the people around you, believe that He is and love them like He does.
