(a) You did not choose me. I chose you.
Among the things my mom gave me for Christmas, she gave me a book called His Princess, Love Letters from Your King by Sheri Rose Shepherd. I finally got around to opening the book tonight and before I could even read the forward, this was the Scripture on the page.
You see, for as long as I could remember, I have struggled with self-esteem, self-respect, etc. I have struggled with really knowing that I am God’s princess. I know it in my head and somewhere deep in my heart, but I don’t think I’ve ever fully realized it. So, knowing this, my mother bought me a gift that she knew would stretch me and strengthen me and help me realize my worth in God’s eyes.
Be prepared, faithful readers, because as I go through this book I will be sharing some insights with you. And if you find that you, like me, have a hard time knowing your worth in God’s eyes, I hope that you will see exactly how God feels about you too!
