This past Sunday at church, our pastor said something that the Holy Spirit used to strike my heart. He mentioned Deuteronomy 26:18 that says we are a treasured possession to the Lord.
When I think of a treasured possession, I think of
something of great value
something that I hold dear to my heart
something that just the thought of brings me joy
and a smile to my face
Oh how I need to hear that sometimes. I struggle to break free from the idea that what I am TO God depends on what I do FOR God. I am so thankful that it is so much simpler than that!
My husband Kyle has spent the past 6 months telling me how much he loves me, how grateful he is for me, how blessed he is because of me…and that I’m precious and of great worth.
These two paths have intersected for me this week. Marriage is a picture of Jesus and His bride, the Church (Ephesians 5:22-33).
I am especially aware of the gift I have in my husband and in our marriage; that he affirms in daily life the heart of God towards me. Thank you Jesus!
And thank you Kyle for loving me in a way that makes my heart more tender to God!
