He Says I'm Beautiful
My entire life I have put my trust in man, I have found significance in people, I have easily turned to the counsel of man before turning to that of my Heavenly Father, and I have let the way people treat me dictate how I feel.
Why do I continually do so when My Heavenly Father thinks so highly of me not because of what I've done, what I've failed to do, what I look like, or anything else but because of who He is and what He has done.
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus! .
Those who put their trust in mere men will be disappointed in life. Those who turn to people for strength rather than to Me will not find what they are truly seeking.
They are like shrubs that live in the desert with absolutely no means to survive and no hope to continue living. But those that put their trust in and find their significance in Me, the only One Who will never disappoint, will only be blessed beyond measure. They will have true confidence and hope as they walk throughout their days. Joy will be theirs’ and nothing will be able to take that from them.
They will be like trees that are found on the bank of a river with deep roots and a continual wellspring of rich water. Heat never bothers them and months of drought have no effect on their condition.
Think of such a life! It can be yours if you simply trust Me.
Man will disappoint you. It’s a fact of life. But this is what I say: You are so beautiful, oh daughter of Mine… Do you know how often I think about you? You could never count the times in a day that my mind is fixed on you. If you tried, it would be the same as trying to count every single grain of sand found on the face of this earth. That is how special you are to Me. You truly are precious.
Did you know that even before your parents thought of a name for you, I had already called you: “My Beloved One”. I love you dearly. Keep your mind fixed on these truths for, unlike man's, My opinion of you will never change.
