"God made me. And 'den...um...God loves me."
The smallest amounts of words often carry the most weight. Even more so when it's from a child's mouth.
If you've ever wondered, "Why am I here?" or "What is my purpose?" I think it can really come down to the story of the little girl who shared this with me after Sunday school without anyone asking.
You were made to be loved by the One who made you. And you are here to fall into it, despite all the baggage you carry.
It's that easy and that hard.
Simple enough for a child to lean into. Powerful enough to change the story of the human race.
A story that happens to be your's.
1 John 3:1 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
