Because You Love Me!

It's Tremendously Thankful Thoroughly Thoughtful Thursday! One thing I have learned about giving thanks is that when we are thankful for the littlest of things, we appreciate everything to a much greater extent. Life becomes both abundant and joyous for somehow your eyes are opened wider to the things of importance in life. Loving one another.

The other day, Jeffrey and I were out doing laundry. In the midst of it all, I asked him if he knew how cute he was. He smiled and said, "Yes." I then asked him how he knew and he said, "Because you love me so much you always say I'm super cute." I laughed both because he was right and in his confidence of how much I love him, he truly is super cute. This is how we should believe our Father views us. To him, we are "super cute". There is a part of me to my very core that believes that. I have heard the rumbling chuckle of a Father tickled to his very core as a child.

As I drove the children to school this morning, I heard this song on K-Love: "Remind Me Who I Am" by Jason Gray


"Remind Me Who I Am"
When I lose my way,
And I forget my name,
Remind me who I am.
In the mirror all I see,
Is who I don't wanna be,
Remind me who I am.
In the loneliest places,
When I can't remember what grace is.

Tell me once again who I am to You,
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You.
To You.

When my heart is like a stone,
And I'm running far from home,
Remind me who I am.
When I can't receive Your love,
Afraid I'll never be enough,
Remind me who I am.
If I'm Your beloved,
Can You help me believe it.

Tell me once again who I am to You,
Who I am to You, whoa.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You.
That I belong to You.
To You.

I'm the one you love,
I'm the one you love,
That will be enough,
I'm the one you love.

Tell me once again who I am to You.
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You, oh.

Tell me once again who I am to You.
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You.
To You.

As I listened I thought about Jeffrey and his confidence that both God and I love him to pieces. I then realized there have been times in my life where my confidence in God's love for me is so great I have that same sureness about it all as Jeffrey does. However, we all have those days where we could really use a show of his hand in our lives. Evidence that He hears and sees us. We long for him to remind us how much he loves us just like Jeffrey eats it up when I tell him that God and I love him to smithereens. 

Today, if you find yourself connecting with the words to this song, I pray you feel the LORD God's love for you. I pray your eyes are opened to the blessings he provides for you. I pray you begin to seek the LORD God's will in your life and I pray that you are able to hear Him when He speaks to you. I pray that the veil the evil one places upon the children of God is demolished all around you. I pray you find comfort in the truth of God's Word and that you seek what He has to say about you daily.
