There is a place where all our strivings cease..it's in His eyes of love! We look into those eyes that have been adoring us from before the creation of the world, and we see that all we ever wanted we already have in Him - all the love, acceptance, security, friendship, understanding and belonging we could ever want is in Him! And we see ourselves as He does - perfect, innocent, beautiful, flawless! And all the struggles to 'become' somebody better just cease, because we already ARE! We already ARE all God ever wanted us to be! We are just like Jesus to Him! God isn't struggling with us today! He is looking at us as He always has and always will, with perfect delight, absolute affection, and unending joy! You make His heart sing! Let's never listen to any lie that would tell us otherwise! Let's see ourselves as He has seen us since before He even made the world! We are the treasure of His heart! We make His heart flutter! He holds us, He protects us, He understands us, He celebrates us! We are His PRIDE and JOY!
ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own
through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in
his eyes, without a single fault—we who stand before him covered with
his love. His
unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by
sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And he did this because he wanted
to! E[ph. 1:4-6 Living Bible
