So today in my Isaiah study our lecturer was speaking of our worth. You know....Christ loves us so much that He DIED for us. After the lecture the teacher and I were also talking about how we are a love gift from Father to the Son that the Son gives back to the Father. John 17 (read it, so AMAZING). I am a love gift? A GIFT TO CHRIST!!! WHOA! This is what I think of when I think of a gift...It's something you choose for someone you love, something you know they will love. Something that will bring them joy. A gift is something that is thought out in advance because we want it to be the perfect gift. And we all know that God can only give good gifts. I am a good gift????? Seriously?? Too, I am a gift that comes without a gift receipt. I cannot be returned!
And then I get home to find out my good friend is now holding her new gift, a son. A precious gift from God. My heart is really exploding.

Amazing...we are a gift from the Father to the Son in which the Son gifts back to the Father. Our children...gifts from the Lord...gifts we give back to Father.
I don't know, is it me or is that just so H.U.M.B.L.I.N.G!!!!!!!!!
