Sometimes it’s good to be reminded of who God is in our life. In the day-to-day trials and stresses, we often forget about the One who loves us unconditionally. We often forget about the truth. We often live by our feelings instead of by the facts. Below I am posting a couple of reminders of who God is in my life. I received this a couple years ago, and I always turn to it when life gets a little overwhelming. When you can’t discern truth from the lies, remember these words the Father speaks over you every day:
I made her… she is different. She is unique. With LOVE I formed her in her mother’s womb. With LOVE I fashioned her with great joy. I remember with great pleasure the day I created her.
(Psalm 139: 13-16)
I LOVE her smile. I LOVE her ways. I LOVE to hear her laugh. And the silly things she says and does. She brings Me great pleasure… this is how I made her.
I made her pretty, but not beautiful, because I know her heart, and she would be vain. I wanted her to search out her heart and to learn that it would be Me in her that would make her beautiful… and it would be Me in her that would draw friends to her.
(1 Peter 3:3-5)
I made her in such a way that she would need Me. I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be… only because I need her to lean and depend on Me. I know her heart, I know if I had not made her like this, she would go her own chosen way and forget Me… her creator.
(Psalm 62: 5-8)
I have given her many good and happy things…. because I love her.
(Psalm 34:11 and Romans 8:32)
Because I love her I have seen her broken, hurt… and the tears she has cried alone. I have cried them with her, and had a broken heart, too.
Many times she has stumbled and fallen alone only because she would not hold My hand. So many lessons she has learned the hard way because she would not listen to my voice.
So many times I have sat back and sadly watched her go her merry way alone only to watch her return to My arms, sad and broken.
And now she is mine again…I made her and then bought her… because I LOVE her.
I have to reshape and remold her… to renew to what I had planned for her to be. It has not been easy for her or Me.
I want her to be conformed to My image… this goal I have set for her… because I LOVE HER!
( 2 Corinthians 2:14)
