What if you looked in the mirror and smiled?
Instead of counted gray hairs and wrinkles.
What if you read a love letter today?
One written to you. A thousand years ago.
God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!
What if you believed it?
What if you counted the number of times God says that He is with you? With you. Not sometimes, not when you’ve got it all together. Not when you’ve lost that weight, succeeded at that job, tamed that child.
Just with you. Period. (280 times!!)
What if you remembered and were kind to yourself – because you are a child of God?
Beautiful, called, named, beloved.
