God’s Prized Possession

I’ve been looking through some old pictures this week and couldn’t help but notice that God has created some pretty amazing stuff.

Spectacular oceans,


and lakes

Gorgeous trees,

and beautiful flowers.

Some fun and funky animals

Majestic mountains,

and lush valleys.


and sunsets assuring me that God’s fingerprint is on every day of my life.

But, here’s the most amazing thing. Out of ALL the incredible things God created, you and I are his most prized possession.

He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.” James 1:18 NLT

If that doesn’t just give you a warm fuzzy all over, I don’t know what will. Every time I think of God’s amazing love for me, and the ways he chooses to remind me of that love, I’m just blown away.

Think how much the Father loves us. He loves us so much that he lets us be called his children, as we truly are. But since the people of this world did not know who Christ is, they don’t know who we are.” 1 John 3:1 CEV
