Other things come out of me too, though. Fears. Insecurities. Negative thoughts. I have to fight hard to withstand the magnetic pull of the negative tide. I reach out to grasp onto a life-line before I am swept away in the downpour.
"You created my innermost being. You knit me together in my mother's womb. Your eyes saw my unformed body. Your works are wonderful - I know that full well..."
Just as my children are precious to me, just as they take my breath away, bring a warm glow to my heart and make the pain worthwhile with their sweet kisses... so I am precious to my Creator.
I must remember that my Father dotes over me just as I dote over my kids.
Sure I get mad/frustrated/disappointed with them at times - as I'm sure He does with me. But do I for even a second stop loving them?? Would I trade them? Would I wish them away for all the hard work and pain and tears they bring me? Never.
If you offered me A Million - A Billion - in exchange for one of my children, would I take it?? Never!
They are beyond price.
And so am I. And so are you.
