I received THE MOST ADORABLE compliment upon arriving at work one morning. This young man was so enthralled by my beauty that his words and demeanor let me know just how he felt. It came as such a surprise, though silently needed at that moment. He wasn’t aware, but I was given just what the doctor ordered. So taken by what had occurred, tears of joy and astonishment radiated my sense of being. As I walked into work, my coworkers sensed that something special had just taken place. Without going into detail, I explained how that moment made me feel. As I sighed and basked in his compliment, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, making me think twice concerning the adornment just received. The way in which that person felt and complimented me is how God feels about me times INFINITY! He is so captivated by His handiwork- seeing my beauty both inside and out. If first things are first, I needed a wake up call to make sure that I did not forget. Yes, it’s okay to relish in the compliment and proved to be timely with the way I was currently feeling that morning. However, I was reminded that He has ALWAYS and FOREVER will be captivated with me. With Jesus, it doesn’t matter if my hairstyle and/or clothing changed. He is more concerned about the condition of my heart and obedience to Him. Nevertheless, He would forever be smitten because I belonged to Him! If you have never known (or possibly forget) just how important you are to Christ, meditate in prayer and bask in His Word. May you know that as a child of the King, you are always loved and forever adored!

Ephesians 3:14-19, For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (NIV)
