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.
"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.
