Truth for the New Year

 As I was thinking about the new year arriving in a few days, I decided to take a look back and see what was on my heart one year ago today.  This post was originally written on December 29th, 2010, and the message is just as relevant today as it was then.  As you look forward to the new year take this promise with you; cling to it if you need to.  God loves you ~ Oh, how He loves!

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, 
that we should be called children of God.  1 John 3:1
Before I ever knew I needed a savior, God had a plan to save me. 
Before I knew I was lost, He made a way for me to be found. 
Before I was born and knew life,
God made a way to save me from death. 
Before I knew I needed to be rescued, He saved me.

Before I called Him my Father, He called me His child.

Many blessings,

  2. So beautiful, Lisa. I got the Godbumps. I'm filled with joy thinking about Him loving me and calling me child before I ever knew Him. Thank you for resharing this.

  4. Before we knew we needed Him, before we called out to Him, before we even were, He knew us and loved us. Beautiful.
