Do you know what are you to God’s heart?
Enthralling! Captivating! That’s what!
You are the light in His day.
The song upon His lips.
Don’t believe me? Don’t feel like it?
In this harsh world, sometimes loneliness sets in. Grief strikes a blow. Fear or doubt invades your heart. Or discouragement overwhelms the soul.
No one sees or appreciates your hard work. All the bazillion things you struggle to do each day. The work you do to maintain a sane life.
Well, let me tell you there’s a multitude of us locking arms with the army host of heaven, God’s angels, surrounding you with cheers of encouragement, voices saying, “Keep going. Don’t look around at others. You’re doing great! You’re amazing!”
All your efforts matter. Your dedication counts. Your service is valuable. You make a difference, even if you cannot see it or feel it. Your life is important in this world. To others. To God.
Whenever you doubt or feel afraid or insecure, it means you’ve momentarily forgotten how deeply you’re loved. How greatly you are needed and appreciated. And how mighty God can provide.
God’s heart depends on you…
He depends on you to be obedient to carry out His Word and His will.
You are a special creation and no one else can do what you can.
Someone waits for an encouraging message that can only flow through you.
Even if it’s just a smile.
God’s heart longs for you…
He longs to whisper sweet words of relief and peace to your distressed soul.
He waits in anticipation as a father waits for his child to sit near him and put their head in his lap.
He glories in your praise and thanksgiving, to be worshipped from your heart of love and adoration.
He craves your purity.
He savors and saves your every tear.
He values you as if there were none other.
He takes pleasure in answering your precious prayers.
He rejoices in you, just because you’re you!
He yearns for your devoted heart of love to put Him first.
He woos you when you’ve turned away from His sacred path.
He relishes in your companionship, even in your silence in His presence.
…hurts when you hurt.
…weeps when you weep.
…suffers when you suffer.
…and longs to comfort you in your pain.
God will pull you up out of the brink of disaster or out of the pit of self-pity.
He kneels with you in prayer, knowing the answers and the right timing, working out the Father’s will and purpose.
He wraps His loving arms around you in your most trying days, knows your heartache and weeping, for He’s felt the burn of tears against His cheeks.
He is there for you when you heart breaks into a bazillion pieces and will put them back together again, mending them in love, wrapping them in comfort, kissing them with peace.
You are precious beyond compare. Jesus says to you, “Come unto Me. Leave your burdens with Me and turn to go out into the world with a lightened heart and smile upon your face.
“Come unto Me. Bring your arid and thirsty soul and dip into My well of Living Waters. Drink until you are satisfied. And return to drink every day.”
May your spirit know the Christ who loves you so much that He suffered blank that you would be brought into His Kingdom to live with Him for eternity.
Keep going! You’re amazing!
Blessings of God’s heart to you…Lynn
