God loves you and has chosen you as his own special people. So be gentle, kind, humble, meek, and patient. – Colossians 3:12
It was very impacting to see Aibileen Clark in the movie, The Help, look into the eyes of a little girl and tell her, “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.” She did not want the little girl to forget this, so she repeated it to her often.
Truth sometimes needs to grab us by the shoulders, look us in the eye, and tell us … repeatedly. I imagine God looking deep into our hearts, minds and souls and telling us, “I love you. I have chosen you. You are gentle, kind, humble, meek and patient.” Will we remember?
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the way to remind me of your truth. Today I pray that I will remember it as I journey through today and live in that truth. Amen
Faith Tip: Repeat God’s truth to yourself throughout the day.
