There are times, when life is hard. We can get so distracted by the cares of this life. Stress, debt, loss and hurt can overwhelm and swallow up our peace. People let you down! Plans fail. Hopes disappoint. Sickness brings weakness. But there is one Truth that enables us to face Life. To rise above, this is the truth that you and I are God’s Beloved.
What do I mean, by God’s Beloved? You are the object of His Love. The joy of His heart, the reason and purpose of His mission.

But you are God’s Beloved because of His heart and not yours. God looks at you and sees potential. God looks at you with true understanding and knowing. God knows all your secrets, weaknesses and faults and still says, “I choose you, as my Beloved, you are mine and I am yours.
It matters not what others think of you, because you are chosen by the Loving God Almighty. He does not ask you to put faith in yourself but in His Love and ability to remake your life, into your full potential. Like a lover on one knee asking for your hand, while holding out Promise to you, he looks deep into your heart and eyes. Will you accept?
What do you say?
I say, Yes Lord!
Grace and Peace!
