Seeing Myself as God Does...

Photo: "We ..."feel" our innocence as we believe in and meditate more and more on Christ Jesus and what God has made possible thru Him as He has judged us all innocent~~... this message of our innocence is~~~like crystal clear clean water washing us~~like rain from heaven.... The God-life~~is now MY-life~~and I live daily with the identity-of-Jesus-the-Son-of-God so that I effortlessly FEEL MY innocence everyday--- this great gift is TOO MUCH for words to adequately express……..I am overflowing with joy unspeakable and FULL of God’s viewpoint and opinion of me!!! :)♥"    Gwen Lilly

God is re-forming my image of myself! 

For as long as I can remember, my image of myself, the picture I have of myself in my mind, has been someone who is worthless, ugly, defective, unacceptable, unlovable, bad, and shameful. Terrible and dark image! 

Yet God is washing over me in LOVE and showing me the real, true self He made me to be and that I AM in Christ. 

He had this real and true me, the new creation, in His mind and heart before the world's foundation, saw me and loved me and chose me way back then as His beloved, wanted child! He chose me before He planned creation, chose me to be His blameless, beautiful, dearly loved little child! 

 That is the new self image He is putting into my mind, that is the real me, that is the true self - true for me and true for us all - let's all see ourselves and embrace ourselves, AS HE DOES, as His innocent little ones, showered with His love and affection at all times!  Let's sing and dance and truly be carefree, because we are His beautiful and precious children, under His constant and tender care!

[In His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.
For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]—
[So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.                                        Eph. 1:4-6    AMP

  1. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your
    theme? Excellent work!
