In desperation I asked Heavenly Father to just tell me one good thing about me. Then I was still, and listened. A scripture came to mind almost immediately, and its words ran through my head. The scripture was John 3:16 and 17. I was particularly struck by the words from the 17th verse: "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."
I realized that I had been condemning myself for my human failings, but that God had not been condemning me at all. I am His daughter. Isn't that one very good thing about me? He loves me. He sent the Savior to help me, and certainly not to make me miserable. Learning is a process. Heavenly Father knows my name, my strengths, and my weaknesses, and He sent the Savior to help me. It is not my place to condemn anyone, even me.
