Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 17:8
Today I pray that I will see myself as your child, loved and beautiful. Shelter me in the protection of your embrace and help me to feel loved and safe no matter what the day brings. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
What a lovely image this scripture conjures. We are truly God’s children. He sees us as beautiful and precious. No matter our past, no matter our failures, or regrets, God sees us for who He created us to be. Ask for his love to be revealed today. Ask for His protection, His guidance, and His mercy. Thank God for the gift of a new day and for the blessing He has placed in your life.
Just as a mother draws her child close and whispers her love, God also wants us to be close to Him and feel His love surround us.
Take a moment to think about a time in your childhood when your parents really showed their love for you. Take a moment to think about a time when you showered your children with love. How much more do you think God loves and adores you? You truly are the apple of His eye.
