You are the Beloved!

Really, who are we?  What does the world say?  The world says, “You are what people say about you.” “You are what you do.”  “You are what you have.”

What does God say?  God says, “You are the beloved.”  It does not matter to God the Father what people say about you, or what you can or cannot do, or what you have or do not have.  God is happy if you can do things.  He is happy if you have things.  He is happy if people are at peace with you.  That does not make you who you are.  It does not matter what you do if you do it with love.  Love God, love people.

What people say, what you can do, and what you have can change from one day to the next.  Only God can help us to see the real person that we are.  God sees the fully blooming amaryllis or rose in each of us when we see only the grey bulb or awkward green leaves.  You are not what you do or what you have or what people say about you.  You are the beloved of God.  This is the most important reality of your life!

Do not worry about unnecessary things, do not imagine or worry about what will happen tomorrow. Live today!  Believe that God took care of you yesterday, He took care of you today, He will take care of you tomorrow.  Stay in the company of the Lord and everything you do will have meaning.  Embrace Him and say “I love you too, Lord.  I believe, help my unbelief.”  If you do that you will see miracles happen.  You are the beloved of the Lord, and that will never change.  Live on that deeper level of consciousness: “I am the beloved.”
