Today we are turning another page in the story of grace. And while I am working on a new blogging rhythm, I wanted to share with you what has been on my heart. I spent some time in prayer seeking the Lord for the direction of this blog because I know it is either just a good thing or it is a God thing.
This month is the beginning of a holiday season when we practice gratitude and focus on the gift of Jesus. And the thing that stands out to me as we go into the season is how many of us may be feeling like we’re just not sure of our worth.
Maybe we’re feeling a little less than deserving of any of the good things we’ve grown to expect from the holidays, even love and acceptance. Or maybe we are wondering if we have anything of value to give. Some of us may be in the midst of trials that have us questioning whether our efforts are even worth it.
See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 1 JOHN 3:1 AMP
