The last time I’d been to Green Lake was forty years ago! What in the world? How did that happen? Naturally, nothing was as I remembered. Some things were older, some were new, some things had been moved, and other things (the outdoor pool I wandered around looking for until someone finally told me it had been covered over and filled in with dirt) were gone altogether.
Time marches on. Things change. And we get used to that.
So, it’s hard to believe it when someone says God loves us just the way we are. He always has.
He always will.
No matter what.
No marching on. No changing. Not from God. We are His.
Do you know that? Do you know He’s not changing His mind about you? Do you know God loves you, exactly the way you are right now. Yes. Just like that. And He has moved heaven and earth for you. For me. For us. He has redeemed you. He has called you by name.
Here’s something I don’t usually do: Today only, from 11am until 3pm (Central Time), DaySpring has this beautiful necklace on sale for just $5. It’s the Redeemed – I Am His Necklace*. On the back you’ll see the inscription, “I am His.” Because sometimes we need a reminder. We need to know the promise hasn’t been covered over and filled in with dirt.
Share the promise with a friend, a neighbor, a sister. If you click through and find yourself buying five or more (or any other combination of items that add up to $25 or more), don’t forget to use this special, top-secret (kidding!) coupon code to receive free shipping: shipping25.
So tell me, how does it feel to know you’ll always be loved, just because you’re you?
