May this revised, previously posted entry bless you, dear friend.
I saw a video clip that had me laughing until tears poured from my eyes. It was of some tiny bunny rabbits, each trying to sleep in a separate drinking glass.
One bunny never moved; he was sound asleep. Another used his two front teeth as leverage on the rim to keep from slipping down into the glass. One kept touching his nose to the two rabbits near him, and then trying to get comfortable. Those bunnies were the cutest things!
I can’t help it. I love animals so much – especially the cute furry ones. Just thinking of them makes me smile. If I had my way, I would be surrounded by them all the time.
We all know how different we are. God created each of us to be different, but it’s deeper than that. The things we are attracted to, the things that delight us, are special gifts from our Heavenly Father to show His lovely nature.
We bring Him joy, just by being who we are. The Lord is delighted with us in the same way we are delighted in our own children. We appreciate how even twins have different personalities.
You may not feel unique. You may not feel like there is anything about you that delights anyone. My friend, please understand that there will never be another you. Ever. There are qualities in you that bear the fingerprints of God.
Our dear brother Paul said that we are God’s workmanship (Eph. 2:10, from the Greek poiēma meaning a product, a fabric, a workmanship). In other words, we are something made by the Master Craftsman.
You have been woven together in such a way that you are truly priceless – above price, irreplaceable.
And my friend, He loves you! Your Heavenly Father has good for you. He wants good for you. He will do good for and to you. How do I know this? Because that is what He has done for me, and because I know Him.
As precious John (the disciple whom Jesus loved) said, “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5 NKJV)
Do you know what that means to me? It means I can expect only light and goodness from my Heavenly Father in Christ Jesus. That is what it means.
And that is what it can mean to you too, dearly beloved of our Heavenly Father.
