when a children’s classic just might influence our identity

Here’s something I’d like to ask God today:

Poppa,

If we gaze on Your grace, will we have a better picture of how You see us?  Will we glimpse what You’ve spelled out for us a little like Charlotte (though You’re never this small) with her stupendous Wilbur?

loved, accepted, forgiven

sepia spider's web

adopted, cherished, my friend,

adored, beautiful, pleasing,

chosen, treasured, beloved,

smiled at, enjoyed, restored,

perfectly made, uncondemned,

not a disappointment – ever.

You see Your Perfect Son this way, and because of His life in us when we believe, You think of us like that too. Don’t you? I can barely wrap my head around such big truth.

Poppa, let us be stupendous, cherished piggies in your barnyard today, happily rolling in Your grace. May we stand in startled wonder as we gaze on Your beyond-comprehension love. May the everyday be transformed when we live out of the true identities You’ve spun for us. And may we go forward with passion and awe, convinced to our very toes that Your grace enables us for the life You’ve given.

Janna, a Grateful Daughter

P.S. If you had a visual reminder (like Charlotte’s Web) of how our Heavenly Father thinks of you, how might that change your everyday?

Janna –
The thought of little pigs happily rolling around in the mud made me smile and to think that we can be like that in our Heavenly Father’s love brings great joy.
Thank you for the very encouraging words.

Carol, I have to laugh at that too! But, it kinda fits doesn’t it? And God loves us so very much and delights in us. That’s the amazing part to me.
