To be known by God….

  But if one loves God truly…[with affectionate reverence, prompt obedience, and grateful recognition of His blessing], he is known by God [recognized as worthy of His intimacy and love, and he is owned by Him]. ~1 Corinthians 8:3~   If you love God, you are KNOWN by God. Of course He knows us all. He knows about us all but the knowing referred to here I think is one of relationship. A commentary I read says of ‘known of him’ means: “is known of him — is known with the knowledge of approval and is acknowledged by God as His (Psalm 1:6; Gal 4:9; 2 Tim 2:19). To love God is to know God; and he who thus knows God has been first known by God (compare 1 Cor 13:12; 1 Pet 1:2). I want to know Him and be KNOWN by Him him! ~Cam Richmond~ My sites: www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage…

I am beloved…

~ I am beloved~

I am beloved…

God calls us His beloved…. Yes I always knew this and I accepted it. But I think there is a lot more to it than I realise.

Do I feel like his beloved? What a beautiful beautiful word. Do I feel like anyone’s beloved? I know I feel loved… but beloved… that is a term that goes far deeper and is an intimate way of referring to us.  Are we ‘that’ loved?

We are beloved. I am taking time to ponder this wondrous thought, because as I said I know I am loved and I can accept it, but do I really believe it or know it? I was thinking today about people who are always apologising for things, and although I don’t do it as much as some. I do apologise for a lot of things… ‘Oh I am sorry I was in your way’, ‘Oh sorry I should have done that’….When people make time for me, especially busy people, well most people really, I find myself telling them ‘please don’t trouble yourself’, ‘its ok really, don’t worry about it’, ‘I can do that later’, ‘I know you are busy, I don’t want to waste your time’.

Does any of this sound familiar? Then imagine being so loved that you didn’t need to say any of this?

If we felt more secure and sure of ourselves, if we KNEW where we stood we wouldn’t need to add all those apologetic one liners to our conversations.

This is our position with Father God. Of course we have deep respect, reverence and honour for Him but our relationship with Him is muticoloured. And there also exists this beautiful space where we are His beloved.

He loves us limitlessly, totally, he is LOVE, imagine LOVE loving US! He doesnt hold anything back. He wants to be with us, to SHARE our life, our story, our journey. He longs to be a part of our story.

Even when we dont know He is there he is there in our story. We NEVER have to apologise for taking His time. Yes he is a busy God but He is always available and longs to make time for us.

I long to have a true revelation of this, to really understand the height the depth and the breadth of His love for me.

I am His beloved…
I AM His Beloved…
I am treasured…
I am valued and precious…
I am desired…
I am loved…
I am greatly loved, dear to His heart…
I am wanted…

There is no place that He would rather be than with me <3

He wants me as much as I want true heart fellowship and deep and priceless connection with people.
There’s something that He can get from me that he can’t get from anyone else…
This is how he loves me…. and you!

Just something to think about!

Known…

O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off. You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have beset me and shut me in–behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it. ~Psalm 139:1-6~ Known… Oh I am so relieved that there is one who KNOWS me! One thing that I always long for is to be understood and for people to know me. When they don’t in the past it has troubled me but now I understand that this is not always to be…

When I Need Love…

When I was many years younger I don’t think I knew what it was truly like to feel loved and accepted. I knew my parents loved me but I don’t think they knew how to show it. I was so desperate for love and affection and acceptance and that feeling of peace and safety that we all long for. I grew up in a dysfunctional family and there wasn’t much peace in that house. I found this love and acceptance in and with other people that God had placed around me at that time, and although I was well into my teens by then, I was still like a little child, hungry for that love and peace, and the space to just be myself and not feel any tension or that I just didn’t meet up to certain standards. I think this was probably the point at which I transferred my…
