YOU ARE ACCEPTED

YOU ARE ACCEPTED
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

We lose sight of who we are when we forget "whose" we are.
Christ identifies us as His own …
He forges our identity,
Facilitates integrity,
Fosters intimacy,
Fulfills man internally.
He initiates,
Enforces,
Employs vast resources ...
 Toward our growth and our good.
~~~
He is constant in His devotion to us,
Desire for us,
Deliberation of us,
and declaration to us …
Who we are
And
Who He is.

Listen to Him.

The individual who recognizes Christ …
Runs to Him,
Relies on Him,
Returns to Him,
Will find rest in Him ...
And in time radiate and reflect Him.
Rest assured “you” are loved by the Lord.
He has accepted "you."

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, “Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
Jeremiah 31:3
