Always Remember

I have been cleaning and organizing around the house, a very good thing, and came across a birthday card someone had given me many years ago. We were going through a difficult time in our lives and this card not only brought birthday wishes but some truths I needed to read during that time. This little card so impacted me that I used to keep it in my bible for a long time. I would pull that card out of that bible and read it and reread it, trying to hold on to what was true. Things got better and the little card was eventually relegated to a drawer, seemingly lost forever until I found it the other day. Maybe this is something that you need to read today

                                             Always remember,  When God made you
                                             He did so with a purpose and a plan. He saw all the days
                                             before you lived one of them and placed over you the
                                             covering of His protective love, 
                                             He has allowed nothing to come into your life that has not
                                             first been screened through that love.
                                             His Hand has remained upon you to this very day.
                                             He calls you by name. You are His beloved child
                                             the apple of His eye...the delight of his heart.
                                             Today you are in the exact place he wants you to be,
                                             and tomorrow He will be with you as He has always
                                             been---in goodness, in kindness, in faithfulness.....from Dayspring Card
