“Of all the people on earth, the LORD your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.” (Deuteronomy‬ ‭7‬:‭6‬ NLT)

As I sat at the Burger King restaurant last night after church, I was privileged to be hanging out with some special friends, the ladies from Teen Challenge in Russellville, AR. I sat listening to their stories, where they came from, the addictions and past scars they are seeking to overcome, and the scriptures that they are standing on to accomplish it. To me, I was sitting amongst the bravest heroes I had ever met: Those that will truly fight their personal demons!

One of them shared this verse with me and it immediately struck my heart. How many of us sit in our regrets, stained by sin and failure, cultivating and perfecting the hatred we feel for ourselves to the point that we could NEVER see ourselves as treasurable? I would dare say that it would be all of us and probably occurs everyday. 

So here is a word of hope for today! You are truly a treasure to God! Don’t focus on the failed opinions of others or even yourself. Get to know God’s loving thoughts towards you and grow in that beautiful relationship! You are free to be loved today!
