He loves you so much, and created you as a unique person with so many wonderful gifts and talents. On your birthday and every day, may you remember how precious you are in His eyes.” 

I turned another year older yesterday, and these words, printed on a pretty card I received from a sweet friend, were a beautiful reminder of God’s love for you and I. We are His creation, and from day one He sent His son for us, guided us, and loved us with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). 

You are absolutely stunning in His eyes, and He embraces every facet of your being. Your crooked teeth, freckled face, pale skin, dark skin, button nose, big eyes, thin lips, curvy body or narrow waist, are intricately placed, and make you fabulously you. You are intelligent and witty, thoughtful and caring, and full of promise and dreams. 

When I think about the fact that He knew us before we were even formed in our mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5), my mind is blown. As I meditate on the thought that we all enter this world on a particular day and with a special purpose, my heart is overwhelmed with glee. I can walk with confidence, not because of what I've done, but in knowing that I am my Father’s pride and joy. Knowledge of this love compels me to seek Him even more, and to Him we are worth the sacrifice. "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners," (Romans‬ ‭5:8‬, NLT). Daughters, God adores us. He truly does. He loves us big, He loves us hard, and He made no mistakes when He called out your name.
