We will never fully follow Christ until we know in our hearts, He loves us for who we are as a person and desires to fulfill us as the individual He has created us to be.
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore, with lovingkindness have I drawn you.
For I know the thoughts I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with You.
You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.
Psalms 40:5 (ESV)
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows.
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that he would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power by His Spirit in the inner man: that Christ may dwell in your heart by faith; that you being rooted and grounded (planted) in love, may be able to comprehend (understand) with all saints how wide, how long, how deep, how high; and to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God. Now unto Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above (beyond) that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be glory in the Church by Jesus Christ throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
And we have known and believed the love that God has to us. God is love, and he that lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16
Each of us has been created as none other before us or after us: unique and special. We are precious and beautiful in the eyes of our God.
