How Awesome is our God that he loves us, and calls us his and has "made" us his children!!! God has lavished his love upon me! However the sad truth is I get busy with my day to day activities, worries, and frustrations fill me mind, I loose my focus on God and before long I have forgotten what makes me special! I wish I could say this is not the case, but I have realized that people we are fickle!!!! Everything is so relative in our life!! Last week it was 40 degrees - that was cold!!! BURR!!!!
Now Saturday's low is to be 1 degree- (yes, I did type that correctly) now we think that is cold, and we long for 40 degree weather again!!! Well I believe that when we allow ourselves to be overscheduled, overwhelmed, and consumed by what this world says is important and what makes us important- we forget!!! We forget what it is that really makes us important!!! We forget whose we are!! We are like the children of Israelites who God delivered from Egypt started grumbling saying "why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children die of thirst?" Exodus 17:3 The same people who witnessed!! The plagues, and the parting of the Red Sea!!! These people walked through the parted sea onto dry land and they were grumbling whose they were and if they would be provided for! I always thought they were so ungrateful!! Until God showed me, I am the same way!!! I forget what makes me special is God! I ended up acting and looking just like this little girl all down and pouty wearing my tiara- how quickly I forget God's love!
I think we need to visually remind ourselves whose we are, and why we are special, and some days we need to even be reminded that we are special! I have a girlfriend who bought me a special mug that says "Princess with Attitude! Daughter of the King 1 John 3:1" What a great reminder but I am sad to say, some morning I drink my coffee and go "yeah, right" you see my memory is fickle everything is relative and because I don't "feel" loved and special I forget! Well those are the days I need to spend a little more time with God in prayer or in bible study so that he can remind me. The other day another friend used a picture of the two of us together for her profile picture - I was so surprised! You know how that made me feel? You guessed it,-it made me feel special! Why? because she showed me and reminded me I am important to her. Don't miss out on the opportunity to let God show you and remind you how important you are to him today.
