A Treasure

I have not been feeling very loveable lately. I have been in a huge funk and have been so grumpy. I was hoping the nicer weather would help my mood but nothing has! I have been praying about it a lot because it is affecting my family and other relationships because I feel like I say the wrong things and put my foot in my mouth a lot because of it.

It is amazing to know that despite what I feel God loves me and that is the most important thing. Romans 8: 38-39 says "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." I tell my girls that I love them no matter what and I know that God feels this way about me, even if no one else does.

There is a song by Sanctus Real that I love that makes me realize this.

"When I don't fit in
And I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ"

Wow. I'm a treasure in the arms of Christ. What is better than that!
