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.
