The Glory of the Lord

   How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
    -- 1 John 3:1, New International Version

   To belong is such an important thing.  Moreover, to have one love us, well, that is priceless.  When we experience this type of relationship, things change, we change.  Our focus and direction usually are the elements of our life that become most effected.  Because we want to grow together and not apart, our lives reflect the love and belonging of this relationship.
    Hear the Good News, God is in this type of relationship.  He is reaching out to us, because He want to be in relationship with us.  He in turn, will bring a focus about our life and a direction that will forever change and transform us into all we can be.  Experience the Glory of the Lord.

   Thank You, dear Heavenly Father, for the incredible blessing of being Your child.  I know that while I may not fully understand the magnitude of this relationship, allow me to grow with You, making me closer to You.  Then, I pray, help me to share Your love with others.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
