Here's a lovely a photo taken by my daughter..recently we were walking in a local public garden and I saw this and asked her to take a picture of it..and just wanted to share it here with you all...what a wonderful grace thought to share with the world!
Sometimes it's hard to believe how wonderful, good, beautiful, sweet
and amazing we are, isn't it? It has been for me. I had heard for so
long what a sinful and terrible person I was, had so much shame and
self-hatred going through my mind. Yet all along God was whispering to
me how beautiful and good and perfect I was and am! I think of the
cross and how it proved, not only His love for us, but also our
innocence and perfection before Him. He justified us not in His eyes so
much as in our own eyes! He vindicated us, proved our worth and purity
and belovedness and righteousness! The stamp of our innocence was the
resurrection, verifying that we truly were and are righteous and holy in
His sight, without flaw, blameless, perfect and beloved, His very own
darling children in whom He is well-pleased!
What a relief to find out
we are good, innocent little ones!
What a relief to find out we are wonderful
and even magnificent!
What a relief to find out we are created in His holy image of LOVE!
