The Lens of Love


In God’s eyes…everyone is a masterpiece.

(Listen to my song “How Wonderful to Me” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 139:1,13-14

O LORD, you have probed me, you know me. You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works!


King David is said to have written this Psalm in praise to God around 3000 years ago.

It’s the same God Who brought the universe into being…and Who wills everything to be…or it would simply disintegrate.

That includes you and me.

We are part of a larger Life.

Scripture tells us that we are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27).

We have been created by Love itself (“God is love” 1 John 4:8).

You and I are children of this wonderful God.

And since God looked on all of creation as “good” (Genesis 1:31)…we are also then innately good.

If you don’t feel like a wonderful work of God…take heart. It is not based on your feelingsbehavior or achievements.

It’s based on your belovedness as a child of God.

Nothing can change that.

Our goodness comes from God…not from anything we do.

So whatever it is about you that you feel disqualifies you from being loved…that is exactly the place where God wants to love you and be with you.

How else would you know and experience Love that is un-conditional?

Open your heart and believe it!
