It doesn’t matter what painful baggage you carry, why others have ill-informed opinions about you or how complicated life is. You are a beloved child of God. This isn’t just pie-in-the-sky thinking that will be true at some distant time in the future. It’s a fact right now for one simple reason: God guarantees it. So do whatever it takes to grab hold of the identity God is longing for you to live. Sure, it may threaten to turn your well-ordered life upside down. But that’s okay. In fact, it may actually be the best thing that could ever happen because it will help you realize that God doesn’t just hold your life together with bailing wire, bubble gum and duct tape so you can keep experiencing more of what you’re already experiencing. God plants you firmly in the heart of God. Which is exactly where God has created you to live for all eternity – beginning right now.
