He wants you to know…

A long time ago—well actually…not too long ago, in the grand scheme of things…

I couldn’t see God as a “tenderhearted God”…

I couldn’t see God as a “proud Father” who was “pleased, and proud of me“…

Because I couldn’t see that I was His “daughter” that He loved.

And when that began to change,

when the distortion began to clear up…

EVERYTHING began to change.

“…As His Daughter, He is proud of me, He is pleased with how He made me to be, in Christ.”

The Lord is pleased with those who worship him and trust his love.” —Psalm 147:11

“See how very much our Father loves us, for He calls us his children, and that is what we are!”—1 John 3:1

And this revelation is still sinking in,

deeper and deeper,

in different ways—different areas of my heart

as this truth becomes more and more real to me in my own life.

“…nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”—Romans 8:39 AMP

Is it hard for you to believe that God is proud of YOU?

Son or Daughter, know… that He is a tenderhearted Father who is SO proud of YOU.

He’s pleased with YOU.

He’s pleased with exactly the way He designed you to be.

And He’s even pleased with every area of “weakness” within you,

because He’s already made plans to fill your weaknesses with His strength and power!

Ask Him to clear away the misconceptions and the lies so that you can see

just how much He loves you

and just how much He is pleased, and proud to call you

His own. 💖

He wants you to know. 💝
