This has been a week of asking some pretty big questions!
…How am I getting to know God better?
…How am I standing in the gap for my Girlfriends and their needs?
I am grateful for these questions that God has put on my heart, and…
…when I start asking myself these questions, it is easy to feel discouraged.
(“Sigh. Shouldn’t I be better / more ‘spiritual’ by now?”)
Good grief. We’re always trying to measure up to a standard that “they” set, aren’t we?
So today I’m finding encouragement in this verse:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)
YES! That’s all the encouragement I need. God has called me. I am his.
Here’s the deal.
God loves you. No matter what. Always.
And because He loves you, He loves your questions. He sees your heart.
He doesn’t ask you to be better or more spiritual…He asks you to come to Him just as you are. With your questions.
So, dear friend. I invite you to accept this gift…
God has called you by name. You are his.
Have a fabulous weekend!
