You are loved by our Lord. He delights in you. He desires that you know him. He wants to meet with you daily. His ear attends to your every call. Yes, He knows your fears and doubts. He knows all of your shortcomings. He can see even those sins that you can’t and yet… He loves you.
He says, “Yes! You are mine. Dearly Beloved, you are mine. I love you just as you are.
He knows you inside and out and He loves you anyway. In fact, you were on his mind when he gave his life. He knew every one of your sins. He took your shame. He experienced rejection, so that you might be fully accepted. He was insulted, so that you might be honored. He became weak so that you could be strong. He took on your wickedness, so that you might be pure and righteous. He chose to take your punishment so that you could be free. He wants you to be free! Free to enjoy His love and free to love others. Free to enjoy His creation:
Free to enjoy life abundantly.
He wants to fill your cup to overflowing with good things. Come to him. Bring your cup to the river of life. He will fill it with the life you’ve always wanted and with the promise of even more in the next life. He will remove your despair, your heartache and disapp0intments. He will turn your ashes in to beauty!
Dearly Beloved, you are mine. I love you just the way you are, but I want to give you even more. Look into my mirror, let me show you what I see:
You are free.
You are forgiven.
You are pure.
You are righteous.
You are perfect.
You are beautiful.
This is my gift to you.
