He Loves me Just the Way I am, What Better Love than His

Dear Brides: Many days I thought, what can I do for fix this, or fix that in my outward appearance? We are fixed with the society of the world that you can get a quick fix to your imperfections. We are all uniquely made. We are each endangered species. No two are alike. Jeremiah 31:3 says: The Lord appeared to us in the past saying “I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.

Song of Solomon 1:15 is my favorite bible verse. “How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves”. This scripture is meaningful because it describes how much my Lord loves me and how beautiful I am to him.

I was recently complaining to the Lord about my weight, what should I do etc. I will be 50 this year. The Lord is giving me wisdom and showing me that no matter what he loves me just the way I am. He’s been showing me to eat healthier since I have to take care of my body.  The Lord revealed, just eat healthier and take care of your health. I Love that no matter what he loves me just the way I am and what better love than his.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18  “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. This is meaningful to me because the Lord sees the condition of the heart, the unseen. I love that we are being renewed day by day for better.

Pray with me: Lord, I thank you for your mercy and grace that is new every day. Lord, forgive me for my insecurities regarding my outward appearance. You love me in spite of them and I thank you. You make all things new, including me. Lord, thank you for being gracious to me. You are all that I want, all that I need and I want to live for you and your kingdom. Thank you for your word that is alive and sharp. Sometimes I read your word and say ouch. Your ways are always better and I long to live for you and continue to draw closer to you.

Dear Brides: This Chapter 14 “You’re Beautiful!!” was phenomenal. We are beautiful in the eyes of the Lord. Even when we think of our imperfections and complain, the Lord says Linda which means beautiful. Song of Solomon 1:8, 15 says “If you do not know, most beautiful of women..How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Wow, that is unconditional love from your HH.

This book in phenomenal. The principles which are all based on the Word of the living God brings hope. The Lord loves you and is longing to be gracious to us. Bring all your burdens to him for he cares for you and is the only one with the answers.
