Remembering Who I Am: I Am Loved

As the year draws to a close, we want to remember what God has shown us throughout 2014. He is so good to continue to remind us of our identity in Christ. Please feel free to share with us what He has shown you this year.

Knowing I am Loved:

“I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width and height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19, HCS

Pursued by Love

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found [it], he lays [it] on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together [his] friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!” Luke 15:4-6 NKJV

I am Loved by God, I must Love Others

“This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us.  We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but shuts off him compassion from him–how can God’s love reside in him? Little children, me must not love in word or speech, but in deed and truth.”  1 John 3:16

Loved with Joy

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, he will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.” Zephaniah 3:17 NKJV

    A timely post, with Thanksgiving looming on the horizon. A time to be thankful and a time to reflect without the added pressure of making or keeping New Year’s Resolutions. 🙂 What to be thankful for this year? Keeping it to three… 1) The next chapter in my grown children’s lives is playing out and I get to see God at work in their lives. 2) A new home with great neighbors that is feeling like home sweet home now. 3) God continues to remove fear and instill trust so that I have new adventures with him, outside my comfort zone.

      Yes, sometimes remembering is as valuable as forging ahead, and it provides a pasture of rest! I love those reasons for gratitude, I can echo them. And it’s so wonderful to think of this life as an adventure with our King. 🙂 thank you for sharing your thoughts this morning.
