“What would you say if God told you that He had a great gift for you,” she asked.

“I’d tell Him he’d made a mistake and He should give it to the next person in line.” I sobbed.

Later these phrases dropped into my heart.

“Brenda, Beloved Brenda, be loved.” “You are Brenda.” “You are being eternally loved, overwhelmingly valued, and you are endlessly dear.

And I finally accepted that free-for-the-taking love God had offered all along.

Don’t settle for leftovers when God wants you to have the very best.

1 John 4:19-We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19, NIV).

Prayer – Lord, thank you that we are never leftovers in your eyes.  Thank you for making us your Beloved. Amen
