In my worship time, I was inspired and wrote part of this. The other half is from Misty Edwards’s “I Knew What I Was Getting Into” song.
Oh, how our Father loves us! We are so loved and adored by Him. We can withstand ANY storm with His great love sheltering us!
Read this and listen to God’s love for you!
Daughter, I love you.
You may feel lonely, but you are never alone.
I never leave you or forsake you.
You may feel like you are unworthy, but I value you.
I made you, and you are my masterpiece.
You are holy and blameless in my sight.
Maybe no one else sees you this way, and you certainly don’t see yourself this way, but I do.
I have covered you with the blood of my Son, and you are holy and blameless in my sight.
I speak only good words over you.
Let them sink into those wounds where you have been hurt and let them heal.
It’s the healing balm.
My words are medicine to your heart. Let them do their work.
See yourself as I see you.
I chose you still
I knew what I was getting into and I still like you
I know your frame
And I remember that you are but dust
But I know where this is going
When I called you
I don’t regret it
I am not shocked or put off by your struggle
I am not disgusted or ashamed of you
I knew what I was getting into when I chose you
And I said,
“She’s my vessel, she’s my chosen one”
You see, it’s not about you
It’s all about me
I chose you and that’s enough
And I’m gonna bring you forth in love
I’m gonna bring you to the end in strength
Cause I see strength in you
When all that you can see inside of you is your own weakness
Oh, but I see the end from the beginning
And I know where this is going
And you’ve barely just begun
But you see,
So few will ever fight the good fight
At least you’re fighting
I see righteousness in you
I’ve clothed you with the blood of my Son
And it’s enough
It’s enough, it’s enough
Why are you trying to get in a room you’re already in?
I know you better than you know yourself
And you say “yes” and so few do
Dare to believe
I know you’re disappointed with the way your life is coming down
And bitterness is trying to bind you like a plague
You’re not a project to make me look good
There’s more than only mercy working here
I don’t just feel sorry for you
You’re the object of my affection
You’re the center of my world
You are the apple of my eye
I want you
I want you
I love you
I like you
I delight in you
Father, You are good. Flood the eyes of our hearts so we can know You more deeply and intimately. We pray that You would root and establish us deep in love. May we have the power, together, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is Your love.
Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You. We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him
endured the cross, scorning its shame,
and sat down at the right hand
of the throne of God.
(Hebrews 12:2 NIV)
