Dad’s Blessing June 21, 2007

 I bless you with a clear view of yourself – as God’s child.

 “To him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think…be glory.”

 Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV

 There are two extremes of poor I-sight. Self-loving and self-loathing. We swing from one side to the other. Promotions and  demotions  bump us back and forth. One day too high on self, the next too hard on self. Neither is correct. Self-elevation and self-  deprecation are equally inaccurate. Where is the truth?

 Smack-dab in the middle. Dead center between “I can do anything” and “I can’t do anything” lies “I can do all things through Christ   who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13).

 Neither omnipotent nor impotent, neither God’s MVP nor God’s mistake. Not self-secure or insecure, but God-secure—a self-worth  based in our identity as children of God. The proper view of self is in the middle.
