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.
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.
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.
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.
And don’t you forget it!
