Isn't it a nice thought to know God believes in us, just as much as we do Him? My God believes in me! And I'm sometimes so insignificant to myself, I have to think He must find a true value in whoever I am to take time from Godly ways and just...believe in ME!
And YOU. And yours. I don't know what makes the good Lord cherish such as mankind, so puny and fragile yet stubborn and fierce. I know He decided to bring a most beloved creation into being, and that's us, His most favored most intelligent creatures - to sheperd this ship we're on called planet Earth, to care for each other with gentleness and patient love, to respect all life, and, when we remember, to thank Him for His mercies.
What did we do SO RIGHT as to deserve this Diety of whom so much is unknown yet known so well by the human heart? Don't you feel God in the depth of your being, and not in your logical thoughts? Isn't He more loving than the act of love itself? Isn't He more forgiving than forgiveness? More kind than any act of kindness? And aren't we as ready and anxious to be with Him in our true time as those who went before? I know I am, I'm SURE I am.
