Not Just a Blanket Love
Have you ever asked yourself, Does anyone see me? Will anyone ever call me gorgeous? Maybe you've bought into the lie that you'll never be pretty enough, tall enough, smart enough, unique enough or important enough.
You look at everyone around you and think. There's no way i can compete.My sister is smarter. My bestfriend is prettier. My team mates are better players. But here's some great news:
The God who place the stars across heaven... whose very breath gives life... that God, the King has always been taken with you. He thinks you're gorgeous. In fact, He is absolutely wild about you! When God looks at you, He sees all the beauty He created. He sees every potential. Every gift. He loves the curly hair that you wish were straight. He loves your smile and the shape of your nose. He's crazy about the big feet and wobbly knees and every curve that you wish would go away. He loves the inside and outside of you.
After all, you were His idea!
You are physically and emotionally BEAUTIFUL to Him.
You might be saying to yourself, Yeah, He loves me. But He just loves me like He's loved every other created person in the history of the universe. I'm just one among zillions! If you think that, then hear this:
GOD's LOVE FOR YOU IS NOT JUST SOME KIND OF BLANKET LOVE.
It's more than a pat on the head for being a good girl or a zap with a lightning bolt when you mess up. His love sees into your soul and can hold you with power and strength greater than you could ever imagine. You are His, and He is yours. You belong to Him!
How do you feel knowing that God loves you with this kind of intensity? Remember, God loves you with an intense, knock-you-off-your-feet kind of love that's unique and just for you. You're not just one among zillions. That's just how big and great God's love is.
And He is wild about you!
