Some days the weight of this life crushes my spirit and I forget that I was not made to carry it. Some days I wake up with the mind set that I need to earn my value and work for approval, love. Too often I forget that my Father has lavished me love, that He chooses to call me His child.
When we walk in the assurance of the Truth of this verse, we walk with peace. We carry a light heart. We experience the fullness of joy. We no longer attempt to count our value through accomplishments and tasks; if we did, we would fall short every time. Is it not the best gift, love lavished upon us, no strings attached?
Today, remember and know that you are deeply loved exactly how you are. You are valued because of Jesus. You are known and you are adopted into the most beautiful family there is. You have the best, most forgiving Dad imaginable. He is pleased with you.
Let's memorize this verse this week, internalizing it and walking in it's freedom!
