To be loved intensely and freely

“I hope it is clear that feelings of guilt, accompanied by anxiety, fear and restlessness, arise from deep within ourselves and are not an accurate gauge of the state of our souls before God,” cautions Bernard Bush. “We cannot assume that he feels about us the same way we feel about ourselves, unless we love ourselves intensely and freely.”

– A Glimpse of Jesus, Brennan Manning
