Not A Mistake

 Maybe today you need to know…

You are not a mistake. You are fearfully and wonderfully, says the Psalmist in #139. We are made, male and female, in the image of God. God breathed His very own breath and being into our bodies and gave us life. He gave us His Son Jesus so we could have eternal life – a forever life connected most intimately to Him. Rest in this truth.

Beloved, you are NOT a mistake. Your life has meaning and purpose. Choose to believe this beautiful truth. God loves you fiercely. Nothing, and I mean nothing you do is going to make Him love you less.

God wants relationship you. It’s true. You matter to Him, so come to His table. All are welcome. Your missteps, wrong turns, u-turns, down turns, foolishness, upsets, or inabilities can’t can’t keep you from the love of God.

Affirm this truth today. Settle it deep in the marrow of your bones. I don’t know what hurts you’ve suffered, but I do know that God cares for you and about you in ways that defy human understanding. Let Him heal your hurts and boo boos. He’s a good, good Father. Whatever your soul needs, you’ll find it in God. You will find immeasurable rest in Christ.
