Today I was also reading Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge. I'm enjoying it just like Monica. There have been lots of parts that have really spoken to me, but today I was thinking on just how much God adores us. He does, by the way, if you aren't sure. He adores you. ADORE. That's a big word. I adore my daughter. She makes me smile ALL the time. She makes me laugh. There will never be anyone who can take her place. I adore my husband. I adore my friends. I even adore some good chocolate. :)
In Captivating, they mention that we often know and talk about that there is a space in our hearts that only God can fill. But it also brings up this point. Did you know that there is a space in God's heart that only you can fill?
You my friend, "are the one that overwhelms his heart with just 'one glance of your eyes' (Song 4:9b) You are the one he sings over with delight and logs to dance with across mountain tops and ballroom floors (Zeph 3:17) You are the one who takes his breath way by your beautiful heart that, against all odds, hopes in him. "
Are you reading this right? Our God who made every single thing in this universe. Who made the heavens and the earth loves you. He has a special place in his heart just for you. No one could ever replace you. You are adore-able in His eyes. I mess up, I forget, I am not worthy, but I am adored and there is no one that will ever take my place in His heart. I love that. I hope you do too.
