“…the LORD your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.” ~Deuteronomy 7:6 (NLT)
Sometimes treasures are buried deep down just waiting for us to excitedly uncover them. Other times, treasures are in plain sight. Treasures like:
A rainbow over the ocean…
Or, a sunset on the Minnesota prairie…
Or, a sundog in winter…
OR…a child’s Vacation Bible School music program finale. 🎶💝
I got goosebumps listening to my grandson and all the other children sing about being “forgiven and chosen forever, I am a treasure.” The message in that song was exactly what this grandma’s heart needed. A reminder for me, and all of us, that we ARE who God says we are.
Deuteronomy 7:6 (NLT) reminds us of this: “…the LORD your God has chosen you to be His own special treasure.” Hmmm…why would he choose me I wonder? Why did the Lord choose us? A few verses later in Deuteronomy 7:8a explains why: “…it was simply that the LORD loves you…”
Wow! I don’t know about you, but that blows my mind, and it gives me more goosebumps. It is exactly what I needed to hear…again!
Please know, we are loved and we are treasured! It’s that simple! Both are in plain sight!
