Messages of worth and love

You are loved.

You are needed.

You have a holy origin.

You are made in the image and likeness of God, good.

You are special. God delights in you. She rejoices that She made you.

These are the messages that matter.

Wouldn’t it be great if instead of advertisements of sexuality, violence, and disease that run rampant in today’s media that we are instead reminded of our inherent worth as God’s image and likeness? Wouldn’t it be nice to receive reminders and affirmations to love one another and see the child of God in each of us? Just as we treat children with such tenderness, we can also nurture the child within each of us that hopes for and desires the eternal love of an all good Mom/Dad, that Jesus called “Abba”, Daddy.

You are sinless, you are eternal. Reminding ourselves of how our Creator makes us and sees us enables us to be a healer everyday, whether we are participating in larger actions of restorative justice or simply being faithful over the little things we can do each day.

We are made to heal because we reflect the heart of God. We are made to bind up the brokenhearted. We are made to wash each others feet with our tears.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
Isaiah 61:1 ESV

Live distraction free 

I’ve decided the best gift I can give my son is to live free from distraction. I love to be free of mental clutter…the crowding wants and woes that leave little room to feel divine Spirit.

Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into newness of life…*

We all want to feel that freshness that comes like spring.

How do we bring that delight, childlikeness and joy into each moment? By silencing the push and pull of materialism. By declaring that you have the right to be free from mental burden and distraction. By knowing that distraction is not coming from your Maker.

So, instead, take this moment to turn wholeheartedly to God. Give your children and your true selfhood your whole attention and focus. Experience joy and freshness like children do. Watch how that simple joy can expand and fill your heart with delight.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.**

You are mine  

“You are mine” and “You are special”. Sweet books by Max Lucado that we read to our little one. They are sweet because they remind us that what the world says of us can’t really stick if we don’t believe it. We can daily listen to our Maker, the Creator of the universe, that tells us how perfect, special and good He made us. 

There is a lot of noise in the world. Clanging cymbals of doubt, lack, remorse, uncertainty. But we can counteract this by dwelling in the “secret place of the Most High”, listening to the thoughts that God gives us. 

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.*

God has only good for you and that goodness exists right now within you. Good is the truth about you now and forever. 

The Bible tells about the disciples hearts that burning within them while they talked with Jesus (as he illuminated the Scriptures to them). 

Don’t we all want out hearts to burn within us through an inspiration and spiritual understanding? God says “before you were in the womb, I knew you” and “the very hairs on your head are all numbered.”

Each of us is infinitely valued, needed and special to God. Each us has an individuality that is safe and pure. Each of us is spiritual, made in the image and likeness of Life and Love itself. 

*Jeremiah 29:11
