“Father, they are your gift to me.” Jn. 17:24
You are a gift of the Father! God loved you into being, chose you for a particular moment in history, and fashioned you in His image and likeness. You reflect a facet of the glory, the beauty, the mystery of God, and this communication is specific and was entrusted to you. God made you totally unique…and your fingerprints bear witness to the trembling wonder that you are the only you that has ever been and ever will be! If He would take such care in designing the pattern of circles on the tips of your finger, how much more the love of your heart?
Your life is God’s pure, unmerited gift to you; but receive His loving affirmation: you are also a gift to Him.
