Do you ever look at a beautiful sunset and feel as though God put that there just for you? Do you ever feel as though God loves you so much that he would do something just for you? I was reading the book "Having a Mary Spirit" by Joanna Weaver and she was talking about his very thing. How do we tap into Gods love and become so close to him that we feel confidently that we are his favorite? I want to be so close to God that I feel that way. And there have been brief moments where I really feel like that sunset was put there for my eyes and my heart only. If we all could feel so confident about God's love all the time, how much more could we love those around us. It has been said that you can't give what you don't have. But if I had a love that I was so confident about could I not just give it away like crazy. I wouldn't stop in the middle of doing something for someone and begin thinking about how I want someone to love me like this, or this isn't fair I want that, or why am I always doing things for people and no one ever does it for me. I would know that God does every day love me more than I could ever love anyone, I would see his work in every part of my life and I would be fully satisfied with his love for me that I could give with no abouds, love without fail. The encouraging part is that he does love us that much, and if we would only seek it every day with all of our hearts and CHOOSE to beleive that he does and he will always love us with the greatest love of all.
Is it okay to feel like Im God's favorite? I think so, especially if you all think that you are too.
The song that says it all "Amazing Grace"...my chains are gone, I've been set free. Ive been set free to live to and to love, to dance and to sing and to be the Lord's favorite. I needed to hear this song today and it just came on the radio. So I think I will go and sing in my opinion some of the most powerful words in my life.
Go today and relish in the fact that you are his favorite...and so am I:)
