‘Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us.’
Many of us grew up singing this song:
‘Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red, brown, yellow
Black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world.’ - George Frederick Root
What a wonderful reminder that, no matter who we are or where we are, Jesus loves us. We are each created as a special package of gifts, talents, interests, and needs. We fall short of our potential because of sin, yet, Jesus loves us. What better reassurance could we have? The shortcomings that we have, don’t make us less desirable to God. He holds on to us tighter and guides us on our walk. That is something we can celebrate each and every day.
Knowing that we are forgiven, gives us encouragement and the strength to share our love for Jesus with others. Whether we are in a classroom teaching, serving in another capacity, retired and volunteering, etc… we are all loved by God and precious to Him.
Be uplifted and reminded that you are His precious child. Doubts? See and hear what Christ crucified and risen has to say to you, “Peace be with you.”
As we place our faith and trust in God (no matter the stresses we face), we can all be thankful that God holds us in the palm of His hand and gives us what He knows is best for us. So, when trials come (including the stresses of COVID19 and keeping your school safe), step back and know God’s plan is perfect. Stay in the Word. Take care of yourself to be Well. Use your words and life as a Witness.
Remember each day – Christ loves you and holds you close.
