"My heart is stedfast, O God...Be exalted O God, above the heavens...that Thy beloved may be delivered, Save with Thy right hand, and answer me! -Ps 108 NASB
BELOVED. What a beautiful word! "I am my beloved's, and He is mine,
His banner over me is love."
I love the thought of being beloved. Beloved by God, beloved by my husband. To be the undeserving recipient of such desire, such care, such attention--that is the source of my self-worth and confidence.
When I am grounded in this belovedness, then I have the strength and resources to let that love flow onto others.
