HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 1: “Be confident because you are a child of God. Be humble because everyone else is too.”― Glennon Doyle Melton

What a wonderful thing it is to know our “child of God-ness.” It freaks people out that I call myself God’s favorite kid…they think it excludes them somehow.

What I do is manifest that in the world. I walk in the world like God loves me as the favorite and my life is amazing and miraculous almost all the time! And I know it and sing gratitude songs and write letters of gratitude every day.

What else this tells about me is that I know NONE of the good in my life is my doing. It is all GRACE! All of it, every single moment.

I am the worst kind of asshat. The worst…doing the most horrible things in the world and wondering why no one, including (especially) me, liked me. I was an asshat! Completely. And so put upon and such a victim. Then I get to this amazing place of grace and love. By accident…with out a single qualifying good deed to show on my record.

And I get to live this amazing and wonderful life, filled inside with SO much love and joy…it ain’t me buddy. Believe it!

So I get to call myself God’s favorite kid…and I am, but so is everyone who knows it and lives it and claims it. I f-n love that!
