Ok, so here goes. It’s Five Minute Friday time, and today’s prompt is: Favorite. Tonight during our twitter party we were talking about just letting go and writing with freedom! Five Minute Friday is meant to be a free write, which means no overthinking, no major edits, etc. So, tonight, I’m really going to try to just write whatever comes to mind! Moving from fear to freedom, like my blogging buddy Karrilee said tonight.
By the way, come join us at Kate’s place! It’s lots of fun.
3, 2, 1. Favorite.
You know what? You, graceful mama, are God’s favorite. Oh yes, I said it. You are His favorite! Do you feel the love behind it? He fashioned you and created you just to be His friend, so you could enjoy each other always. He sees you as beautiful, as perfect… His perfect one. Just like the Song of Solomon says, He is madly in love with you–His bride!
Yes, you are His favorite.
And so am I.
That one thing I am confident in. When the world seems to be against me, I know God is on my side. I know He is for me, and as long as He’s with me, I’m going to be okay. I’m going to be more than okay, I’m going to come out on top!
I once had a lady kind of freak out on me because I said I was God’s favorite. “God doesn’t have favorites!” she said with indignation.
Well, I get that. But let’s think about it.
If God is infinitely loving, infinitely powerful, infinitely…well…INFINITE, then why can’t He have more than one favorite?! He loved the whole world so much He gave His only Son for us. Yes, I totally believe I’m His favorite. And I believe You are, too.
