Long before the Father lay down earth’s foundations,
He had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of His love,
to be made whole and holy by His love.”
Ephesians 1:4 The Message
“You are a beloved child of God, spoken forth out of the heart of God’s love before the foundation of the world. The union of a man and a woman that brought about your physical conception is only the secondary cause of your being.
The primary center of your identity is the heart of God’s love before the foundation of the world.”
from “The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self” by M. Robert Mulholland Jr.
“Strengthen your sense of identity and knowledge of your true self in Christ by asking Jesus to reveal the truth about who you are. As Jesus affirms your sense of being, He provides an assurance of worth and helps you know the true self He created.”
“Jesus, reveal to me the truth of who I am and help me to experience this truth.”
