His banner over me is love.
He calls me beloved.
And as I have been soaking in that truth, and others like it, I realize that i have been the biggest hindrance to my receiving His love.
Because I don’t feel loveable most days. I feel awkward, a misfit, out of sorts, stressed, relaxed, hungry, thankful….but not loveable.
But just coz I don’t believe something doesn’t make it any less true.
God reassures me daily of His love for me. Through His Word, His gentle touch, His answers to my prayers, and the care He takes to meet my needs.
If someone continually tells you the opposite of what you believe, there are only options before you.
Deny it or accept it.
My feelings aren’t supposed to be my filter for what is true. Truth is.
The truth we can read in the Word.
The truth He whispers into our broken hearts.
The truth that He has loved me from the beginning of time, and will do so until and for all eternity!
I am His beloved.
And because I am His, He reminds me He is my Beloved.
His love is mine.
When we grasp how deep, high, wide, long & kind His love is, we can begin to feel it!
When you are told you are not only irreplaceable but also adored, are the apple of His eye, and the love of His heart….your broken bits begin to beat again. With new life, as a fresh infusion of His love moves in to awaken what was format inside.
“Come away with Me, My Beloved” is His heart’s cry of love for us, each and every one of us.
Will you let His love move into your broken heart, and begin to restore you to receive His love for you?
Because, in case you missed it, you are His favorite 🙂
