In God's Heart

In my roaming around on the computer this morning I found this blog.  I don't usually read the DaySpring things I get in my e-mail in-box but for some reason I was prompted to open and read today's e-mail.  It was just the reminder I needed.

No matter what is going on around me I know that God sees me differently than I even see myself.  Too often I listen to voices, some belong to others but most come from inside myself...they may have originated from other people, some from long ago and some more recent but usually from within they scream.  I've been told at times I am my own worst critic and I know that to be so...I think most of us are that way, in our real selves.  But this morning as I read and looked and absorbed the truth of who I am in Christ, because of Christ, I was encouraged because no matter what anyone else thinks of me, God has is own opinions based on who He created me to be, before the fall...and He is in the process of redeeming every single fallen area and bringing it into subjection to Him.  What a thought!!  EVERY FALLEN AREA...being redeemed, renewed, changed.  Maybe for me a little more slowly but every day, a little more...Him working in me to conform my falleness into His image.  Wow, and this can only be accomplished by Him...I just agree with Him and move one step closer to being what He intended before the enemy's assault on my soul/my life/my very self!! 

The link above asks for one word to describe who you are in God's heart!


  "In God's Heart I Am...



ACCEPTED

That's the word I would choose!

There are so many that are important, Forgiven, Loved, Precious, Worthy, Adopted,

but for ME....ACCEPTED is the word that defines and catagorizes my most precious thoughts right now
in this particular season of my life!!

Ephesians 1 has become a precious passage to me as I read the truth contained there of who I am in Christ!! 

Amazing Grace that saved a wretch like me...

Amazing, that's for sure!

  1. Accepted. Indeed, that is a precious word. One that is precious to me, as well. I have faced so much rejection (real and simply perceived) and have battled so much insecurity through out my life. So to be accepted by Him...oh, what joy. What peace. I am still learning to REST in that acceptance. :)

    Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving me a comment. An encouraging one at that! :) And I love how you describe yourself in your sidebar...a people pleasing, perfectionist control freak in recovery. I am not unfamiliar with that territory myself. ;)

    Blessings to you!
