What does God say about me?

Posted in Uplifting with 18 comments

Sometimes, before we can even look at what God says about marriage,we have to look at what God says about us individually. The more confident we are in how God sees us, the more confident we will be as a husband or wife.

I was in great need of a reminder of His love today, and a reminder of who I am as His child. I did what all great theologians do and simply typed in to Google: “What does God say about me?” As you can imagine, many links appeared, but there was one I really enjoyed as it simply listed 100 points of who I am and what God thinks of me.

    That’s a handy list. I think my mom has it saved on her computer and she’s yelled those things at me when I’ve been all woeful and whining about life. Yelled them at me? Yes. :)

    Thank you so much. I do volunteer ministry at a juvenile detention center, and the kids love this list. Whenever I read it to them they get a “wow” look in their eyes. I always make it clear that it’s not mine :) YOU have done good things for those kids with this list.

    Thanks Erin!
    This is such an important list.
    I’ve heard it said by Bill Johnson that we can’t afford to have a single thought about ourselves that God doesn’t have about us. I’d have to say that the implications of that would be far reaching.
