Summer Bible Study

Since I've started 2 journals and since I'm doing a Summer Bible Study and need to journal for that, I've decided to make this journal my 'Study' journal --

Day 1

You are a love song
beauty set to music
You are a love song
I have chosen you
-Theresa Hucul

God created each one of us out of Love. We are beauty set to music. We are one of a kind, uniuqe. We are meant to be a light of love to others.

Isaiah 43:1-7
I have called you by name
You are mine
You are precious in my sight
and honored, and I love you

When I think about God loving me unconditionally as I am I feel so blessed. I don't know of anyone else that loves me for who I am. I know that I'm loved because I'm a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend...but If those titles were taken away, maybe God would be the only one who cared. I've had friends that leave , a husband who died , children that all left home (they were supposed to) I am alone most of the time , but not really, because I am loved by God.

We are using a cup during our study and when I reflect on the Cup of my Life I know that I have love and goodness in me, I just need to be reminded once in a while. The cup is a symbol our our unique self. All cups have a special shape and size just like a person does. The cup is a good container, no matter who uses it. It is of value in itself.

Lord, let me not doubt my value or question my worth. Help me to know and accpt who I am. I am yours. May I bring life to my world.

Today I will try to be a love song for others.

'On Ya' - ma
