What is it about you that God loves?

Is it your quick wit or great creativity?
Perhaps it’s your work ethic and attention to detail.
Truthfully, it’s probably none of the above.
Yes, He gave you those talents and strengths; He is pleased when you invest in them and use them for Him…
But that isn’t what He loves about you.

Is it your ability to relate to children?
Your service at Church and in your community?

No. Those are good, but they aren’t what He loves about you.

The answer?
He loves you. He loves that you are one of His precious people, personally conceived and created by Him.
He loves that you are one for whom Jesus died and rose;
He looks at you and says that you are a spitting image of Himself.
Papa God loves you in the same way that we love babies: They don’t do much; they eat, drink, poop, cry and sleep; yet we coo over them and adore them. We admire their soft hair, little hands and feet; we remark at how they look like Mama or Papa; we take turns holding them.
God loves you, just because…
You’re you.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
