The church will call people a heretic for years before they finally recognize them as a saint.
If we need the church’s approval, to be validated, to be seen, a lot of the world will sit unrecognized.
People whom God sees as perfect and loves unconditionally will often be sitting in the dark in tears, waiting for approval.
You don’t need to wait for approval! Why? Because, you’ve already got approval!
As you are, for who you are. Because Beloved, THAT is what you deserve.
