Hello creative friends, welcome!
Do you know that God not only loves you but He actually chose you? As in, He had a choice? If you are part of God’s family through Jesus Christ it means that you were adopted by God by choice. He didn’t just get stuck with you or forced to love you because you are His child. No! He chose you because He wanted to and it gave Him great pleasure!! Think about this the next time you are down and think that God merely tolerates you… or am I the only one who ever feels this way?? Ephesians 1:4-5 in the NLT translation says “Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.”
I feel like I need to repeat this… He chose you AND IT GAVE HIM GREAT PLEASURE!!! Are you listening to me? Sweet one, before the foundation of the world, God already loved you and HE PICKED YOU! I hope this message goes deep deep down into your soul and spirit today. I hope you will meditate on this truth and let it sink from your head to your heart. Why? Because you probably know all this in your head. You might even have this scripture memorized. But does your heart know it? Does your heart believe it? I really hope it does because if it doesn’t, I suspect you don’t feel loved at all.
For this page I felt the word chosen had to be loudest of all! Since my preference is usually not to cover biblical text I only adhere the part of the printable that fits in the margin. All pieces that cover text can be flipped up. Again, it’s just preference. I don’t read or study in this bible. I bought it specifically for art, for getting creative with the Lord…and I cherish this time with Him!
