Five Minute Friday: Beloved

Every friday over at Lisa Jo’s blog is a big blog carnival called Five minute friday.To participate write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing. Lisa Jo’s topic this week is: Beloved.

Go.

I was once a part of a group called Beloved. We were an all girls group specifically reaching out to other girls. We talked a lot about how we are God’s beloved.

The word beloved always brings up this reminder to me:

I am God’s beloved.

So fitting to write on this on the day after Valentines.

WE are loved by God.

So loved!

We are loved by a God who is so big.

We are significant to a God who created all people, all creatures, the earth.

I am significant.

I love to think of looking down from a mountaintop at a town below, or down at towns from the window seat on a plane. It puts it all into persective how tiny, how insiginificant we are in the grand sceeme of all the people and creatures of the world.

But really,

To God,

I AM a big deal.

I love the imagery that if I was the only person on the earth who needed saving, God still would have sent his son to die for me.

Because he LOVES me.

I am His beloved.

Pretty powerful God’s love.

Pretty powerful that truth.

I

Am

Loved

I

Am

His

Beloved.

YOU

are

His

Beloved.

And don’t you forget it!

Stop.

  1. You are my neighbor today. Really enjoyed this! Sounds like a great group to be part of. Thank you for writing this. I used a bit of Song of Solomon (I am my beloved’s and he is mine) today, and so it was fun to read the direction you went with how we are His beloved’s. Blessings to you!~Rebekah
