I Have Something to Say About Something


Today is my birthday, #53 :)

I woke this morning with a song in my heart, which I do many mornings. This mornings song was, " You are the TREASURE that I seek!!!

At first I thought that was me singing to the LORD, but as I was brushing my teeth it hit me... I don't think that it was me singing to Him, it was Him singing to me...

He sees me as a TREASURE, and He seeks to be with me...He wants to spend time with me, to share my day, the good and the bad, the happy and the sad. He seeks to laugh with me, and to wipe away my tears when my heart begins to break.

He seeks me, He would leave the 99 just to come after me. He loves me.

He created me, He had me in mind long before time began. He knew what I would do; good, bad, foolish, or even remarkable, and still He knew He wanted to create me. He aligned things to happen, so that I would be here today, on my 53rd birthday.

And guess what????

He loves you and everyone else, that much too!

It is almost to hard to wrap my brain around, but I know that it is true, and better than that... I'm beginning to FEEL that to be true.

Thank You Father for loving me enough to create me. <3

"Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it? When he has found it, he carries it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

Matthew 18:12

Have you ever felt "not good enough", that you are broken, missing something?

For most of my life I have felt that, and for no good reason really.

I grew up in a safe, loving, Christian home; parents who loved me.

I have always known (with my ears) that I was loved, treasured actually, by a God who created me, but I haven't felt that in my heart; which is where I think we need to "hear" it.

At almost 53 years old having two marriages, and two divorces, several failed relationships, my belief that I am NOT GOOD ENOUGH is an even stronger feeling in my heart; or at least is WAS!!!

God has graciously brought a man into my life that is showing me that according to the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, the Creator of all... I AM GOOD ENOUGH, and not only good enough, I'm perfect. I am LOVED, exactly how I am. If I never changed a thing about me, God would love me as much as He does if I changed everything. Now because He does love me, He doesn't want me to stay broken, but He loves me even if I did.

God LOVES YOU EXACTLY who you are today, broken, shattered, mistrusting, unapproachable... all of it, HE LOVES YOU!!!
