When you become Christ's daughter, you're a whole new you. You're given a new name, a new title, a new identity: His chosen one, His beloved. You no longer are defined by your past mistakes or the things people said about you. Your past is laid at the foot of the cross, and you are clothed with a new story, a fresh start, and a beautiful call to be loved by the King of Kings. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" You don't have to have it all together or meet certain requirements. Christ is offering your crown of beautiful life-restoration this very moment. You simply have to accept your new title. He has pursued you just to know you, just to call you His beloved. 

1 Peter 2:9 declares, "you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." God has already chosen you, designed you to have a life that declares His praises. He wants you to step out of darkness into a life filled with His light and love. He sees you and has a unique plan for your life. More than anything, He wants to lavish His love on you and watch you live your life as someone deeply cherished.

Living life as His beloved is the only way to live fully satisfied, and the title of 'His beloved' is the only title worthy of our lives. 

Will you choose to be His beloved today?
