Single mother working two jobs and raising three kids were the circumstances in my life for as long as I could remember. Growing up I sought affirmation in all of the wrong places which led to some destructive life choices. In moments of hindered faith, I so often forget the saying in the design above. Like many, I have to fight the voice in my head telling me day in and day out that “God can’t love someone who has made the choices you've made” ... but those words are far from the truth.
Matthew 3:17 reads “And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” In this passage, God The Father is affirming His love and pleasure for Jesus. The interesting thing is that at this point in Jesus’ life, he hasn’t done a whole lot. As far as we know He hasn't started his ministry, hasn't done any miracles, or hasn't brought anyone back from the dead. YET, God says the words that we all desperately long to hear...”This is my son... my daughter... who I love dearly and am so pleased with.”
I believe that God is speaking the same words over you today that he did to Jesus 2000+ years ago. No matter where you’re at, no matter what you’ve done, or what you’re going through, if you are in Christ than God has TOTALLY forgiven you and you are FULLY pleasing to Him.
